Cathay Pacific Transfers 16 Airbus Orders To Hong Kong Express

November 9, 2019


Airlines often reshuffle aircraft orders amid changes in strategy. Cathay Pacific is now taking advantage of their low-cost carrier, HK Express, and transferring 16 Airbus A321neos intended for Cathay Dragon to HK Express. This move comes amid unrest impacting Cathay Pacific’s operations and passenger traffic.

Order swap from Cathay Dragon to HK Express

Cathay Pacific’s Cathay Dragon was slated to receive 32 Airbus A321neos. These aircraft were intended to replace the existing Airbus A320ceo family fleet. However, Cathay Pacific has altered this order so that 16 of the 32 remain with Cathay Dragon. The other 16 A321neos, meanwhile, will go to HK Express according to reporting from FlightGlobal. This comes after Cathay Pacific acquired the low-cost carrier.
