    Cathay chairman Patrick Healy yesterday advised in Dubai on the sidelines of the IATA annual general meeting that Cathay does not intend to expand its network or bring forward its target of 1st quarter 2025 for recovery to 2020 levels despite now reaching 80% of pre-pandemic capacity.

    Healy said “that by the time the carrier reached full capacity the number of destinations would be restored from the present 80 to 90, and only then would it start looking at other locations.
    “Then clearly we’re looking to implement expansion opportunities.There’s a lot of interest in the Middle East these days out of Hong Kong for obvious reasons and clearly those opportunities we’re very aware of”.

    The company also announced it would relaunch passenger flights between Hong Kong and Riyadh in the fourth quarter 2024 as the government pursued stronger trade and investment links with Saudi Arabia. The Saudi route was axed in March 2017.
