Cathay Pacific Airways today announced that it is proud to be the title sponsor of the Cathay Pacific International Chinese New Year Night Parade in the Year of Rooster. On 9 February 2005, the first day of the Lunar New Year, the Cathay Pacific float will lead 11 local and international floats accompanied by 29 performance groups from around the world to usher in the Year of Rooster. The parade will take off from the Tamar Site and ply along Convention Avenue and Harbour Road before returning to the Tamar Site.
This year, the airline float takes on the theme of “Flying from Hong Kong our home to the world”. As Hong Kong’s home carrier, Cathay Pacific works hard to connect Hong Kong to the world and strengthen the city as a global aviation hub. The float incorporates a Cathay Pacific aircraft, a globe, landmark Hong Kong buildings and Hong Kong International Airport, signifying the airline’s effort to connect Hong Kong to the world and strengthen the city as the global aviation hub.
