The Garage
    athay Pacific Airways Limited is the largest airline and flag carrier of
    Hong Kong. Based at Hong Kong International Airport, the airline's
operations include scheduled passenger and cargo services to 120
destinations worldwide.

Early years

Cathay Pacific Airways was founded in Hong Kong on 24 September 1946 by
American Roy Farrell and Australian Sydney de Kantzow. Both men were ex-air
force pilots who had flown The Hump, a route over the Himalayan Mountains.
Each man put up HK$1 to register the airline. Although initially based in
Shanghai, the two men moved to Hong Kong where they formally began
Cathay Pacific Airways. They named it "Cathay" because it was the Medieval
name given to China, derived from "Khitan", and "Pacific" because Farrell
speculated that they would one day fly across the Pacific. The Chinese name
for the company comes from a Chinese idiom meaning "Grand and Peaceful
State".

Present

To celebrate the airline's 60th anniversary in 2006 a year of road shows
named the "Cathay Pacific 60th Anniversary Skyshow" was held where the
public could see the developments of the airline, play games, meet some of
the airline's staff, and view vintage uniforms. Cathay Pacific also introduced
anniversary merchandise and in-flight meals served by famous restaurants in
Hong Kong in collaboration with the celebrations. In 2007 Cathay Pacific and
Dragonair carried more than 23 million passengers.
