Cathay expands Asian freighter network

CATHAY Pacific Airways announced that it will add the cities of Hanoi in Vietnam and Dhaka in Bangladesh, to its freighter network with effect from 11 March.

The new flights will be operated by a B747-200F flying on a Hong Kong-Hanoi-Dhaka-Hong Kong routing every Tuesday and Thursday. The service will give its customers access to the burgeoning markets of these two fast-developing countries, at the same time helping to boost Hong Kong’s position as one of the premier international airfreight hubs.

Cathay Pacific director & general manager, Ron Mathison, said: “We are pleased to be able to expand our freighter services to Hanoi and Dhaka, giving our customers the opportunity to connect from these two increasingly important markets to and from our worldwide network. This latest enhancement of our freighter services helps to highlight our commitment to further developing the Hong Kong hub.”

With the addition of Hanoi and Dhaka, Cathay Pacific and its sister carrier, Dragonair, will together carry cargo to a total of 80 destination in Asia, the Middle East, Australasia, Europe and North America.
