Photo Special: Cathay Pacific hosts gala dinner for Milan service launch

Cathay Pacific Airways recently staged a gala celebration to mark the launch of its new service to Milan - Italy’s principal business and finance centre and a world-renowned capital for design and fashion. The latest addition to the network highlights the airline’s commitment to the Italian market and its ongoing work to strengthen Hong Kong’s position as one of the world’s leading international aviation hubs.

The celebration was hosted by Cathay Pacific chairman Christopher Pratt at the fashionable Palazzo del Ghiaccio in Milan with about 500 guests in attendance. Guests of honour at the event were Mr Yau Shing-mu, Under Secretary for Transport and Housing in the Government of the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region, and Gianvalerio Lombardi, Prefect of Milan. Among the other guests were members of the diplomatic community, Italian corporate clients and representatives from the travel and freight industries.

The airline’s chairman, Christopher Pratt, said: “We are extremely proud of the fact that with the launch of our new four-flights-weekly service, Cathay Pacific became the only airline to offer direct flights between Milan and our home city, Hong Kong.”
