|FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE||11th January 2005|
Cathay Pacific Airways today announced that it will launch daily freighter services to Shanghai from 27 January 2005, further expanding the airline's Mainland network and strengthening Hong Kong as the predominant gateway to the Mainland.
Shanghai will be the second Mainland city that Cathay Pacific serves. The airline resumed passenger services to Beijing on 2 December 2003 after a break of 13 years, and now operates daily services to the capital city. Cathay Pacific has also been allocated rights upon designation to operate three weekly passenger services to Xiamen and will launch services in late February 2005, subject to operational requirements.
Cathay Pacific Director and General Manager Cargo Ron Mathison said: "Cathay Pacific's new freighter service will connect the Mainland's biggest commercial centres and provide direct links across the Cathay Pacific network from Shanghai to destinations throughout the region and beyond to major markets in Europe and North America. The service will further strengthen Hong Kong as a global logistics hub and gateway to the Mainland and we plan to add additional freighter frequencies to Shanghai in the near future"
The daily freighter services to Shanghai will be operated by a B747-200 freighter aircraft.
