Cathay Pacific

Cathay Pacific (Chinese: 國泰航空) is the flag carrier of Hong Kong, with its head office and main hub located at Hong Kong International Airport. The airline was founded on 24 September 1946 by Australian Sydney H. de Kantzow and American Roy C. Farrell, with each man putting up HK$1 to register the airline. The airline made the world’s first non-stop transpolar flight flying over the North Pole in July 1998, which was also the maiden flight to arrive at the then new Hong Kong International Airport.

On 1 July 1997, the administration of Hong Kong was transferred from the UK to the People’s Republic of China. Most of the airline’s aircraft were registered in Hong Kong with a registration beginning with “VR”. Under the terms of an agreement within the Sino-British Joint Liaison Group (JLG), all registrations were changed by December 1997 to the prefix “B” used by the People’s Republic of China and the Republic of China (Taiwan). Cathay Pacific aircraft formerly carried a painted UK Union Flag on the tail, but these were removed several years before the 1997 takeover.
