HISTORY OF THIS AIRLINE

It was 1946, and the news of the creation of Cathay Pacific took Hong Kong by a storm. It emerged when Roy Farrell and Sydney de Kantzow got the brilliant epiphany to fly into post-war China, creating the first ever and only freight service from Australia to China. 

As a matter of fact, Roy Farrell’s sense of passion is what gave birth to the name “Cathay Pacific” which was to showcase the dream of flying over the Pacific Ocean from China.
