Press: Cathay in row over future capacity

27th Jul 2007

Cathay Pacific Airways denied claims by rival Hong Kong Airlines that it failed to invest enough in new planes, saying it will add an average of 10 wide-body aircraft annually over the next five years. Hong Kong Airlines chairman Ren Weidong had said that Cathay Pacific and its unit Dragonair did not order enough aircraft or cover enough destinations in the region to maintain Hong Kong’s role as an air hub.

Mr Ren also criticised Cathay for not ordering a single plane at the Paris air show last month when other Asian competitors were making huge orders.
