Cathay Pacific Releases Traffic Figures For February

10th Apr 2000

Cathay Pacific Airways carried 922,505 passengers in February, bringing the total for the first two months of the year to 1,826,211, a 7.3% rise over to the same period in 1999. Revenue Passenger Kilometres (RPKs) rose by 6% over the first two months, with the strongest growth shown in North Asia with 13.4%, and Europe with 9.9%.

The passenger load factor for the first two months of the year was 73.7%, a rise of 6.9 percentage points over the same period in 1999. Capacity, as measured by Available Seat Kilometres (ASKs), declined by 4% due to the removal of a number of Boeing 747 aircraft from the fleet in 1999.

Cathay Pacific`s General Manager Network Revenue Ian Shiu said: “We saw strong growth in passenger numbers in February as many travellers went away for the Chinese New Year period, particularly to places like Japan and Korea.”
