Cathay Pacific to hit pre-pandemic capacity levels by end of 2024

In 2022, the airline expects to hit one-third of its capacity. 

It will take two years before Cathay Pacific returns to its pre-pandemic operations, according to the International Air Transport Association (IATA).

Based on IATA’s forecast, the airline will only be able to operate 100% of its pre-pandemic passenger flight capacity by the end of 2024.

Next year, 2023, IATA expects the airline to operate 70% of its pre-pandemic capacity.

In 2022, Cathay expects to hit one-third of its pre-pandemic capacity, following the addition of about 3,000 passenger flight sectors from October until the end of December.

“ This represents a doubling of the capacity that we offered in August and is approximately eight times the average capacity the airline operated in the first half of 2022,” Cathay Pacific CEO Augustus Tang said:
