Cathay Pacific beförderte im September nur 47.061 Passagiere

Die in Hongkong beheimatete Cathay Pacific beförderte im September 2020 zusammen mit ihrer Tochtergesellschaft Cathay Dragon nur 47.061 Passagiere. Dies entspricht ca. 1.568 Passagieren pro Tag. Gegenüber dem September 2019 ergibt sich ein Rückgang um 98,1%.

“September rounded off what has been an incredibly difficult summer, traditionally the peak passenger travel season of the year. We continued to operate minimal capacity – just 9% in September – a marginal month-on-month increase from about 8% in August. This was despite the resumption of some services, notably Cebu and Perth. Daily passenger numbers remained low, averaging just 1,568, while load factor sat at about 25%.” [Cathay Pacific Group Chief Customer and Commercial Officer Ronald Lam]

Auch der Ausblick bei Cathay Pacific ist düster. Die Airline geht davon aus, dass auch 2021 nur 50% der ursprünglichen Kapazitäten angeboten werden können.

“After carefully studying numerous scenarios facing the industry and our airlines, we expect we will be operating approximately 10% of our pre-pandemic passenger flight capacity for the rest of 2020 and under 50% for overall 2021.”
