Cathay Pacific to launch new seasonal service to Barcelona in Summer 2017
Press Release Excerpt
12 Jan 2017

New four-times weekly operation with the Airbus A350 directly links Hong Kong and the capital of Spain’s Catalonia region for the first time; complements current services to Madrid

Cathay Pacific today announced that it will introduce a new four-times weekly seasonal service between Hong Kong and Barcelona from 2 July 2017 (subject to government approval), offering travellers an exciting getaway destination and directly linking two of the world’s most dynamic cities for the very first time.

The seasonal operation, scheduled to operate throughout the peak travel months until 27 October, complements the airline’s existing four-times weekly service to Madrid, meaning Cathay Pacific will soon provide more non-stop flights to Spain from Asia than any other airline.

Cathay Pacific Chief Executive Ivan Chu said: “Barcelona is a great city for its tourism and rich culture that attracts visitors from around the world. We’re excited to offer the first-ever direct link between Hong Kong and Barcelona, which follows the launch of our Madrid service last year. This new summer service reflects our commitment to grow the Cathay Pacific network and offer customers more choice. This further strengthens Hong Kong’s status as one of the world’s most important aviation hubs.”

Renowned for its art, architecture, cuisine and nightlife, Barcelona is home to approximately 1.6 million residents and arguably the world’s most famous and successful football team – FC Barcelona. On the back of robust growth in recent times, this vibrant city, and the wider Catalonia region in general, has also established itself as an important business and transportation hub. Strategically located on the shores of the Mediterranean Sea, and boasting numerous beaches within easy reach of the city centre, over 7.5 million tourists visited Barcelona in 2015, a number that looks set to increase thanks to the introduction of Cathay Pacific’s new service.

Cathay Pacific to increase Toronto service to double daily this summer
Press Release Excerpt
16 Jan 2017

Airline underscores commitment to Canada with frequency boost to the country’s most populous city from 24 June

Cathay Pacific today announced that it will increase the frequency of its summer service to Toronto with the addition of four weekly flights commencing 24 June 2017, underscoring the importance the airline places on the Canadian market.

The announcement, which will see Cathay Pacific operate a twice-daily non-stop service from Hong Kong to Canada’s most populous city, will provide passengers with greater travel options and improved connectivity – and comes on the back of successful summer frequency increases to Toronto by the airline over the past two years.

Since launching flights to Toronto in June 1994, Cathay Pacific has seen growing demand to and from the city, especially during the peak holiday period. In line with the current 10-times-weekly service, the additional flights, which will be operated by Boeing 777-300ER aircraft, will provide passengers with a superior experience across all classes, enabling the airline to live up to its brand promise of a Life Well Travelled.

Cathay Pacific Director Corporate Development & IT Paul Loo said: “Toronto is a growing destination for us, and with summer being a popular period for families to spend important time together, we are delighted to be able to offer our customers with more options and flexibility through these additional services. Cathay Pacific is wholly committed to the Canadian market and we are continually looking at ways in which we can increase our reach within the country.”

The extra services, which will continue until 4 September, will depart from Hong Kong at 1035, arriving in Toronto at 1355 local time the same day; return flights depart Toronto in the afternoon, arriving in Hong Kong the following evening.

South China Morning Post Excerpt
Hong Kong’s Cathay Pacific announces some jobs to go in restructuring exercise
No figures given but airline says it will create new jobs and redefine others
January 18, 2017

Cathay Pacific Airways yesterday said “some jobs will no longer be needed” as it unveiled its plan to turn the business around “for change and success”.

Hong Kong’s flagship airline yesterday confirmed the restructuring exercise, while a union leader said the changes would affect only back-office work.

While some jobs would go, others would be redefined and new ones created, it said, but gave no figures. A source familiar with the current plans said the net effect on the overall number of jobs should be zero.

In outlining a review of the business, Cathay cited changing and increasing customer expectations, rising competition, and an unstable global economy. It said these and other factors “have combined to put huge pressure on our business”. “The competition is here to stay and the uncertainty is ‘the new normal’ – we simply must respond,” it said.

Cathay’s business has deteriorated for three consecutive years, even amid falling jet fuel costs. It posted HK$13 billion in fuel hedging losses over the 18 months to June 30 last year. “We need a leaner, simpler structure that is driven by real insights into our customers and their needs and one that will allow us to respond quickly to change,” a spokeswoman said.

Cathay said 2017 was going to be a year of “significant change”, presenting an opportunity to tackle the “increasingly competitive aviation landscape” head on.

Explaining the rationale for the business review, in an interview published this week in the Post, Cathay chief operating officer Rupert Hogg said his company needed to “become more agile and efficient in dealing with challenges ahead”. He said he was confident it had the right strategy going forward to “survive and thrive”.

Cathay Pacific releases combined traffic figures for December 2016
Press Release Excerpt
18 Jan 2017

Cathay Pacific Airways today released combined Cathay Pacific and Cathay Dragon traffic figures for December 2016 that show an increase in both the number of passengers carried and the volume of cargo and mail uplifted compared to the same month in 2015.

Cathay Pacific and Cathay Dragon carried a total of 2,958,925 passengers last month – an increase of 0.9% compared to December 2015. The passenger load factor remained at 85.0%, while capacity, measured in available seat kilometres (ASKs), grew by 1.3%. For 2016 as a whole, the number of passengers carried rose by 0.8% while capacity increased by 2.4%.

The two airlines carried 174,415 tonnes of cargo and mail last month, an increase of 9.9% compared to December 2015. The cargo and mail load factor rose by 1.6 percentage points to 69.5%. Capacity, measured in available cargo/mail tonne kilometres, was up by 3.6% while cargo and mail revenue tonne kilometres (RTKs) increased by 6.1%. For 2016 as a whole, tonnage rose by 3.1% against a capacity increase of 0.6% and a 0.8% rise in RTKs.

Cathay Pacific General Manager Revenue Management Patricia Hwang said: “Overall passenger growth was in line with capacity as the Christmas peak got underway in December. Outbound traffic from Hong Kong was robust over the holiday period. Traffic to Europe rebounded from a low base, which was due to the security concerns of a year ago. Our new operations to Madrid and Gatwick strengthened our network coverage in Europe and the UK. Helped by the weakened yen, Japan also proved a popular leisure destination over the holiday period. While we managed to grow passenger volume, yield continues to come under pressure due to excess capacity in the market.”

Cathay Pacific Cargo and Lufthansa Cargo now under one roof for Frankfurt ground handling
Press Release Excerpt
24 Jan 2017

Cathay Pacific Cargo is relocating its local cargo handling activities in Frankfurt to the Lufthansa Cargo terminal as part of the cooperation agreement between the two airlines

The relocation of Cathay Pacific Cargo's freight handling into the Lufthansa Cargo Center (LCC) in Frankfurt is a core element of the Joint Business Agreement (JBA) that was announced in May 2016 between Cathay Pacific Cargo and Lufthansa Cargo. The merging of freight handling for imports and exports was concluded on 17 January 2017 and customers of both airlines will benefit.

As part of the cooperation agreement, both airlines are closely working together on network planning and sales as well as IT and service expansion. Both partners plan to transport the first joint shipment on 1 February 2017 – initially from Hong Kong to Europe. The ability to also book eastbound shipments from Europe to Hong Kong will then follow in 2018.

Simon Large, Director Cargo at Cathay Pacific, comments: “Cathay Pacific Cargo’s move into the Lufthansa Cargo Center is another important step in furthering our collaboration. In addition to providing more direct connections and greater flexibility, we can now offer our customers in Frankfurt the same handling standards that will lead to more efficiency and time savings.”

“We are excited to have reached a further milestone within the partnership, sharing the freight handling station in Frankfurt. This means our customers at the Frankfurt site are now benefiting from the advantages of our cooperation,” explains Peter Gerber, CEO of Lufthansa Cargo.

South China Morning Post Excerpt
Cathay to go green by using biofuels
January 30, 2017

Cathay Pacific Airways has pledged an 80 per cent cut in the amount of climate-changing gases some of its longest flights pump into the Earth’s atmosphere, by betting big on biofuels.

The Hong Kong carrier will be one of the first airlines in the world to switch to cleaner jet fuels on an industrial scale.

The city is slowly strengthening its push to lessen its contribution to climate change, and the government aims to cut annual carbon emissions per person almost in half by 2030.

The aviation sector had avoided regulation until last year, when its governing body, the International Civil Aviation Organisation, agreed a global deal to curb emissions growth by the end of the decade.

Cathay Pacific planes will use fuel made from landfill rubbish. Many of its flights from the United States, where the fuel is being produced, will be able to fly to Hong Kong using a half-half mix of biofuel and conventional fuel by 2019. It is on these trans-Pacific flights that the company expects the 80 per cent emissions reductions.

“Aviation biofuels will play a key role for Cathay and the aviation industry’s quest for lower emissions,” the airline’s biofuel manager, Jeff Ovens, said. “We are on the cusp of large-scale production of low-carbon jet fuel and are eager to use it.”

The high and notoriously unpredictable cost of fuel has forced the airline to control how much it uses. By – among other things – reducing aircraft weight, flying on more direct flight paths and only using one engine to taxi on runways, the company cut emissions and paved the way for the rethink of how it could further cut pollution.

“This is where biofuels come in,” Ovens said. “These fuels will have a lower carbon footprint than fossil fuels, and the pricing we have is competitive with traditional fuels.”

Aside from the carbon dioxide reduction, using the mixed fuel avoids emissions of other harmful gases, like methane, given off as rubbish – which will instead be used as fuel – naturally degrades in landfill.

Cathay Pacific releases combined traffic figures for January 2017
15 Feb 2017
Press Release Excerpt

Cathay Pacific Airways today released combined Cathay Pacific and Cathay Dragon traffic figures for January 2017 that show an increase in both the number of passengers carried and the volume of cargo and mail uplifted compared to the same month in 2016.

Cathay Pacific and Cathay Dragon carried a total of 2,966,845 passengers last month – an increase of 2.4% compared to January 2016. The passenger load factor increased to 86.5%, while capacity, measured in available seat kilometres (ASKs), grew by 1.3%.

The two airline s carried 151,133 tonnes of cargo and mail last month, an increase of 2.3% compared to January 2016. The cargo and mail load factor rose by 0.3 percentage points to 61.9%. Capacity, measured in available cargo/mail tonne kilometres, was up by 0.5% while cargo and mail revenue tonne kilometres (RTKs) increased by 1%.

Cathay Pacific General Manager Revenue Management Patricia Hwang said: “Helped by strong return traffic following the Christmas and New Year holidays, our business began positively in January with a healthy growth in passenger volumes. Our short-haul routes were buoyed by pre-Chinese New Year demand and we operated additional flights to cater for the holiday demand. Northeast Asia routes, particularly Sapporo in Japan, performed well. However, given the earlier-than-normal start to the lunar holiday, year-on-year comparison figures are subject to distortion. Yield continues to come under considerable pressure due to intense competition and adverse currency movements. We announced the launch of a seasonal service to Barcelona this summer, which we expect will prove popular with the travelling public.”

Cathay worker bleeds to death
Feb. 20, 2017
The Standard Excerpt

A newly wed Cathay Pacific Services worker bled to death yesterday after his leg got pinned by two dollies at the airport.

At around 5am Chung Cheuk-lam, 30, who was responsible for driving a tractor and helping load cargo planes, was disconnecting two dollies at the south apron when another tractor crashed into one of the dollies, slamming it into the other.

Chung's right leg got pinned between the dollies and it bled profusely apparently after an artery was cut.

Firemen arrived and sent Chung to Princess Margaret Hospital, where he was declared dead at 6.18am.

A colleague of Chung said each tractor was usually connected to six dollies. But since Chung only needed four, he was disconnecting two.

The driver of the other tractor, surnamed Chan, was arrested for dangerous driving causing death after being sent to North Lantau Hospital for feeling sick. Chan, 41, who said he was also grieving the death of his friend, was still being questioned as of last night.

Chung's father speculated that his son, who got married two months ago, died after rescue delays, adding it was unimaginable that a leg injury would be fatal. He also questioned why his son was not sent to North Lantau Hospital, which was closer to the airport.

"It was only bleeding. They were not in the wild but at the airport," he said. "Everything should be the fastest and the best in Hong Kong. How come he suffered from excessive bleeding?"

Chung's cousin, who helped him get the job a year ago, said the incident might have involved negligence. He also said the long working hours and overtime work affected body conditions.

Cathay Pacific and Air New Zealand extend services between Hong Kong and New Zealand
Press Release Excerpt
28 Feb 2017

Cathay Pacific announces first direct link between Hong Kong and Christchurch, providing customers with a Life Well Travelled experience

Cathay Pacific will introduce a new seasonal service between Hong Kong and Christchurch from December 2017, directly linking the two cities by air for the first time and complementing the airline’s existing services to Auckland.

The non-stop Christchurch service will operate three times per week, departing Hong Kong on Wednesdays, Fridays and Sundays using technologically-advanced Airbus A350 aircraft, highlighting the airline’s commitment to New Zealand, a country it has served since 1983, and providing a welcome boost for tourism to Canterbury and the South Island.

Subject to regulatory approvals, the new service will operate between 1 December 2017 and 28 February 2018 and will complement Cathay Pacific’s current seasonal double daily flights to Auckland as well as strategic partner Air New Zealand’s daily service between Hong Kong and Auckland.

Cathay Pacific Director Corporate Development and IT Paul Loo said the new Christchurch service will meet customer demand for travel to New Zealand throughout the southern hemisphere’s peak summer months, as well as provide a convenient option for South Island-based travellers looking to fly on Cathay Pacific to Asia and beyond via the Hong Kong hub.

“We are an airline that puts the needs of our customers at the heart of every decision we make. Christchurch, and indeed the South Island as a whole, is a magnificent part of the world, so we are really excited to be able to connect this new and breathtaking destination direct with our Hong Kong home,” said Mr Loo.

Cathay Pacific and Air New Zealand will also extend their strategic alliance partnership on services between Hong Kong and New Zealand for a further five years until 2022, subject to continuing regulatory approvals.

Cathay Pacific increases frequencies to key destinations across three continents
Press Release Excerpt
9 Mar 2017

Cathay Pacific today announced that it will be increasing the frequency of services to some of its most popular destinations across three continents in order to meet growing customer demand. The enhanced schedules – which apply to San Francisco, Brisbane, Manchester, Paris and Madrid – will provide business and leisure travellers with more choice and greater flexibility in planning their trips, while at the same time strengthening Hong Kong’s position as Asia’s leading aviation hub.

North America

As part of a redeployment of resources in response to strong demand, San Francisco will be served three times a day following the addition of four flights to its weekly schedule from the end of October 2017. This new daily service will be operated by the Airbus A350, making the West Coast city the first destination in the US to welcome Cathay Pacific’s technologically-advanced aircraft.

At the same time, flights to Los Angeles will be reduced from 28 to 21 per week. These changes come on top of previously announced additional services that will operate to Vancouver and Boston from late March.

Australia

In response to the growing demand for business and leisure travel to Australia, Cathay Pacific is enhancing its customer offering to the country through increased capacity and more non-stop services.

During the southern hemisphere’s peak summer period from late October to March, the airline will replace its current four-times weekly one-stop service to Brisbane via Cairns with direct flights to both cities. The switch means that Queensland’s capital will receive 11 non-stop flights from Hong Kong each week, while Cairns will be served non-stop three times a week.

In addition to the new non-stop services, Brisbane’s existing daily flight will be served by the A350 from 26 March. Cathay Pacific also recently announced that from late October, it will increase capacity on its four-times daily Sydney route by operating a third flight with the Boeing 777-300ER.

Europe

Cathay Pacific has expanded its European network considerably in recent times and the region is set to become better connected than ever before with frequency increases to France, Spain and the United Kingdom.

Madrid will see an increase from four to five flights per week from late October, while a sixth weekly flight will operate to Manchester from early December. At the same time, Paris will see the resumption of an 11th weekly service.

Cathay Plans 30% Staff Cost Cuts at Head Office Under Reform
March 17, 2017
Bloomberg Excerpt

Cathay Pacific Airways Ltd. set a target to save 30 percent in employee costs at its Hong Kong head office as part of the biggest revamp in two decades, amid mounting competition that caused the carrier to post its first annual loss in eight years.

The savings will come from changes to middle to senior management that will be announced by June, Asia’s biggest international carrier said in an emailed statement Friday. A transition to the new structure will occur over the summer, Cathay said.

“It is clear that there is a need for an organizational structure that will allow the Cathay Pacific Group to succeed,” the airline said. “We need a leaner, simpler structure that is driven by real insights into our customers and their needs, one that will allow us to respond quickly to change.”

The statement sheds more light on a “critical review” Cathay announced five months ago. The airline has been discounting its premium offerings in a bid to fill seats as it competes against airlines such as China Eastern Airlines Corp., weighing on passenger yields. It has kicked off a three-year “transformation program” to revive earnings, and has said changes would “start at the top.” The marquee carrier expects the operating environment in 2017 to remain challenging.

“It’s a wonderful opportunity for them to look at what is happening now, not just the numbers but look at the structural issues and make a clean break from the old days,” Shukor Yusof, founder of Endau Analytics, an aviation consulting firm in Malaysia, said by phone. “This year is going to be the threshold for them, and if they don’t do anything by the end of this year, they’re going find themselves a lot deeper in trouble.”
