Dragonair named Skytrax “World Best Regional Airline” for the third time celebratory offers launched to thank passengers
Press Release
25 Jun 2013



(HONG KONG) Dragonair, three-time winner of the Skytrax “World’s Best Regional Airline” award, announced a series of celebratory offers to thank passengers for their support. The Skytrax World Airline AwardsTM is the largest airline passenger satisfaction survey and the most prestigious among all the surveys measuring airline service excellence. The results are based on the votes of more than 18 million airline passengers from more than 160 countries. Dragonair is equally honoured to be named “Best Regional Airline in Asia” in the same survey.

Dragonair Chief Executive Officer Patrick Yeung said the awards reflect the great teamwork displayed by Dragonair staff. “What won us the recognition from Skytrax is the hard work, commitment and professionalism of our frontline staff and those who support the operation behind the scenes. They should all feel very proud.”

To share their joy and to thank passengers for their support, Dragonair is launching a series of celebratory offers from July to September, including double Asia Miles, inflight sales offers and tasty surprises.

Mr Yeung said at a media gathering today: “We are proud to share our Skytrax accolades, which belong to Hong Kong, our home city for 28 years. We hope that our passengers will love the celebratory offers and surprises that we are offering.”

Dragonair, an affiliate member of oneworld, is a Hong Kong-based airline operating a fleet of 39 passenger aircraft and serving 45 regional destinations, including 22 cities in Mainland China. Dragonair has been recognised for its product and service quality, and was named the “Best Regional Airline” at the TTG Travel Awards 2012, and voted thrice as "World's Best Regional Airline" in the annual Skytrax World Airline Awards™ in 2010, 2011 and 2013. Dragonair is part of the Cathay Pacific Group, providing seamless connectivity for passengers to more than 170 cities around the globe.

Cathay Pacific: Russian airports too expensive
July 11, 2013
RBTH

Cathay Pacific general manager for Europe, Angus Barclay, speaks about the Hong Kong-based airline’s strategies to stay in profit, expensive Russian airports, and partnership with Russian tour operators.

Q: Which tour operators do you find it easier to work with, European or Russian ones? And what are the main differences between them?

A: The Russian market opened up fairly recently, and it is still growing very rapidly. We have always seen new markets as a good learning opportunity. We provide a lot of information support to our Russian customers; we explain the specifics of travel to China, and tell them about the country's traditions and distinctive features. That, I think, is probably the only difference. In addition, many countries have long-established ethnic Chinese communities, the so-called China towns. Russia is not one of those countries.
Related:

Q: What is the share of your global revenues generated by your Russian division?

A: It remains fairly small for now. Cathay Pacific operates 73 flights to Europe every week, of which only three flights are to Moscow. That’s about 4 per cent of all our flights to Europe. The percentage of our revenues generated by our Russian division is about the same. The operational indicators fluctuate depending on the season; we usually have fewer people on our flights in winter than in summer.

Q: Have the passenger numbers increased following the introduction of visa-free travel regime?

A: The lifting of the visa requirement has been one of the main reasons why we have launched flights to Moscow. We are already seeing some good results; the numbers of passengers travelling from Russia to Hong Kong are growing by almost 50 per cent every year.

Q: Do you have any plans to sign contracts with Russian airlines?

A: We are already working very closely with the Russian airline S7, which is a fellow member of the Oneworld alliance. In accordance with our agreements, Cathay Pacific tariffs for flights from Moscow to Hong Kong are combined with special tariffs offered by S7 on domestic flights from the Russian provinces; there is also a zero tariff on flights between Moscow and St Petersburg, Kazan, and Nizhny Novgorod.

In June we also signed a code-sharing agreement with S7; under the terms of that agreement we have code-shared flights from Vladivostok and Khabarovsk to Hong Kong, and from St Petersburg to Hong Kong via Moscow. I think that in the future we will continue to expand our cooperation with Russian airlines. We already have some very positive experience in this area.

Q: Cathay Pacific offers flights from Moscow not only to China, but also to Thailand, Japan, Korea, New Zealand and Australia. Do you have any ongoing cooperation programs with Russian tour operators, and what are the terms?

A: We have established very good working relations with Russian tour operators. We sell tickets to tour groups as well as individual travellers.

Q: What can you say about the investment climate in Russia compared to such places as China or Europe?

A: Frankly speaking, I am not really an expert on investment. The Asian market offers great opportunities not just for tourism but also for business. That is why we mainly offer flights to Hong Kong, Thailand, and other countries in the region. Looking at the situation from a global perspective, all the countries that are showing rapid economic growth are in Asia, as a rule. This is also demonstrated by the rapid growth in the number of passengers flying to Asian destinations for business as well as pleasure. We hope to see similar growth figures in Russia as well very soon.

Q: Are you happy with the quality and the cost of service at Russian airports?

A: The services of Russian airports are very expensive. This is obviously very worrying for us, the airlines. As for the quality of service, every time I come to Russia I notice that the quality is getting better - but there is still room for improvement.

Q: What can you say about your financial year so far? Are you expecting a growth in revenues?

A: Last year we had a small increase in our profits; it was not large, owing mainly to growing fuel costs. Speaking of our company, fuel accounts for more than 40 per cent of our costs. Nevertheless, last year we made a profit of 115 million dollars. We hope to do better this year.

Q: Do you have any plans of buying Russian-made aircraft, such as the Sukhoi Superjet? What can you say about the quality of Russian planes? Is there a market for them?

A: Our partners are Boeing and Airbus. Our fleet consists only of wide-body aircraft, which we use very effectively on long-haul flights, as well as some medium-haul routes. The Superjet is a short-haul aircraft, and we don’t have any short-haul jets in our fleet. As an airline, we try to keep the number of different models in our fleet to a minimum; this makes sense economically and in terms of operational planning.

That is why currently we are not interested in buying Superjets. But we are always glad to see an advanced new product on the market. When an airline has a choice of technology offered by different makers, it is good for business and for the market as a whole.

I am surprised Cathay only operates 73 flights to Europe. That's just 10 a day and I guess 3 or 4 of those would just be to London. Wouldn't there be a huge premium-heavy traffic between HK and Europe (not even talking about connections to other Asian cities)?

Lack of Oneworld Partners in Europe?

Maybe they could fly to Berlin (home of OW partner Air Berlin) or Amsterdam for example?

They already fly to Amsterdam, but I wonder what is the deal with Madrid (Iberia/BA under OneWorld)? I have a feeling that a HKG-MAD route would be profitable if serviced 2-3x a week?

Maybe due to the economic recession in Spain and they are better off connecting passengers aiming for South America via Qantas

Cathay Pacific set to fly to the Maldives, one of the world’s most exotic holiday destinations
Press Release
22 Jul 2013

Cathay Pacific Airways today announced that it will launch a new four-times-weekly service to the Maldives, one of the most-sought-after getaways in the world for leisure travellers. The new service is scheduled to commence on 27 October 2013, subject to government approval.

Located in the middle of the Indian Ocean, the Maldives is a chain of islands whose beauty is unsurpassed, with pristine white-sand beaches, azure seas and amazing coral reefs. The islands are home to a rich marine life, including several endangered species, and are considered by many travellers as the perfect place for a honeymoon. Visitors to the Maldives currently enjoy a free 30-day visa on arrival in the capital city, Malé.

To ensure passengers enjoy the maximum comfort for their journey to the Maldives, Cathay Pacific will use an Airbus A330-300 aircraft equipped with its award-winning Business Class, new Premium Economy Class and Long-haul Economy Class cabins. Flights will depart from Hong Kong to Malé International Airport every Wednesday, Thursday, Saturday and Sunday.

All passengers will get to enjoy the airline’s premium inflight service, delivered by our cabin crew, who were recently honoured with the “World’s Best Cabin Staff” award at the annual Skytrax World Airline Awards. Passengers will also enjoy state-of-the-art inflight entertainment featuring on-demand video and audio in all classes of travel.

Cathay Pacific Chief Executive John Slosar said: "The Maldives is the perfect getaway for holidaymakers from Hong Kong and around the world. Cathay Pacific is a premium service airline and our passengers will enjoy the best products and services when they fly with us to the Maldives. The continued expansion of our network highlights our commitment to boosting Hong Kong's place as one of the world’s great international aviation hubs."

Airbus delivers its 1,000th A330 to Cathay Pacific
Airbus Press Release
19 July 2013

New milestone for best-selling widebody







Airbus has celebrated the delivery of the 1,000th A330. The aircraft, an A330-300 powered by Rolls-Royce Trent 700 engines, was handed over to Cathay Pacific Airways at special ceremony in Toulouse today. Cathay Pacific together with its sister airline Dragonair is the world’s largest operator of the A330, with a total of 56 now in service.

The 1,000th delivery comes as the A330 continues to enjoy increasing popularity with airlines across the globe. Continuously enhanced to maintain its economic advantage, the aircraft remains the most cost-efficient twin engine widebody in service today for both regional and long haul routes, with the latest versions capable of flying non-stop on sectors of up to 7,250 nautical miles / 13,420 km. The spacious cabin is a firm favourite with passengers, offering the best comfort in its category and the latest state-of-the-art in-flight entertainment systems and connectivity options.

“The A330 has played an integral part in Cathay Pacific’s growth and we look forward to continuing our successful partnership in the future,” said Ivan Chu, Chief Operating Officer, Cathay Pacific Airways. “The A330 is the backbone of our mid-size fleet and we are delighted with the reliability, flexibility and above all the economics of this great aircraft. We are very proud to be the recipient of the 1,000th A330.”

“It is of particular importance for us to be celebrating this 1000th A330 delivery milestone with our long-standing partner Cathay Pacific Airways,” said John Leahy, Chief Operating Officer, Customers. “The A330 offers the lowest operating costs of any aircraft in its category in service today and is unmatched even by the latest competing aircraft. The fact that a world-leading airline such as Cathay Pacific Airways has placed so many repeat orders says it all.”

Since its first delivery of the A330 in 1995, Cathay Pacific’s Airbus fleet now comprises 38 A330-300s and 11 A340s, while Dragonair flies 21 single aisle A320 Family aircraft and 18 A330-300s. The Cathay Pacific Group has outstanding orders for 10 more A330-300s. The airline will also take delivery of 48 all-new A350 XWBs in the future, including 46 ordered from Airbus and two leased aircraft.

The wide market appeal of the A330 Family is demonstrated daily by over 100 operators, including network carriers, low cost, charter and flag carriers, who fly A330s on all missions from 30 minutes to over 14 hours. About 1.2 billion passengers have enjoyed travelling on board the light, bright and spacious A330 cabin to and from the 300 airports it serves today. More than 1,250 A330s have been ordered to date.

South China Morning Post
Cathay Pacific loses out as cargo demand dwindles in Europe
17 July 2013

Cathay Pacific Airways has lost market share on European cargo routes as freight rates sink on weak demand from the troubled euro zone.

The carrier expects the overcapacity problem in the cargo market will only be corrected in the last quarter of the year. If we cannot cover our costs, we have ... to reduce our freight capacity Nick Rhodes, Cathay Pacific Airways

"Cathay has lost some market share during the downturn, especially to Europe," said cargo director Nick Rhodes. "If the rates reach a level where we cannot cover our operating costs, we have no choice but to reduce our freight capacity."

Cathay has halved its freighter capacity on European routes to 11 freighters weekly from 21 last year. Overall capacity fell 1.8 per cent in the first half of the year.

Cathay said earlier its cargo tonnage dropped more than 4 per cent last month from a year earlier, against 1 per cent cargo growth at the airport.

Rhodes said Cathay was opting to carry high-yield or special cargo, which was still profitable.

The disequilibrium would only be corrected in the last quarter when new high-technology products were launched, he said.

Manufacturers, however, are still pessimistic about the outlook for the second half of the year. Apple and Samsung have moved their manufacturing lines from mainland coastal areas to inland cities such as Chongqing, Xian, Zhengzhou in Henan and Ordos in Inner Mongolia.

"Hong Kong carriers cannot benefit as much as before as these shipments from the inland cities opt to ship directly to the United States or Europe," said Sunny Ho Lap-kee, the executive director of the Hong Kong Shippers' Council.

Foxconn Technology, the manufacturer of Apple products, is reported to have hired 300,000 workers at its plant in Zhengzhou.

Zhengzhou Airport handled 150,000 tonnes of cargo last year, up nearly 50 per cent on 2011. In April, the State Council approved Zhengzhou's plan to build a second runway and a dedicated runway for freighter services.

Foxconn has relocated 800,000 workers at its plant in Dongguan to other plants across the mainland, leaving only 100,000 in the southern city.

Hong Kong carriers will now face greater competition from rivals for the hi-tech shipments which used to be transported to Hong Kong for shipping overseas.

As other manufacturing plants also have relocated to other cities or countries, air cargo in southern regions, including Hong Kong, had entered a low growth period, said Sunny Yu Ho-yuen, the chairman of ASR Holdings, a logistics company.

In the first six months, Hong Kong airport posted a 2 per cent growth in cargo tonnage to two million tonnes.

Cargo handled by the Shanghai Pudong cargo terminal also saw slower growth of 1.5 per cent in the first half to 604,019 tonnes as the airport faces the same problem as Hong Kong.

Dragonair launches new seasonal service to Siem Reap
Press Release
24 Jul 2013

(Hong Kong) Dragonair today announced that it will launch a new three-times-weekly seasonal service to Siem Reap, the closest gateway to the ancient temples of Angkor, from 29 October 2013 (subject to government approval). The new service will further strengthen the airline’s network in Asia and offer more choice and greater convenience to passengers travelling to and from Cambodia.

Siem Reap will become the 13th destination to have been launched or resumed by Dragonair since April 2012. It will also be the airline’s second destination in Cambodia. Dragonair currently operates scheduled services 10 times every week between Hong Kong and the capital city, Phnom Penh.

The airline will operate the new Siem Reap route using Airbus A320 and A321 aircraft, departing Hong Kong every Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday. In addition to being the closest city to the famous complex of temples centred on Angkor Wat, a UNESCO heritage site, Siem Reap is a popular tourist destination in its own right, charming tourists with a unique blend of Chinese and French architecture and various cultural attractions.

Cambodia is an increasingly popular destination and this latest destination launch will connect passengers from around the world into the burgeoning country. It will also offer more choices and increased convenience for customers travelling out of Cambodia and connecting to Dragonair’s Mainland China network, or the international network of sister airline Cathay Pacific, through the Hong Kong hub.

Dragonair Chief Executive Officer Patrick Yeung said: “We are delighted to add Siem Reap to our ever-expanding network in Asia. Our new service to this increasingly popular tourist destination will further strengthen Hong Kong’s position as one of the world’s leading aviation hubs and further promote tourism and business ties between Hong Kong and Cambodia.”

Cathay sees pick-up in cargo business
31 July 2013
The Standard

Cathay Pacific's (0293) cargo business remains lackluster but the carrier hopes it will improve in the fourth quarter in line with the US economic rebound.

Demand for cargo freight has been low for the past three years and any sign of improvement is eagerly anticipated, said chief executive John Slosar.

But the cargo business could improve in the fourth quarter, driven by strong seasonal demand at Christmas.

If the global economy improves, both cargo and passenger flow will fare better in the second half, he said.

``North America has been recovering and some signs show that Europe may be coming out of the economic downturn. These are certainly good for the aviation industry,'' he said.

Meanwhile, Cathay's passenger flow this summer is similar to that of last year, Slosar said. Its routes to Japanese cities are the most popular.

Separately, the International Air Transport Association said global freight volumes rose 0.8 percent in June from May, down from a 1.2 percent year-on- year upswing in demand.

IATA director general Tony Tyler said it is too early to tell if June was a positive turning point after 18 months of stagnation. ``The global economy remains weak and the basis for the acceleration of air cargo growth in June appears to be fragile,'' he said.

Cathay Pacific shares rose 1.14 percent to HK$14.2 yesterday.

Cathay Pacific enters Latin America market for first time with new freighter service to Guadalajara, Mexico
Press Release
19 Jul 2013

Cathay Pacific Airways announced today that it will launch its first ever destination in Latin America with a new scheduled freighter service to Guadalajara, Mexico in last quarter of 2013, subject to government approval.

With this new service, Cathay Pacific will be the first and only airline operating a freighter service linking Hong Kong and Mexico. The new freighter destination will provide shippers with greater choice and more flexibility when connecting to Cathay Pacific’s international cargo network through its Hong Kong hub.

To cater for the anticipated high volumes of auto parts, electronics, garments and perishables coming out of Mexico’s second largest city, Cathay Pacific will operate the new freighter service to Guadalajara twice-weekly (subject to government approval) using its newest and biggest freighter, the Boeing 747-8F offering more cargo space to meet the growing demand for a wide range of commodities from Latin America and the United States to various points in Asia.

Cathay Pacific Chief Operating Officer Ivan Chu said: “This is the first such freighter service between Hong Kong and Mexico and is a very important step in bringing two such vibrant economies closer together. With growing demand for direct cargo services between Asia and Mexico, our new freighter service will help to establish a very important trade lane between the two regions. At the same time it will help to further strengthen Hong Kong’s position as one of the world’s busiest international airfreight gateways.”

“Air connectivity is a decisive step towards bringing our societies closer to enhance trade, investment and generate all kind of exchanges. This new cargo flight certainly goes along the spirit of a more productive and mutually beneficial Mexico-Hong Kong and Mexico-China relationships that we are experiencing.” said the Secretary of Tourism of Mexico, Claudia Ruiz Massieu, on the occasion of her first official visit to Hong Kong. “I hope the cargo flights are truly successful and look forward to a passenger one in the short run”, she added.

Cathay Pacific currently operates cargo services to 10 destinations in North America and flies to a total of 42 freighter destinations around the world. Previous new additions to its freighter network included Zhengzhou, Hyderabad and Colombo in 2012.

Does anyone know which routes Cathay Pacific has its "New Business Class" flights on? I couldn't find much online. I'm flying to Frankfurt via HK (MEL > HKG > FRA) next year with CX Business Class and I'm hoping I get the "new" version.
