(Reuters) – Hong Kong’s Cathay Pacific Airways (OTC:) Ltd is in talks with aircraft manufacturers about future orders for medium-haul aircraft and dedicated freighters, a senior executive said on Friday.

“Overall we have enough long-haul aircraft to fulfil Cathay Pacific’s growth plan,” Chief Customer and Customer Officer Ronald Lam said during an analyst briefing, citing existing orders for Airbus SE (OTC:) A350 and Boeing (NYSE:) Co 777X planes.

Lam said the focus would be on acquiring more medium-haul jets capable of operating around the Asia-Pacific region as well as dedicated freighters, though he did not provide the numbers or types being considered.
