What is the brand history of Cathay Pacific? 

In 1946, American Roy Farrell and Australian Sydney de Kantzow—two ex-Air Force pilots known for flying “The Hump” over the Himalayas—had the idea to fly much-needed goods from Australia into postwar China. From there came Cathay Pacific, an airline fueled by its founders' passion for flying and love of the region.

Where does Cathay Pacific fly to?
From North America, we fly to our home in Hong Kong and then travel to more than 200 destinations worldwide, including Asia, Europe, Australia and Africa.
