Cathay Pacific

Cathay Pacific has announced that it has completed the acquisition of HK Express. HK Express is now a wholly owned subsidiary.  

Cathay Pacific Cargo has been appointed as the General Sales and Service Agent (GSSA) for all HK Express cargo activities across its network effective September 1, 2019. HK Express will continue to operate as usual and work closely with Hong Kong Air Cargo Carrier Limited (RH), the incumbent cargo GSSA for HK Express, to ensure a smooth transition.

HK Express has a fleet of 24 narrow-body aircraft covering regional routes between Hong Kong and Japan, Korea, Southeast Asia, mainland China and Taiwan. The combined cargo network of Cathay Pacific, Cathay Dragon and HK Express will progressively offer more choices to customers.

Cathay Pacific Chief Executive Officer and HK Express Chairman Rupert Hogg said: “We are very excited to welcome HK Express into the group. We strongly believe that the acquisition is good for the customers, good for HK Express, good for the Cathay Pacific Group, and good for the development of Hong Kong as a global aviation hub.”
