The chief executive of Hong Kong airline Cathay Pacific Rupert Hogg has suddenly resigned a week after the company was threatened by Beijing with a safety ban over staff who had participated in democracy protests.

The news on Friday evening that Hogg had resigned was broken by Chinese state television broadcaster CCTV. Cathay Pacific released a statement to the Hong Kong Stock Exchange saying Mr Hogg and another senior executive “resigned to take responsibility as a leader of the company in view of recent events”.

Comment: Australia must listen to its Pacific neighbours on climate crisis The Morrison Government's recklessness in the face of the climate crisis — in full knowledge of its implications for Pacific Island people — is damaging Australia's friendships in the region, writes Raijeli Nicole.

Last Friday Cathay Pacific 's CEO resigned suddenly . Here's what allegedly happened behind the scenes that caused this to happen. Last Friday I wrote about how Cathay Pacific ’s CEO suddenly resigned . Rupert Hogg had been CEO fo the company since May 2017, and by most accounts did a

Hong Kong’s flagship carrier Cathay Pacific Airways Ltd. said its chief executive , Rupert Hogg, has resigned , after the airline came under fire from Beijing over its employees taking part in antigovernment protests that have rocked the city. Mr. Hogg, who had been CEO since May 2017, resigned “to take

In recent days Cathay Pacific had moved to sack two pilots and two ground staff who had been involved in democracy protests after the Chinese aviation regulator issued a safety warning and demanded the airline provided details of all staff flying over Chinese air space.

Merlin Swire, the chairman of Cathay Pacific’s major shareholder SwirePacific, visited Beijing this week to meet with the Civil Aviation Administration of China, amid reports an empty Cathay Pacific flight was denied entry to Chinese airspace on Monday.

Swire is one of Hong Kong’s oldest British trading houses. It also owns a prominent shopping centre, Taikoo Li, in Beijing.

A fifth of Cathay Pacific’s seat capacity is in flights in mainland China. Cathay Pacific had last month said publicly it wouldn’t tell its staff what to think when asked about the democracy protests after reports cabin crew had repeated the protesters' slogan “Hong Kong add oil” on the intercom and told passengers not to worry about the presence of protesters when they arrived in Hong Kong.

Tuvalu's PM says Australia's climate funding for Pacific 'not an excuse' to avoid emissions cuts

Tuvalu's PM says Australia's climate funding for Pacific 'not an excuse' to avoid emissions cuts Tuvalu warns Australia that redirecting aid money to climate resilience projects in the Pacific should not be used as an "excuse" to avoid reducing emissions and phasing out coal-fired power generation. Australia's Prime Minister Scott Morrison this morning announced a $500 million package of funding, redirected from aid spending, to help Pacific countries invest in renewable energy and become more resilient to climate and weather events.

A few weeks ago Cathay Pacific ’s CEO suddenly resigned , and now Cathay Pacific ’s Chairman is resigning as well. “I look forward to working closely with CEO Augustus Tang, my long-term Swire colleague, his talented team and the entire Board of Directors.

Cathay Pacific CEO Rupert Hogg has resigned after the Hong Kong-based airline was swept up in a series of controversies surrounding the involvement of its staff in anti-government protests. Paul Loo, the chief customer and commercial officer of Cathay , has also stepped down.

A Cathay Pacific pilot was among 40 people charged with “rioting” on July 28 as police stepped up a crackdown on protests. A female cabin crew member of an unidentified airline was among those arrested last Sunday.

In an email last week Hogg had warned staff they faced the sack if they took part in illegal activities or unauthorised protests. The airline had cancelled multiple flights as staff took part ina citywide general strike last month.

Beijing has labelled the protests as “close to terrorism”.

The undisguised political attack by Beijing on Cathay Pacific appears to have rattled other major companies. Several Hong Kong tycoons have taken out newspaper advertisements this week to state their supportfor Carrie Lam’ government.

Hong Kong’s richest man, Li Kashing, whose family has business interests on the mainland, but who has distanced himself from the communist party in recent years, published a more cryptic advertisement on Friday calling for an end to violence and warning the public of unintended consequences.

I examine why did the Cathay Pacifc CEO , Rupert Hogg, resign ? What did he do to earn the scorn of Beijing? Shouldn't Carrie Lam have gone first? Hogg, who has been with Swire Group, Cathay Pacific ’s parent company, since 1986, resigned along with Chief Customer & Commercial Officer
