Travel News Asia 26 April 2005

Cathay Pacific is to launch a new freighter service to Dallas and Atlanta to help meet the growing demand in the United States for exports shipped through Hong Kong.

Both cities are new Cathay Pacific online destinations. A Boeing 747-400 freighter will operate three times a week from 19 November 2005, departing Hong Kong every Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday, stopping first in Dallas and continuing to Atlanta. 

With this new service Cathay Pacific will operate 21 scheduled freighters a week to six US cities and offer cargo services to 52 destinations around the world. The other four US cargo ports in the airlines network are Chicago, Los Angeles, New York and San Francisco.

Cathay Pacific Director and General Manager Cargo, Ron Mathison said, Cathay Pacifics new freighter flights to Dallas and Atlanta will improve our service to shippers delivering access to new markets and cutting delivery times and demonstrates our commitment to further strengthen Hong Kong as the worlds busiest international cargo hub. Expanding our US network is a significant step for the airline and Hong Kong.
