Solid recovery for Cathay

Cathay Pacific Airways said it carried 69,702 metric tons of freight in January, up 2.2 percent on the same month last year, despite the short build-up to the Chinese New Year and the seasonal slowdown following the holiday.

Last year's New Year fell in early February.

The airline said January was its best month ever for passenger traffic, as it carried 1.128 million passengers, up four percent from a year ago.
