Cathay Pacific releases December traffic figures

19 Jan 2001


Cathay Pacific Airways carried more than one million passengers in December - the highest in five months - ending 2000 on a strong note. This increased the total number of passengers carried by the airline during 2000 to 11.9 million, the highest number in its history. In 1999, the airline carried 10.5 million.

In December Cathay Pacific also transported 65,203 tonnes of cargo and mail. This was down slightly from the 72,266 tonnes carried in November, reflecting the general slowdown typical of the Christmas period. For 2000 as a whole, the airline carried 769,075 tonnes of cargo, also a record high.

Cathay Pacific's General Manager Network Revenue Ian Shiu said: "2000 was a highly successful year for Cathay Pacific both in terms of passenger and cargo operations. The record result in both areas was due to the growth in demand around our network and the hard work of all of our staff."
