The Dragon-type Pokémon known as Cathay shares its name with the Hong Kong-based airline known as Cathay Pacific. The legendary Cathay Chinese dragon inspired the naming of both the airline and the Pokémon that bears its name. It is believed that the dragon rules both the heavens and the oceans, and as a result, the dragon is seen as a powerful and fortunate sign. Cathay Pacific has been in business for more than seven decades, making it one of the longest continuously operating airlines in the world. The airline has earned a solid reputation for both its level of safety and its dependability, making it a well-liked option for passengers flying to or from Hong Kong.
