Cathay Pacific is to launch freighter flights to Kolkata, India, on 11 March 2015.

Cathay Pacifics Director Cargo James Woodrow said, India is a very important market for Cathay Pacific and we are delighted to build on our existing network of five freighter destinations in the country. The new Kolkata service will boost the flow of garments and food products to and from India, taking advantage of our world-class facilities in Hong Kong to connect to our comprehensive global cargo network.

Cathay Pacific currently operates cargo services to 46 freighter destinations around the world, including Bangalore, Chennai, Delhi, Hyderabad and Mumbai in India.

The airline also carries freight in the bellies of its 140-plus passenger aircraft that serve a growing global network.
