Cathay Pacific adds Kolkata to freighter network

Cathay Pacific Airways has announced a further expansion of its freighter network with the launch of a new service from Hong Kong to Kolkata, India.

The scheduled service will operate twice a week on a Hong Kong-New Delhi-Kolkata- Hong Kong routing. It is designed to strengthen the airline’s air freight presence within the Indian subcontinent, offering customers greater choice and flexibility when moving goods between South Asia and other parts of the world.

Cathay Pacific’s 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 facilities in Hong Kong to connect to our 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. It also carries freight in the bellies of its 140-plus passenger aircraft that serve a growing global network.
