Air New Zealand and Cathay Pacific welcome the decision today by the Minister of Transport Hon Simon Bridges to re-authorise the airlines’ strategic agreement on the Auckland – Hong Kong route until 31 October 2019.

The strategic agreement has been operating since January 2013 and has already delivered a range of benefits to customers travelling between New Zealand and Hong Kong including the choice of up to three frequencies per day, reciprocal frequent flyer benefits and enhanced connectivity to and from both carriers’ networks.

Change for Good raises HK$11.3 million in 2014 to help deprived children worldwide
Press Release Excerpt
26 Aug 2015

Cathay Pacific Airways and the Hong Kong Committee for UNICEF (UNICEF HK) today announced that a total of HK$11.3 million was donated by passengers to the Change for Good inflight fundraising programme in 2014. Since the launch of the programme in Hong Kong, Change for Good has been successful in converting spare coins and notes into life-saving materials and services to improve the lives of vulnerable children worldwide, including those threatened by Ebola in West Africa, malnutrition in Cambodia, and exploitation in Vietnam.

Cathay Pacific Chief Executive Ivan Chu said: “Cathay Pacific and UNICEF HK have enjoyed a long and successful partnership. Over the past 24 years, more than HK$155 million has been collected through the Change for Good programme. We would like to express our sincere gratitude to our passengers for their generous contributions and to our staff for their ongoing support. As an international airline, we are pleased with our involvement in this meaningful programme, which supports UNICEF’s work to help underprivileged children around the world.”

The programme has received continued support from passengers travelling across Cathay Pacific’s global network. The majority of the donations in 2014 were given in Hong Kong dollars, US dollars, Taiwanese dollars, Japanese yen and renminbi, although more than 30 different currencies - including the Sri Lankan rupee, Jordanian dinar and Mongolian tugrik – were collected in total, highlighting the truly international nature of Change for Good.

Bomb scare causes delay, 2 int'l flights called back
6 September 2015
The Times of India Excerpt

Panic gripped passengers and officials at Indira Gandhi International Airport in the wee hours of Saturday after an unidentified caller claimed there were bombs on three international flights. The call that turned out to be hoax delayed the flight operations by four hours. According to airport officials, a similar prank call was received at the Bengaluru airport around the same time. The matter came to light around 1.10am when a call was received at the Gurgaon office of the airport operator, Delhi International Airport Limited (DIAL). The message was then conveyed to CISF officers at the airport who, in turn, informed Delhi Police. "We received a call around 1am from CISF about bomb threats on three international flights, including two Delhi to Hong Kong flights--CX694, a Cathay Pacific that departed at its scheduled time 1.13am and another 9W078, a Jet Airways flight that flew at 1.05am.

Both the flights were air-borne when the threat was received and had to be called back immediately .

*******************************************************

The luggage and cargo were scanned to detect any objectionable element, but nothing was found. After 4-5 hours, the two flights to Hong Kong were declared safe and they took off.

On a learning curve
7 September 2015
China Daily Excerpt

Only the second chief executive of Chinese origin in the entire seven-decade history of Cathay Pacific, an airline with a British backdrop since its very early days, Ivan Chu Kwok-leung is not very fond of people calling him a "Chinese CEO".

"I do not think myself as a Chinese CEO. I consider myself a CEO who happens to be Chinese," he said.

Leading a company with more than 33,000 employees representing 50 nationalities worldwide, and one that appointed a woman to the post of director of flight operations (Anna Thompson) on April 10 this year, Chu said diversity is the strength of Cathay Pacific.

"When it comes to promotions, we always focus on one issue, which is merit. The best person shall get the job," he said.

And yet, Chu told China Daily that working with people is what one needs to learn, particularly in a company employing multiple nationalities.

"Working hard is a prerequisite for any and every successful business. But it's not just about working hard," Chu said. "I've seen on different levels - even with some very senior persons - people sometimes have very big egos and don't work well with others. That limits career (growth).

"The capability to work with people of different nationalities, backgrounds and languages is critical. It's easier in good times. But when there is pressure and difference of opinion, I've seen people don't know how to handle it. I think everyone should focus on the common good and try to manage the differences."

Chu always reminds himself to keep learning. "I see management as a self-perfecting process," he said. "Many young people graduate from university and stop learning. That's how people grow old. But as a 70-year-old organization, we are still young and innovative. To stay sharp, we have to continue to ask ourselves those questions: how can we do better than before? How can we do better than our competitors?

"What worries me a lot about our organization is that we cannot get into premature aging - the past is always the best and we just do what was successful before. Then some disruption comes and we will be dead like a dinosaur.

"If you'd like to be forever young, you need to continue to grow and learn," Chu asserted.

That unpainted tail again suggests the introduction of a new livery for Cathay. Can't wait wait for its unveiling.

Cathay admits ‘increased workload’ for tired pilots
24 September 2015
South China Morning Post Excerpt

Cathay Pacific management has admitted an “increased workload” and “decrease in rostering stability” among its pilots for the first time, after about 100 senior cockpit crew members warned in an angry letter that fatigue was putting aviation safety at risk.

In an internal letter sent to all pilots on Tuesday, the airline said it was determined to tackle issues raised by the pilots. It also said the airline’s general manager of flying was leading a working group to improve rostering patterns, and investigate and propose solutions to the problem of fatigue. The working group would make its first report in November.

The original letter, signed by 100 check and training captains, warned Cathay executives that flight safety was under threat as exhausted aircrews coped with escalating workloads.

Anna Thompson, the airline’s director of flight operations who was the recipient of the letter issued about two weeks ago, responded for the first time and recognised issues in flight operations had resulted in exhausted crews. “I am very aware that our recent expansion has led to an increased workload for many of our staff and crew,” she wrote.

“I am also aware that the combination of increased tasks and a higher number of short-term changes has led to a decrease in roster stability, particularly on the freighter fleet.”

Thompson wrote she was committed to tackling the issues and was confident “the safety of our operations will continue to be supported” by frontline staff members, including pilots.

“Assessing both roster stability and potential fatigue is the first step. Our airline has grown quickly, making the analysis of the problem extremely complex,” she wrote.

A Cathay pilot who asked not to be named was not satisfied with Thompson’s letter.

“The shortage of crew has been going on for a long time,” the pilot said. “Not only has it [the airline] not handled the problem, it has terminated the rostering practices agreement recently.”

The pilot said aircrews suffered from fatigue issues after the agreement was terminated.

Cathay Pacific flight from Perth to Hong Kong suffers engine fire
Sydney Morning Herald Excerpt
September 25, 2015

A Perth man has described the shock and panic of seeing flames coming from an engine outside his plane window on a Cathay Pacific flight that made an emergency landing in Bali on Friday morning.

Perth performer Joel Sirna was on the CX170 red-eye to Hong Kong early Friday when he heard a loud bang and felt the plane begin to shake, he told Radio 6PR.

"All the lights went out, I looked to the window and we could see flames and sparks by the wing and the motor was on fire," he said.

"A lot of people were asleep and got woken up. A lot of people were pretty shaken.

"It was a scary sight... there were a few screams.

"A few of us had no time to react, we just had to snap into it and look after the ones next to us, the girl next to me started freaking out, crying.

"Then they announced over the radio they had lost power to one of the engines ... we were doing an emergency landing in Bali."

Mr Sirna had time to check his personal inflight screen to see where the aircraft was and that it appeared to be close to Bali before its power cut out.

"It felt like a long time from the moment of the bang and the plane shake and the losing power and the flames, it was a scary sight, I reckon it would have gone from probably a good few minutes," he said.

"Eventually the flames went out and staff were running up and down the aisle with their torches trying to get everyone sorted.

"A lot of people were thinking [it was going to be all right] but then obviously there were those were who weren't, and were shaking and crying."

Cathay Pacific said in a statement that CX170, which left Perth around midnight, made an emergency landing at Denpasar Airport in Bali because of a "No 2 engine defect".

"The engine was shut down and an emergency landing was declared," the spokesperson said.

"The aircraft landed safely ... fire services met the aircraft on arrival.

"The flight was operated by an A330 with 251 passengers on board."

Not per their schedule, although they did rotate on some long-hauls recently as equipment substitution.

Number of pilots for Hong Kong's Cathay Pacific reporting flying with fatigue up 38pc
Figures show number reporting exhaustion has risen 38 per cent, after 100 pilots submit letter saying rising workloads had put safety at risk
South China Morning Post Excerpt
11 October 2015

Figures obtained by the Sunday Morning Post show a sharp rise last year in the number of Cathay Pacific pilots reporting to the airline they were suffering from fatigue while flying.

Almost 1,100 reports of fatigue were received by the company last year - up 38 per cent compared to 2013. Nearly 3,500 cases have been submitted since monitoring started four years ago, according to the airline's sustainable development report.

Cathay Pacific attributed the increase to pilots being more aware of fatigue symptoms, while the company has made it easier for aircrew to submit reports about exhaustion.

The airline insisted safety was its top priority after the Post revealed pilots' concerns over aviation safety three weeks ago, increasing pressure on the airline to reform its cockpit culture.

A letter signed by 100 check and training captains warned company bosses that flight safety was under threat as exhausted aircrews coped with escalating workloads. The airline's management later conceded there had been an "increased workload" and "decrease in rostering stability" among its pilots, leading to exhaustion among aircrew.
