Cathay Pacific introduces Business Class on Hyderabad-Hong Kong flights
The Economic Times
Feb 2, 2013, 04.41PM IST

KOLKATA: Cathay Pacific Airways has introduced its business class cabin and new premium economy class cabin for passengers travelling between Hyderabad and Hong Kong route.

Following the recent launch of flights from this city, Hyderabad will now offer a three-class configuration - new business class, premium economy class and the new long-haul economy class for passengers travelling to Hong Kong from February 1, 2013.

The airline's new business class cabin is the result of a collaboration be-tween its customers and the Cathay Pacific team. The product design allows passengers to control their degree of privacy and openness while enjoying the renowned personal service.

Cathay Pacific recently introduced new award winning in-flight products in Delhi and Chennai and has also extended its presence in India with a new four-times-weekly service between Hong Kong and Hyderabad. Together with sister airline Dragonair, the group now operates 46 weekly flights from six cities in India.

Cathay Evaluating Widebody Needs, Considering A380s And 747-8s
Aviation Week
February 01, 2013

Cathay Pacific CEO John Slosar tells Aviation Week the airline is evaluating the Airbus A380 and Boeing 747-8 and expects to make a decision on whether to place an order for passenger variants in the first half of 2013.

Cathay will have phased out most of its 747-400 passenger aircraft by the end of the year, and has to deal with slot constraints at London Heathrow Airport and Hong Kong International Airport, Slosar says.

And while his predecessor found cost inefficiencies with the A380 and preferred the cargo capacity of the 777-300ER, Slosar notes that the maximum takeoff weight of aircraft like the A380 changes as improvements are made to the aircraft.

Slosar also acknowledges that the 747-8 freighters already operating in Cathay’s fleet “are operating very well as freighters.” He did not say how many aircraft Cathay will need.

The CEO anticipates that Boeing’s immediate problems with the 787 program may inadvertently delay the unveiling of the airframer’s 777X. He had earlier predicted that Boeing would officially launch the 777X program in the first half of 2013, but in light of recent problems with the 787 program he says he may have to change his prediction.

Slosar reasons that the need to devote engineering resources to resolve problems with the 787’s lithium-ion batteries will divert attention from the next generation of the 777. “I haven’t heard anything recently about the 777X,” Cathay’s CEO tells Aviation Week on the sidelines of an event marking Malaysia Airlines’ entry into Oneworld.

As for the 787 program, Slosar expects the current problems will be resolved. “There’s been a bit of a stumble, but I don’t have any doubts that they [Boeing] will get this fixed. Boeing is a world-class company that knows what they are doing.”

Cathay Pacific Seeks to Upgrade Cargo With Diamond Focus
By Jasmine Wang - Feb 7, 2013 5:08 PM GMT+0800
Bloomberg

Cathay Pacific Airways Ltd. aims to replicate its business-class strategy in a cargo trade upgrade. It wants to fly more diamonds and medicines rather than T-shirts.

“Similar to the passenger service, we are not a low-cost carrier,” said Nick Rhodes, the airline’s cargo director. “We try to be a full-service cargo carrier. That’s really our DNA.”

The world’s biggest international air-cargo carrier will start operating its first independently owned goods terminal at its home base in Hong Kong later this month, increasing that airport’s capacity by half. The airline has spent HK$5.9 billion ($761 million) on a facility it says will help Cathay target an increase of up to 20 percent in more profitable shipments of high-value goods, perishables and vaccines.

Success with that strategy is critical to boosting profit in a business that accounts for over a fifth of the airline’s revenue. Cathay has cut some cargo flights while Middle East carriers like Emirates boost capacity and increase competition with Asian rivals. Singapore Airlines Ltd. and Korean Air Lines Co. also want to move to higher-value goods even as the global air-freight market declined for a second straight year in 2012, amid a slump in demand across Europe.

“Cathay chasing higher-end products will help broaden its cargo sources and boost revenue,” said Geoffrey Cheng, a Hong Kong-based analyst at Bank of Communications Co., with a neutral rating on the stock. “It will lose to rivals if it fails to capitalize on the relatively faster-growing seafood and pharmaceutical demand.”

Cathay Pacific rose 1.1 percent, the most since Jan. 18, to close at HK$15.12 in Hong Kong trading. The city’s benchmark Hang Seng Index lost 0.3 percent.

1,000 CC-TVs

A chain of 1,000 closed-circuit television and biometric fingerprint systems have been installed in the new terminal, according to Portia Cheuk, a spokeswoman of the facilities’ operator Cathay Pacific Services Ltd. said in an interview. Special measures are also in place to boost security when dealing with high-value items such as diamonds and gold bullion, she said.

At the terminal, the location that handles high-value items such as diamonds is the most-restricted zone. Only a limited number of staff have access and visitors are restricted.

Cathay, which moves cargoes with 22 dedicated aircraft and bellies of passenger aircraft, carried 1.56 million tons of cargo and mail last year, 5.3 percent less than a year earlier, the company said in a statement last month. Revenue, measured by weight multiplied by kilometers, also fell 7.3 percent to 8.94 million.

Globally, the air freight market shrank 1.5 percent in 2012, according to the International Air Transport Association. Passenger demand increased 5.3 percent.

Emirates, Etihad

Asian airlines, the biggest players in the air-cargo market, reported a 5.5 percent decline in demand, and 2.4 percent cut in capacity last year, according to IATA. In comparison, Gulf carriers including Emirates and Etihad Airways saw demand growing 14.7 percent, and the biggest capacity expansion at 11.4 percent, it said.

“The industry suffered a one-two punch,” IATA Director General Tony Tyler said in a Jan. 31 statement. “World trade declined sharply. And the goods that were traded, shifted towards bulk commodities more suited for sea shipping,” said Tyler, a former chief executive officer of Cathay.

Cathay said in August that it posted a loss of HK$935 million in the six months ended June. Chief Executive Officer John Slosar told staff in November that the carrier was facing a “very challenging year,” referring to 2012. The airline is due to report its full-year results on March 13.

Most Complicated

Profit in the year ended in December may be HK$812 million, according to the average of 12 analyst estimates compiled by Bloomberg. In 2011, the company had a profit of HK$5.5 billion.

“Our strategy is to chase the most complicated, difficult- to-handle cargoes from shippers who are very demanding,” Cathay cargo director Rhodes said. “We can look after their cargoes, we can’t compete just on price.”

Cathay cut freighter frequencies to Europe 63 percent to 11 flights per week earlier this year from about 30 flights a week in 2008, as a decline in the Asia-Europe market hurt the carrier the most, Rhodes said in an interview on Feb. 6. The airline got 24 percent of its sales from cargo in the first half of last year.

The new terminal, together with 10 Boeing 747-8 freighters Cathay ordered in 2007, are long-term investments as Hong Kong has the advantage of being located in the center of Asia, Rhodes said. The carrier has received eight of those freighters with the remaining two set for delivery later this year.

Construction of the terminal had been delayed for one and a half years during the financial crisis, according to Cheuk.

‘Bad Timing’

It’s “bad timing” for Cathay to get the freighters and open the new terminal, said Bank of Communications analyst Cheng. “But it can’t do much about it. As a market leader, Cathay has to look at long-term development and continue to invest if it doesn’t want to lose market share.”

Rivals are pressing on. Singapore Air’s flights in the Southwest Pacific region posted the biggest improvement in cargo load factor in December after it moved seasonable perishables, the carrier said in a statement earlier last month. The carrier filled 66.1 percent of its planes on this service, an increase from 59.6 percent a year earlier.

Korean Air has also been focusing on moving high-margin products, such as perishable goods and medicines, to ensure profitability, the carrier said in a statement Feb. 1.

With air conditioning, Cathay’s new facility is designed to help store the likes of flowers, medicines and perishable goods for transport.

Fresh Goods

The terminal, which has a site area of 11 hectares, is designed to have an annual capacity of 2.6 million tons, increasing Hong Kong International Airport’s annual capacity 50 percent to 7.4 million tons. It will have full operation in the second half of this year.

Cathay and its Hong Kong Dragon Airline Ltd. unit will be the terminal’s initial customers. The major terminal in the city Cathay uses is owned by a group of investors including Jardine, Matheson & Co., Hutchison Port Holdings Ltd. and The Wharf (Holdings) Ltd.

The facility aims to cut loading and unloading times to keep the lobsters, fish and flowers fresh.

“Hong Kong people always like fresh goods,” Cheuk said.

Inside Cathay Pacific's revamped first class lounge
If the champagne bar doesn't convince you to spring for an upgrade, the bathtub suites (bathtub suites!) might
By CNN Travel staff
12 February, 2013







Airport lounge or luxury hotel? Each of the The Wing's five cabanas has a full-sized bath and day bed. Don't forget you have a flight to catch.

Cathay Pacific Airways has given its flagship first class lounge a stunning makeover.

Part of The Wing, the revamped 1,697-square-meter facility located inside Hong Kong International Airport, the new space was unveiled last week after being closed for renovations since 2010.

Changes include increased capacity at The Haven, the lounge's dining area. The space features an expanded buffet counter with appetizers, Asian and Western dishes and desserts and an à la carte menu with wine.

There's also a new full-service bar overlooking a runway and The Champagne Bar, where members have access to free-flow pours.

The Wing's five cabanas have been upgraded. Each now features a shower, full-sized bath and day bed. These are in addition to 12 shower suites.

The Wing’s first class lounge is open to first class passengers, Diamond Marco Polo Club members and Emerald oneworld members. Opening hours are 5:30 a.m. until the last departure of the day.

Cathay Pacific releases combined traffic figures for January 2013
20 February 2013
Press Release

Cathay Pacific Airways today released combined Cathay Pacific and Dragonair traffic figures for January 2013 that show a drop in the number of passengers carried compared to the same month in 2012, alongside a significant year-on-year increase in cargo and mail tonnage.

Cathay Pacific and Dragonair carried a total of 2,327,071 passengers in January – a drop of 7.3% compared to the same month last year. The passenger load factor fell by 3.4 percentage points to 78.5%, while capacity, measured in available seat kilometres (ASKs), saw a 6.3% decline.

The two airlines carried 132,792 tonnes of cargo and mail last month, an increase of 14.2% compared to January 2012. The cargo and mail load factor rose by 3.1 percentage points to 63%. Capacity, measured in available cargo/mail tonne kilometres, rose by 2.4%, while cargo and mail revenue tonne kilometres were up by 7.7%.

Cathay Pacific General Manager Revenue Management James Tong said: “Year-on-year comparisons for January’s passenger business are distorted by the holiday effect – last year the Chinese New Year peak was in January while this year the holiday fell in February. The drop in passenger numbers is partly attributed to the impact of the holiday and also to the fact that we trimmed our capacity. Passenger demand on long-haul routes remained reasonably strong though the performance on regional routes was softer than anticipated. There was no significant pick-up in demand in the premium cabins following the Christmas/New Year break.”

Cathay Pacific General Manager Cargo Sales & Marketing James Woodrow said: “Demand was generally quite robust out of our key Hong Kong and Mainland China markets in January, though we didn’t see any significant pre-Chinese New Year rush as in previous years. We have reduced our base freighter schedule to Europe in light of the continued weakness in demand on the Asia to Europe lanes. We will continue to adjust our capacity in line with demand and push ahead with the modernisation of our freighter fleet. Another Boeing 747-400 converted freighter will be taken out of service in February.”

Airlines' tangled alliances evolve: British Airways-Cathay Pacific codeshare to Australia - for now
CAPA
28th February, 2013

Implications continue to emerge from the Sep-2012 landmark Emirates-Qantas alliance, the latest development being a codeshare covering Australia for British Airways and Cathay Pacific. Although the two are members of the oneworld alliance and at first blush may be considered partners, they had the most minimal of ties, owing to significant competition between them.

That competitive situation still exists but other factors have changed: BA's once deep partner Qantas is now a competitor, aligned with Emirates, and is establishing a Jetstar franchise on Cathay's home turf in Hong Kong. BA and Cathay are united by a common enemy – not the first occasion this reasoning has spawned an alliance – but also other factors. BA has lost its Australian network access and Cathay fits in; meanwhile Cathay will be receptive to feed to sustain its positioning after China Southern and Singapore Airlines have made large capacity increases in Australia.

Alliances are evolving, and this partnership will surely change – or go extinct – as BA becomes more familiar with new oneworld members Malaysia Airlines and Qatar Airways, with whom it will have more in common than it does with Cathay.

The proposed codeshare covers Cathay's services from Hong Kong to Adelaide, Brisbane, Melbourne, Perth and Sydney, subject to Australian regulatory approval (but some city pairs are already available for sale). BA has double daily London-Hong Kong services, one with a 747-400 and the other a 777-200, which becomes a 747-400 service from Apr-2013. BA has spoken of Hong Kong being one of the first markets for its forthcoming A380s. Slots are scarce at Heathrow and limited at Hong Kong; BA's two services depart Hong Kong within 30 minutes of each other.
