Cathay Pacific has put in a good shift and it’s still going strong, as these fascinating images show.

They chart how the Hong Kong-based airline has been transformed over the decades as it celebrates its 75th anniversary. 

They document how its operation began in 1946 with a DC3 propeller plane, its first physical reservation office in 1948 in the iconic Peninsula Hotel, Hong Kong – and then how it became a pioneer of the jet age, flying Convair 880s, 747s and lately Airbus A350s. 

Chief Executive Officer Augustus Tang said: ‘Cathay Pacific has seen exhilarating successes over the past incredible 75 years. We’ve connected people to many new destinations, welcomed the arrival of state-of-the-art aircraft and introduced exciting customer experience enhancements, to name a few.

‘We have also experienced unprecedented challenges, such as the global pandemic, which we are all still overcoming. What these over seven decades have shown is that we are a resilient brand.’

Scroll down for a time-warp journey in pictures through Cathay’s remarkable history.
