Ashish Kapur, Area Manager Northern Europe at Cathay Pacific, commented: “We are encouraged to see the return of the Cathay Pacific livery at Amsterdam Airport Schiphol again. While we realize the fight against the pandemic is not yet entirely over, we believe that the recent vaccine development is igniting a spark of hope for millions of people and that we will see the gradual reopening of air links between Europe and the rest of the world.

Our teams and operators in the sector are helping to turn the page by inaugurating a new chapter in the safety of international travel. With a spirit of progressiveness and initiative, we are looking forward to welcoming our passengers on board again soon.”
