As Hong Kong’s hometown airline, and a founding member of the oneworld alliance, Cathay Pacific has been flying passengers around the globe for more than 75 years. Featuring Business, Premium Economy, and Economy classes on all long-haul flights and First Class on select long-haul flights, Cathay Pacific offers something for every type of traveller.
Celebrating 40 years in The Americas
Cathay Pacific recently celebrated 40 years of flying to North America—its first flight between Hong Kong and Vancouver, BC, touched down on May 2, 1983, marking the first nonstop flight connecting these two cities.
Cathay Pacific’s 40-year anniversary in the Americas comes at a significant time: in 2023, the airline’s focus is on rebuilding its network and connectivity at its Hong Kong hub after three challenging years of pandemic reductions. Cathay Pacific currently operates over 50 flights per week out of North America from six cities (Boston, Los Angeles, New York, San Francisco, Toronto and Vancouver)—nearly half of its pre-pandemic capacity in the Americas—with more flights added every month.
This year, Cathay Pacific will mark several milestones: in June, its popular airport lounge at Vancouver International Airport reopened, with the San Francisco Airport lounge following soon. The airline will also take delivery of two state-of-the-art Airbus A350-900 aircraft in 2023.

Flying towards a greener future
Cathay Pacific was one of the first Asian airlines to commit to achieving net-zero carbon emissions by 2050. They will achieve this by spearheading the use of Sustainable Aviation Fuel, investing in new technology and fuel-efficient aircraft, offsetting carbon emissions, and reducing ground emissions. Cathay Pacific’s carbon emissions on average when carrying a unit payload (passenger or cargo in tons) for the same distance flown is among the lowest for airlines.
As a premium travel lifestyle brand, Cathay Pacific has been expanding its lifestyle offerings in payment, dining, shopping, holidays and wellness, and currently has over 800 partners to provide unique experiences for members (offerings may differ by market).
