Cathay adds Phnom Penh to freighter network

Hong Kong’s Cathay Pacific Airways will launch a twice-weekly B747 freighter service to Phnom Penh, the capital of Cambodia, from 23 November.
The scheduled service will operate on a Hong Kong-Singapore-Penang-Phnom Penh-Hong Kong routing.
Cathay Pacific’s director cargo, James Woodrow, said: “We are delighted to strengthen our already extensive network in Asia by operating scheduled freighter services to Cambodia for the first time.
“This new service to Phnom Penh will boost the flow of garments and other manufactured products out of Cambodia, taking advantage of our world-class facilities in Hong Kong to connect to our comprehensive cargo network.”
Dragonair, the sister airline of Cathay Pacific, has been operating passenger services between Hong Kong and Phnom Penh since 1993.
