Cathay Pacific defers five A350 deliveries, switches six to smaller model
Hong Kong airline Cathay Pacific Airways Ltd (0293.HK) will defer deliveries of five Airbus SE (AIR.PA) widebody aircraft by a year and switch six others to a smaller model as it finalised an order for 32 narrowbody aircraft, it said on Wednesday.
The carrier has been slashing costs and adjusting its route network after reporting on Aug. 16 its biggest first-half loss in at least two decades amid stiff competition from rivals.
It announced a non-binding deal to buy 32 Airbus A321neo aircraft valued at $4.064 billion at list prices on Aug. 21. That purchase was finalised on Wednesday, according to a stock exchange announcement.
Cathay also said on Wednesday it would switch six orders for A350-1000s to the smaller A350-900 model, saving $288 million based on list prices. The A350-900s will be delivered in 2019 and 2020, the airline said.
Cathay added it would defer the delivery of six A350-1000 aircraft to 2021 from 2020.
“We evaluate and adjust our fleet plan on an ongoing basis in accordance with the airlines’ latest network growth needs,” a Cathay spokesman said. “The A350-900 is an efficient aircraft for launching new routes and operating secondary frequencies, which better matches our expansion plan for the next couple of years.”
An Airbus spokesman confirmed the A321neo orders and the changes to the A350 order, and said the total number of A350s ordered by Cathay remained unchanged at 46. Cathay has also leased two A350-900s from AerCap Holdings NV
Airlines typically receive discounts on the list prices from the manufacturers. Cathay said it had received unspecified price concessions as part of the deal.
The airline announced on Aug. 31 it would fly from its Hong Kong hub to three new European destinations - Brussels, Copenhagen and Dublin - using A350-900 aircraft from next summer. It has cancelled flights to Düsseldorf, Germany as part of the network changes.
The A321neos, to be delivered between 2020 and 2023, will be operated mainly by short-haul arm Cathay Dragon on routes to mainland China and elsewhere within Asia, the airline said last month.
5th September 2017
Pacific Airways announced that it will launch service to three European capital cities in 2018 – Brussels, Copenhagen (seasonal) and Dublin – all of which will be flown on the carrier’s A350s.
The service to Copenhagen was suggested as a potential city pair for the oneworld carrier in March last year. It also means that the first five of these potential city pairs are now served or will soon be, and that 16 out of 71 sectors featured (or 23%) have now been successfully converted to operational services.
It has been a positive few years for the Cathay Pacific with regards to European expansion, with it having added Barcelona, London Gatwick, Madrid, Düsseldorf, Zurich and Manchester since 2014. In total the airline will be serving 15 destinations in Europe during S18, along with Tel Aviv in Israel which was also added to the network this year.
For Dublin, Hong Kong becomes the airport’s first Far East destination, with Abu Dhabi, Doha and Dubai currently being its most easterly destinations. For Brussels, it already has flights to Bangkok Suvarnabhumi, Beijing, Tokyo Narita and Mumbai, while a service to Shanghai Pudong is scheduled to begin in October. Copenhagen also has regular flights to Asia, with Bangkok Suvarnabhumi, Beijing, Shanghai Pudong, Singapore and Tokyo Narita all served this summer. The Danish capital will also gain a direct link to Delhi with Air India, planned to start 16 September.
In 2016, when referring to OAG Traffic Analyser data, around 40,300 people flew indirectly between Dublin and Hong Kong. Approximately 54,600 flew between Copenhagen and the Asian hub, while 37,800 travelled to/from Brussels. What these numbers do not take into account is surface leakage which would be much greater from the Belgian capital due to its good land links to Amsterdam, Paris CDG and Düsseldorf, all of which are currently served by Cathay Pacific.

Cathay acquired it’s first jet aircraft, a Convair 880, in the early 1960’s and took delivery of the first of it’s many Boeing 747 aeroplanes in 1974 and the "Jumbo Jet" remains the backbone of its 116 aircraft fleet to this day. Cathay Pacific has significant stakes in Hong Kong Airways, Dragon Air and Air Hong Kong.
