About Us

At Cathay Pacific, we’ve been letting our passion fly for over 65 years.

Our airline was founded in 1946 as a small Hong Kong based freight and passenger carrier. Today, we stand proud as Hong Kong’s flagship airline, and as one of the best in the world. Our 138 wide-bodied passenger and cargo aircraft fly to 174 destinations in 41 countries and territories.

Despite our global growth, we’ve remained deeply committed to our home base of Hong Kong. Significant investments have been made to help transform Hong Kong into a world-leading global transportation hub. Our expansive operation now includes in-flight catering, ground handling companies, as well as our new Cargo Terminal and Cathay Pacific City, our corporate headquarters located at Hong Kong International Airport.

It requires a broad range of expert teams to run an airline of our size and complexity. Our success is the result of many departments working together to deliver safe and seamless flight and business operations. From engineers, pilots and customer service teams, to IT, marketing and finance professionals – each person plays a critical role in ensuring that we remain a world-leading airline.
