Cathay Pacific 75th Anniversary

75 years of bringing people together

For three-quarters of a century, we’ve created meaningful human connections. Now we’re creating them for the future.

Connecting the world – and its people

Over the past 75 years we have grown from a small regional airline to one that spans the globe from Hong Kong – our energetic, ever-changing home. Throughout it all, our enduring purpose has been to connect you to the people, places and experiences you love the most.  

This milestone is a chance to pay homage to history, celebrate the power of connection, and look forward to a re-energised future.  

Upcycling the past for the future

Our special memorabilia celebrates our heritage and the future alike, upcycling items from our past to forge something new, environmentally conscious and unique. 

Here’s how we gave our treasured past a vibrant future.

Own a piece of history

Explore our range of limited-edition merchandise, created especially for this anniversary. Aluminium reclaimed from B-HUJ, our record-breaking, final Boeing 747-400 plane, has been moulded into sleek pen and cardholder sets. Aviation tags have been crafted from B-HND, our loyal Boeing 777-200. And pre-loved cabin and cockpit crew uniforms have been revamped by Hong Kong lifestyle brand G.O.D. into stylish accessories, teddy bears and more. 


We’ve also created a selection of special 75th anniversary collector’s aircraft models, spanning each era of Cathay Pacific. And for a modern twist on history, we’ve collaborated with LAIBA to design cocktails exclusively available in Hong Kong, inspired by four of the routes that helped put Cathay Pacific on the map.  

Dine in First class style at Salisterra

We created an exclusive celebration menu in collaboration with Salisterra at The Upper House and offered the quintessential First class experience – starring our signature Imperial caviar and signature tableware – paired with Krug Champagne and Château Lynch-Bages 2008 Pauillac from our legendary cellar.

Our past, present and future

75 years of connections

The excitement at the start of every new adventure; the calm surrounding a busy business trip; the forging of new paths at school or university; the joy of knowing you’re on the way home. Cathay Pacific means something to all of us.  


We’re celebrating 75 years of making memories by asking our customers to share the experiences and connections that have shaped their lives.
