Cathay Pacific’s C.E.O. Resigns Amid Criticism From China

HONG KONG — The chief executive of Cathay Pacific Airways, Hong Kong’s flag carrier, has resigned, the company said on Friday, after the airline faced intense criticism from the Chinese authorities and the state news media for its employees’ participation in the territory’s protests.

Cathay’s chief executive, Rupert Hogg, had warned staff in the past week against joining “illegal protests.”

China’s aviation regulator last week ordered Cathay to bar employees who support or join demonstrations from doing any work involving flights to mainland China. It also required that the airline submit information about all crew members who fly to or above the mainland to the authorities for approval.

Mr. Hogg’s resignation will be effective on Monday, Cathay said in a filing to the Hong Kong Stock Exchange.

He is stepping down, the filing said, “to take responsibility as a leader of the company in view of recent events.”
