Airbus is hosting the Asian Youth Orchestra (AYO) in Toulouse for a special concert, organised in partnership with Cathay Pacific Airways and the Hong Kong Economic & Trade Office. This concert is part of a world tour by the AYO to mark the 20th anniversary of the establishment of the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region (SAR).

The AYO is one of the most respected and acclaimed pre-professional orchestras in the world today, providing young musicians from Asia with a platform to highlight their talents and perform on the international arena.

Prior to the concert a photo session was organised this morning involving over 100 musicians from the AYO in front of one of Cathay Pacific’s new A350 XWB aircraft, currently in production in Toulouse. The photo session was attended by guests from the airline, including Chief Executive Officer Rupert Hogg.

Tonight’s concert will be attended by guests from Cathay Pacific, the Hong Kong Economic & Trade Office, local dignitaries from Toulouse and some 300 Airbus employees.

The Cathay Pacific Group is one of Airbus’ most important customers from the Asia-Pacific region and currently operates over 100 Airbus aircraft, including 17 A350s, 61 A330s and 23 A320 Family. In addition, the Group has another 31 A350s on order for future delivery and earlier today signed a Memorandum of Understanding for the purchase of 32 A321neo.
