The launch of Virgin Australia’s daily Melbourne-Hong Kong services on Sunday is a timely boost to meet growing demand for cargo capacity on the route, according to Virgin Atlantic Cargo, which provides long-haul international cargo sales and management for Virgin Australia. Volumes have been increasing steadily in both directions since Virgin Australia commenced five A330-200 flights a week in July. The extra capacity provided by the new daily service will support the peak perishables season ex-Australia, as well as thriving e-commerce and courier business from Hong Kong.
