Cathay Pacific 30th Anniversary at YVR Contest

We are so excited to be joining Cathay Pacific as they celebrate 30 years of operating at YVR!

Vancouver became the airline's first destination in North Americe three decades ago when they launched two flights weekly between Vancouver and Hong Kong, the first airline to offer the service non-stop. Flash forward to today and Cathay Pacific now offers twice daily service between Vancouver and Hong Kong and daily non-stops between here and New York.

To help celebrate this milestone we are giving away a fun piece of Cathay Pacific memorabilia to one lucky aviation enthusiast. All you have to do is answer a simple trivia question and be entered to win the super cool large-scale airplane model pictured below.  At 51 inches, this model is truly something to behold.   

Over the next two weeks there will be a total of five questions posted to our blog. You can answer each question once and every correct answer is worth one contest entry - so come back every few days for more opportunities to win! The contest is open until May 15th, 2013 at 11:59 PM PST.  Leave your answer in the comments section and make sure you Like us on Facebook. Check back in a few days for our next question, and answer correctly for a better chance to win! 

Today's question: What year did Cathay Pacific start flying out of Vancouver International Airport?
