HONG KONG's Cathay Pacific and Cathay Dragon will reduce capacity by 96 per cent across our passenger network in April and May because of the severe drop in demand due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic and multiple government travel restrictions.

?While our freighter network remains intact, we are also ramping up our cargo capacity by mounting charter services and operating certain suspended passenger services purely for airfreight to meet cargo customer demand,' said Cathay's chief commercial Officer Ronald Lam.



As announced, Cathay Pacific and Cathay Dragon intend to operate a skeleton passenger flight schedule in April and May, though our freighter capacity remains intact.



'Our ability to maintain even this skeleton schedule will depend on whether more travel restrictions are imposed by governments around the world which will further dampen passenger demand,' he said.



Cathay Pacific will operate three flights per week to 12 destinations: London (Heathrow), Los Angeles, Vancouver, Tokyo (Narita), Taipei, New Delhi, Bangkok, Jakarta, Manila, Ho Chi Minh City, Singapore and Sydney.

Cathay Dragon will operate three flights per week to 3 destinations: Beijing, Shanghai (Pudong), and Kuala Lumpur.



?As Hong Kong?s home airlines, it is important that we continue to provide important passenger and cargo connections to and from the Hong Kong hub,' said Mr Lam.



'We will endeavour to maintain a minimal number of flights to and from key destinations in our network to ensure these vital arteries remain open.
