New Cathay Pacific Airways Chief Executive John Slosar used his keynote speech at the Aerospace Forum Asia to reiterate the airline’s support for the building of a third runway at Hong Kong International Airport (HKG) as the public consultation period for the proposal comes to an end.
“Hong Kong is about connectivity and the sustainability of the Hong Kong economy and, therefore, the long-term prosperity and wellbeing of Hong Kong people is dependent on us continuing to provide and grow those linkages for the future,” he said.
Mr Slosar also pointed out that the development of a third runway at HKIA is the only viable way to ensure the long-term competitiveness of Hong Kong as an important international financial, trading and logistics, tourism and professional services hub.
“The rest of the world is not standing still, with new aviation infrastructure being planned in Seoul, Bangkok and Mainland China. If we decide to step out of the race, then the others will pass us,” he said. www.cathaypacific.com
