Cathay Pacific’s statement on CAD’s preliminary report on CX780 emergency landing
06 May 2010
Cathay Pacific Airways today received a copy of the Civil Aviation Department’s Preliminary Report on its investigations into the emergency landing of flight CX780 at Hong Kong International Airport on 13 April 2010.
The report's account of the incident is consistent with our understanding of the sequence of events leading to the landing.
We will continue to cooperate fully with the CAD in its ongoing investigations.
We look forward to the final report which we believe will determine the cause of the emergency. This will enable us to ensure that all necessary steps are taken to avoid a recurrence of such an incident.
As the investigation is still continuing, it would be inappropriate to offer any further comment at this stage.
