May. 17, 2012 (China Knowledge) - Cathay Pacific Airways Ltd<293>, along with its subsidiary Hong Kong Dragon Airlines Ltd, has reported passenger traffic rose by 11.7% YoY to 2.52 million in April.

In a statement, Hong Kong-listed Cathay Pacific Airways said passenger load factor for last month reached 83.1%, 2.8 percentage points more than in April 2011. Capacity measured in available seat kilometers or ASKs, upped 8.2% YoY.

Meanwhile, the cargo and mail throughput totaled 124,500 metric tons last month, reflecting a YoY declined of 11%. The freight load factor was 63.3%, five percentage points lower than that of April 2011.

In the first four months of this year, the two airlines saw passenger throughput up 9.7% from a year earlier, but their cargo and mail throughput plunged 10.7% YoY.  

Cathay Pacific’s General Manager of Revenue Management Tom Owen said the company saw obvious growth in passenger throughput for April 2012, as the aviation market was sluggish due to earthquake and tsunami in the same month of last year.
