Cathay Pacific expands cargo presence in the Americas with new freighter service to Portland

Cathay Pacific Airways today announced an expansion of its freighter services in the Americas with the addition of a twice-weekly scheduled service to Portland in Oregon, the United States, from 3 November 2016, subject to government approval. Portland will be Cathay Pacific?s 18th cargo station in the Americas. The new Portland service will operate on a Hong Kong - Anchorage - Los Angeles - Portland - Anchorage - Hong Kong routing every Thursday and Saturday, using Cathay Pacific?s newest and biggest freighter, the Boeing 747-8F. The service will meet growing demand to move a wide range of commodities from the Pacific Northwest and the United States to various parts of Asia, providing shippers with greater choice and flexibility when connecting to Cathay Pacific?s international cargo network through the Hong Kong hub. Cathay Pacific Director Cargo Simon Large said: ?The Americas is a very important market for Cathay Pacific and we are delighted to add Portland to our expanding freighter network. We are committed to providing the best cargo services connecting Asia to this important manufacturing region, and at the same time boosting Hong Kong?s standing as one of the world?s key international airfreight hubs.?
