Should we tell the true story of the company's name? It is said that Sydney de KANTZOW, the Australian, and Roy FARREL, the American, both founders of the Company found the name in the Bar of The Manila Hotel. Who knows? After issues in China, the founders transfer the company to Hong Kong. The company develops significantly in the 50s and the 60s with international flights, mostly in the Pacific area. Fifty years later, the company is one of the leading ones from its hub in Hong Kong. The Marco Polo club gives passengers advantages and privileged services depending on their past flights, in link with One World alliance. The Diamond Plus is the highest level.

This Polar One from New York to Hong Kong was the world's 1st non-stop transpolar flight flying over the North Pole.
