Cathay Pacific releases May traffic figures

10 Jul 2000


Cathay Pacific Airways carried 967,783 passengers in May, bringing the total for the first five months of the year to 4.78 million. This represents an increase of 11% over the same period in 1999. The airline carried a total of 61,250 tonnes of cargo in the month, meaning there has been a 12.4% increase for the year-to-date.

During May, Cathay Pacific operated 2,034 flights, up from 1,988 flights in April, as the airline added frequencies across its network. For the first five months, the airline had operated 3% more flights than the same period in 1999.

Cathay Pacific's Director Sales & Marketing James Barrington said: "The encouraging growth we saw through the start of the year continued in May. Even though total passenger numbers slowed a little from April's record levels, we still saw high load factors and across almost all of our routes."
