Excitement by Cathay Pacific Set
On 30 August 2006, Cathay Pacific's 100th aircraft - the new Airbus A330-300, named "Progress Hong Kong'- came nose-to-nose with "Niki", a DC replica of Cathay Pacific's second aircraft from 1946. Captain Charles "Chic "Eather, 86, who piloted the original Niki was honoured guest at the ceremony.
Cathay Pacific Airways celebrated a significant milestone in its 60-year history
when it took delivery of its 100th aircraft, an Airbus A330-300.
The new aircraft comes with a unique livery to mark its special status in the fleet,
and a new name 'Progress Hong Kong". It will feature Cathay Pacific's acclaimed
First Class and New Business Class and will serve regional and medium-haul routes
Just outside company headquarters at Cathay Pacific City stands a new symbol
that marks Cathay Pacific's 60 years of service as Hong Kong's home airline
The New Niki began as an old DC3 purchased in the Philippines, before teams
from Cathay Pacific's Engineering Department and maintenance provider HAECO
lovingly restored it in Cathay Pacific colours.
