Cathay Pacific still faces significant economic and political hurdles before being able to fly Chinese routes the SCMP reported.

The biggest problem would be the impact on Air China, China Eastern Airlines and China Southern Airlines.

"Even forgetting about the political aspects for a moment, allowing Cathay to fly into China would be to reintroduce direct... competition at a time when we are trying to do exactly the opposite," a CAAC source said.

"Cathay has applied for three destination rights to fly to Beijing, Shanghai and Xiamen," an information officer from the Economic Development and Labor Bureau said.

"First of all, they need to get approval, then they'll have to get frequencies. At the moment, all the frequencies are fully utilized, so (the Chinese government) will have to increase frequencies as well," said an ING Barings analyst.

"But of course, Dragonair would have expected this to happen," said a spokeswoman for Hong Kong's de Facto flag carrier.. "It would be naive for Dragonair to believe Cathay would hand over its Taiwan routes and not be challenged (in the mainland.)"

Makes me laugh that you can't possibly differentiate Hong Kong from China in the eyes of the Chinese but the CAAC spokesman won't let them fly into 'China'. Seems rather an odd situation does it not? For CX, I'd imagine its a huge blow to be cut out of what will probably be the biggest growing travel country.
