Cathay Pacific Airways, Hong Kong's de facto flag carrier has unveiled June 2003 operating statistics.

The company carried 459 627 passengers in June, equivalent to 15321 a day. The number of flights decreased 38.5% to 1337 and passenger load factor fell 7.2% to 70.3%.

Capacity overall fell 38.7%. Most capacity was decreased in North Asia where it fell 61.2%. Capacity in Europe decreased 35.3% and the Pacific and South Africa and South East Asia and Middle East regions saw a 33.2% and 33% fall in capacity respectively.

RPK fell a massive 44.5% decreasing by 71% in North Asia. European RPK fell 45.2% while South East Asia and Middle East and Pacific and South Africa regions saw a 39.9% and 35.9% fall in RPK respectively.

63 599 000kg of freight was carried - down 13%. Revenue tonne kilometre fell 8.3% and capacity for cargo fell 8.6%. Load factor however increased 0.2% to 74.2% year on year.

"For any airline to carry less than half the number of passengers it did a year ago would, under almost any other circumstances, be utterly devastating," said Cathay Pacific General Manager Revenue Management, Sales and Distribution Ian Shiu.

Well, it is good to see that the economy is rebounding and capacity is being added. I'm sure that SIA was in the same kind of financial shape that CX was in.

Thank you Singapore Air.

The good news is that Cathay plans to be back on a full schedule by the end of September. There are no longer lines of CX aircraft parked on the apron in Hong Kong, and we certainly never had so many aircraft stored that we needed to park them on taxiways.

The passenger numbers are currently almost back to pre-SARS levels, and given a year or so, ticket prices should be back to where they previously were. Cathay was set for major expansion this year, and although SARS has set everyone back, and CX will be more cautious in future (If that was possible), hopefully CX will start expanding it's route network soon.

Here's another awesome stat that I just heard on the radio. In the U.S., 1.8 million people are carried on airliners every day.

“Cathay was set for major expansion this year”

What was planned? Were they going to start services to new destinations or just add flights to existing routes? I would think the latter, as the 3 773s & 3 A333s they ordered a couple of years ago were set to join the fleet at around this time I think. What’s the latest on that?

“hopefully CX will start expanding it's route network soon”

I don’t see that happening until the beginning of next year at the earliest. Probably HKG-JFK-HKG with the A346?

Thanks Cx flyboy!

Hkg82.

Good news to hear. And CX was looking at the B744ER, yes the variant that Qantas is currently operating... but there came SARS... let's hope we'll see some more B744ERS though! Big grin
