Cathay’s new freighter service to Columbus

CATHAY Pacific is augmenting its freighter operations in the USA with a twice-weekly scheduled service to Columbus, Ohio, from March.
The new Hong Kong-Anchorage-Columbus-New York (JFK)-Vancouver-Hong Kong route will be serviced with a B747-8F.
Cathay Pacific currently operates cargo services to 11 destinations in North America and flies to 43 freighter destinations around the world. Earlier this month, the airline announced the launch of a thrice-weekly scheduled freighter service to Mexico City on 1 March.
The carrier recently took delivery of its 13th B747-8F – one more is scheduled to join its fleet in 2016.
James Woodrow, director of cargo at Cathay Pacific, states: “Cathay Pacific is delighted to further strengthen our industry-leading transpacific service by adding Columbus to our network. Our 13 B747-8 freighters are the ideal aircraft to link Hong Kong with the Americas, giving a reliable and fuel efficient service to our customers.”
