Cathay Pacific hits new milestone with 1 million passengers
In January, Cathay Pacific had over 1 million passengers, surpassing this number for the first time since the epidemic began.
This was a significant year-on-year increase of 40 times and a 28% increase from the previous month, with an average of more than 33,000 passengers per day.
However, the cargo volume decreased by 10% from the previous month but increased by 28% year-on-year.
The airline revealed that flights to Japan, Bangkok, and Singapore were in high demand during the Lunar New Year, but some had to be canceled due to Japanese authorities’ flight restrictions.
Cathay Pacific plans to increase passenger flights in the coming months to prepare for the Easter holiday peak season, with over 100 flights per week to and from 14 cities in mainland China by the end of the month.
