Cathay Pacific Cargo has resumed its weekly Boeing 747 freighter service from Toowoomba Wellcamp Airport in Queensland, Australia to Hong Kong.

In a LinkedIn post on August 4, the carrier said: “We are thrilled to be supporting local producers once more, delivering a wide range of exports including chilled meats, vegetables and more to Hong Kong and beyond.”

Toowoomba Wellcamp Airport also published a LinkedIn post that stated: “This freighter service is a gateway for oversize cargo, chilled meat, horticulture-fruit/vegetables, seafood, oil and gas, mining equipment and artwork.”

The airport operates its international air cargo terminal in conjunction with Menzies Aviation.

Cathay Pacific Cargo launched Toowoomba Wellcamp Airport’s first dedicated international freighter service when it started the route in 2016.

The service has been suspended since December 2021 due to Covid quarantine measures for air cargo crew implemented by Hong Kong authorities.

The carrier recently said it is expecting a muted peak season while it continues to add passenger flights and faces cross-border trucking issues.
