Cathay Pacific Launches Freighter Service to Portland, Oregon

Cathay Pacific Airways has launched a twice-weekly freighter service to Portland International Airport (PDX) - the Hong Kong-based airline's 18th cargo station in the Americas. The service runs every Thursday and Saturday, Cathay Pacific says, using its newest and biggest freighter, the Boeing 747-8F.

The service meets growing demand to move a range of commodities from the Pacific Northwest and the United States to various parts of Asia, the airline says, providing shippers with greater choice and flexibility when connecting to Cathay Pacific's international cargo network through the Hong Kong hub.

Cathay Pacific Airways flies daily to Hong Kong and 22 destinations in Mainland China from six cities in the U.S. and two in Canada: Boston, Chicago, Los Angeles, New York (JFK), Newark Liberty, San Francisco, Vancouver and Toronto. The airline offers cargo service to 18 cities in the Americas.

Details of Cathay Pacific's new Portland (PDX) freighter service are as follows:

Hong Kong (HKG) – Anchorage (ANC) – Los Angeles (LAX) – Portland (PDX) – Anchorage (ANC) – Hong Kong (HKG)
