Qantas Freight is to launch a direct weekly Boeing 747-400 freighter service between the United States and New Zealand from February 2009.

 Group General Manager Qantas Freight, Mr Stephen Cleary, said, "Our new freighter service will provide main deck capacity between the US east coast and New Zealand as well as from New Zealand into Australia, with connections to Asian ports including Bangkok, Hong Kong and Shanghai."

The service will initially operate every Friday from New York (JFK) and Chicago (ORD) through to Auckland (AKL) and Melbourne (MEL) and then extend direct from Melbourne into Asia.

"The new schedule will allow us to utilise our aircraft for additional charter work and to give us the option, subject to demand, of adding an additional weekly service on this new route at a later date," Mr Cleary added.
