Cathay Pacific Cargo

HongKong. 05 January 2021. Cathay Pacific Cargo has launched a new scheduled freighter service between Hong Kong and Riyadh (RUH) starting 5 January 2021.

The airline has seen a growing demand for air cargo flights between Saudi Arabia and Hong Kong (HKG), a leading cargo and logistics hub in Asia. These new flights will meet the strong demand for shipments of e-commerce and other general cargo such as garments, providing our customers with reliable, efficient and direct air cargo services offering the high level of quality for which Cathay Pacific Cargo is known.

The inaugural flight on 5 January will see Cathay Pacific Cargo operate the service using its Boeing B747-400 ERF aircraft.

Flights will operate once per week every Tuesday with a stopover in Dubai (DWC) on the return flight to Hong Kong, with the following schedule:

Cathay Pacific Cargo has launched a number of scheduled and charter services recently to meet the air cargo needs of its customers.

On 16 December2020, the airline launched a seasonal cargo service between Hong Kong and Hobart in Australia, providing an important airfreight lane for the export of fresh produce from Hobart to various parts of Asia via Hong Kong. Meanwhile in September last year, the airline launched a temporary service to Pittsburgh in the US to serve the seasonal upsurge in demand.

In addition to operating a full freighter flight schedule, Cathay Pacific has also been operating thousands of pairs of cargo-only passenger flights, some with cargo loaded in the passenger cabins, and chartered hundreds of pairs of flights from its all-cargo subsidiary Air Hong Kong to provide additional air freight capacity.
