Cathay Pacific Airways today announced that it will boost its freighter services into the
United States by launching a twice-weekly scheduled service to Columbus, Ohio on 21
March 2014.
Columbus will be Cathay Pacific’s 12th freighter destination in North America. The new
service will offer shippers more choice and flexibility when moving commodities between
Asia and North America. Meanwhile, the fully operational, state-of-the-art Cathay Pacific
Cargo Terminal in the Hong Kong hub will further improve onward connections with
Cathay Pacific’s extensive international cargo network.
Cathay Pacific Director Cargo James Woodrow said: “Cathay Pacific is delighted to
further strengthen our industry leading Trans-pacific service by adding Columbus to our
network. Our 13 Boeing 747-8F freighters are the ideal aircraft to link Hong Kong with the
Americas giving a reliable and fuel efficient service to our customers. ”
Cathay Pacific will operate the Columbus service on a Hong Kong – Anchorage –
Columbus – New York (JFK) – Vancouver – Hong Kong routing every Wednesday and
Friday, using its newest and biggest freighter, the Boeing 747-8F.
Cathay Pacific currently operates cargo services to 11 destinations in North America and
flies to 43 freighter destinations around the world. Earlier this month, the airline
announced the launch of a thrice-weekly scheduled freighter service to Mexico City on 1
March. Cathay Pacific recently took delivery of its 13th Boeing 747-8F freighter aircraft,
with one more on order for delivery in 2016.
Details of Cathay Pacific’s new Columbus (LCK) freighter service from 21 March 2014
are as follows (all times local):
