Cathay Dragon to modernise and expand its fleet after signing a memorandum of understanding for single-aisle aircraft
Press Release Excerpt
21 Aug 2017

32 fuel-efficient, environmentally-friendly Airbus A321neo aircraft to arrive from 2020 as the regional airline continues to grow

Cathay Dragon has signed a memorandum of understanding (MOU), preparatory to executing formal legal documentation, for the acquisition of 32 Airbus A321neo aircraft. The MOU, signed today between the Cathay Pacific Group and Airbus in Toulouse, France, is valued at approximately HK$31.7 billion at current list prices. It is intended to see Cathay Dragon’s single-aisle fleet replaced and expanded from 2020.

The new aircraft, which are scheduled to be delivered between 2020 and 2023, are intended to replace Cathay Dragon’s existing single-aisle fleet of 23 aircraft, comprising 15 Airbus A320s and eight Airbus A321s. The airline, which also operates 24 wide-body Airbus A330s, serves 56 destinations in Asia, including 28 cities in mainland China.

Cathay Pacific Chief Executive Officer and Cathay Dragon Chairman Rupert Hogg said: “Cathay Dragon is committed to providing customers with a superior travel experience while at the same time enhancing the efficiency of its operations. We look forward to introducing the aircraft into our fleet and expanding the reach of the Cathay Pacific Group to more customers.

“The intention to purchase these 32 environmentally-friendly aircraft will allow us to add new destinations to Cathay Dragon’s network. We also intend to increase frequencies on some of our most popular routes in order to provide our customers with more travel choices and convenience. Having focused on modernising and expanding Cathay Pacific’s long-haul fleet in recent times, this is an exciting new chapter for Cathay Dragon following last year’s rebranding to enhance a seamless travel experience for our customers.

“The substantial investment we are making in new aircraft underlines our confidence in the future of the Cathay Pacific Group, as well as our commitment to bolstering Hong Kong’s position as Asia’s largest international aviation hub as we bring new connectivity to and from our home.”

Rumour has it that they're pushing all PEK flights to KA.

No. Dragonair / Cathay Dragon is a full-service carrier and not a LCC. It primarily serves regional destinations and has a strong brand recognition in China.

Cathay Pacific to launch non-stop services to Brussels, Dublin and Copenhagen in Summer 2018
Press Release Excerpt
31 Aug 2017

New direct links to three of Europe’s most exciting capitals brings unrivalled connectivity to Hong Kong

Providing unmatched convenience


Cathay Pacific continues to grow Hong Kong’s connections to the world. From Summer 2018, the airline will launch pioneering non-stop routes linking Hong Kong with Brussels, Dublin and Copenhagen, further strengthening the airline’s network and providing new trade and tourism opportunities between Asia and Europe.

Cathay Pacific Chief Executive Officer Rupert Hogg said that the announced services will meet customer demand for non-stop travel to these vibrant cities, while at the same time providing Europe-based passengers with more convenient access to key destinations in Asia and Southwest Pacific through the airline’s home in Hong Kong.

“We’re excited to offer the only direct flights between Hong Kong and Brussels, Dublin and Copenhagen. These are all fantastic destinations and attract business and leisure travellers from the world over. We listened to our customers’ demands for more options and greater flexibility and have responded by building direct air links with these great cities,” said Mr Hogg.

“Growing our reach to new destinations that aren’t served from Hong Kong boosts the city’s status as Asia’s largest international hub and enables us to capture new and important sources of revenue.”

Following the recent launch of services to Gatwick, Madrid and Barcelona, Cathay Pacific’s European expansion continues. With the commencement of the new routes, the airline’s network will cover 15 European destinations served direct from Hong Kong.

Their hand is being forced by Hainan who are also looking at launching those cities non stop from Beijing or Shanghai in addition to Beijing.

The Dublin service will be a 4 weekly one initially and is the first ever non stop Asian service from Dublin...unless Hainan launch theirs before June.

Dublin has a very short runway for such a long flight and the new runway there is still at least a year away after service launch.

Pilot pay and pensions targeted as Cathay Pacific looks to slash HK$1 billion in costs
Memo discloses almost half of company’s HK$19.7 billion spending on staff costs last year was on pilots – who represent 14.6 per cent of the workforce
September 6, 2017
South China Morning Post Excerpt

Cathay Pacific is urging its pilots to accept pay freezes and changes in pension benefits to help Hong Kong’s flagship airline slash HK$1 billion (US$128 million) in costs amid an ongoing restructuring of the business.

An internal memo, released on Tuesday, revealed that almost half of the company’s HK$19.7 billion spending on staff costs last year was on pilots, who represent 14.6 per cent of the 26,670-strong workforce.

The memo said Cathay was seeking a 10 per cent reduction target by 2019 through a pay freeze, unspecified pension “changes” and productivity improvements.

Anna Thompson, the airline’s director of flight operations, warned the current costs were “too high”.

“To turn this company around, it is clear that we need to reduce our cost base quickly and by a significant amount and also make productivity gains,” Thompson, who sits on the airline’s management board, said.

Cathay Pacific releases combined traffic figures for August 2017
Press Release Excerpt
18 Sep 2017

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

Cathay Pacific and Cathay Dragon carried a total of 3,079,949 passengers last month – an increase of 3.5% compared to August 2016. The passenger load factor dropped 0.5 percentage points to 86.3%, while capacity, measured in available seat kilometres (ASKs), increased by 4.8%. In the first eight months of 2017, the number of passenger carried increased by 0.3% while capacity rose by 2.0%.

The two airline s carried 172,253 tonnes of cargo and mail last month, an increase of 12.0% compared to the same month last year. The cargo and mail load factor rose by 2.2 percentage points to 65.5%. Capacity, measured in available cargo/mail tonne kilometres, was up by 7.5% while cargo and mail revenue tonne kilometres (RTKs) increased by 11.3%. In the first eight months of 2017, the tonnage rose by 11.9% against a 3.3% increase in capacity and a 9.5% increase in RTKs.

Cathay Pacific Director Commercial and Cargo Ronald Lam said: “We recorded modest revenue growth in August, despite our operations being disrupted by numerous typhoons in the region, including at our home hub in Hong Kong. The additional capacity we deployed on our European routes enabled strong volume growth during the summer peak, while premium class demand across the network in general remained robust.

Cathay Pacific increases services to Barcelona, Tel Aviv and Fukuoka
Press Release Excerpt
28 Sep 2017

Airline to operate the most non-stop flights to Spain from Asia with launch of year-round service to Barcelona, while popular Japanese and Israeli hotspots set to receive additional frequencies

Boosting Barcelona


Cathay Pacific today announced that its seasonal operation to Barcelona during the summer peak will become a year-round service from 15 April 2018. Starting with three weekly services from Hong Kong, it will become a four-times-weekly service from 1 July 2018.

The new flights, which will be operated by the technologically-advanced Airbus A350-900, will complement Cathay Pacific’s existing four-times weekly service to Madrid (which increases to five times a week from 29 October 2017), meaning the airline will provide more non-stop flights to Spain from Asia than any other carrier.

Cathay Pacific Director Commercial and Cargo Ronald Lam explained that the popularity of the seasonal route, which commenced on 2 July and is scheduled until 28 October 2017, was pivotal in the decision to make Barcelona a year-round destination.

“Our customers will benefit from more options and greater flexibility through our network expansion and increased frequencies,” said Mr Lam. “We’re delighted to soon be serving the great city of Barcelona throughout the year.

“Demand on the route has exceeded expectations and customer feedback has been overwhelmingly positive. Growing our reach to destinations not otherwise served from Hong Kong enables us to capture new sources of revenue and solidifies the city’s status as Asia’s largest international hub.”

Tel Aviv to go daily

Customer demand and satisfaction for Cathay Pacific’s services between Hong Kong and Tel Aviv are also reasons behind the airline’s decision to announce additional frequencies between the two cities from next summer.

Launched in March 2017 as a four-times-weekly operation, the Airbus A350-900-operated route will be served six times a week from 25 March 2018, increasing to daily throughout October and November.

Cathay Pacific spreads wings to Guam
Pacific Daily News Excerpt
Sept. 25, 2017

Hong Kong's flag carrier, Cathay Pacific Airways, is the latest airline to enter Guam, starting with a November charter flight. Regular flights to the island could follow in the months ahead.

The possible entrance of a new air carrier comes at a time when the island will lose nearly 200,000 airline seats as a result of Delta Air Lines' decision to leave the market.

Cathay Pacific announced a Nov. 19 to 23 Hong Kong-Guam charter flight, which it advertises as a five-star package.

"Yes, the Cathay Pacific charter they have planned for November 2017 is exciting news for Guam," said Rolenda L. Faasuamalie, marketing administrator for the A.B. Won Pat International Airport Authority.

Cathay Pacific's first charter flight to Guam will use an A320 aircraft, with a capacity of 164 seats, Faasuamalie said.

The charter flight, however, is just the beginning of Cathay Pacific's services to Guam.

The Guam airport has had discussions with Cathay Pacific's network planners, who said they are looking into maximizing the use of their aircraft and see prospects for the five-hour flight to Guam from Hong Kong, Faasuamalie said.

Faasuamalie said Cathay Pacific, in January 2017, applied for a U.S. Department of Transportation authority to conduct scheduled foreign air transport of people, property and mail.
