Cathay increases e-AWB coverage

CATHAY Pacific is rolling out electronic air waybills (e-AWB) for all airfreight in Singapore and Malaysia.

The programme will extend to the UAE and Australia in the second quarter of 2012 and reach the carrier’s entire network by 2014, as per IATA’s Simplifying the Business programme.

Cathay was the first airline to switch to 100 per cent use of e-AWBs at a hub, when it launched the programme in Hong Kong on 1 January 2011.

Cathay Pacific’s director of cargo, Nick Rhodes, says the use of e-AWBs brings better operational efficiency and accuracy, and savings to shippers.
