Cathay Pacific Cargo resumes full freighter schedule

HONG KONG's Cathay Pacific Cargo has resumed its full freighter schedule and will be operating between 90 to 100 freighters a week, reports London's Air Cargo News.


"For the Americas, that means about 35 transpacific freighters a week, and there will be a daily freighter service to Europe," said Cathay Pacific Cargo director Tom Owen.


"We're also planning to operate more than 500 cargo-only-passenger flights a month around the region, which will also provide strong lift over the next few months to feed our reactivated long-haul freighter services."


Cathay Pacific has felt the impact of Covid restrictions in Hong Kong during the Covid crisis.


The restrictions have reduced the airline's passenger services to a fraction of pre-Covid crisis capacity and limited its cargo capacity.


However, the carrier has been building up its capacity again.


In May, Cathay Pacific restored its freighter network with flights to Amsterdam Schiphol, Paris CDG, London Heathrow, Dubai, Riyadh, and Phnom Penh.


Mr Owen noted that the company still faces challenges including crew constraints with its Chinese mainland schedule.
