Its launch on selected routes triggered a global conversation on a scale the airline had never seen before. Due to its success, Betsy has now been expanded across all key routes, as well as craft outlets around Hong Kong. Following the campaign, 83% of customers agreed that Betsy Beer differentiated Cathay from other airlines and 74% of customers agreed that Betsy positively enhances the passengers’ travel experience.
