Hi as of September TG and CX bringing in additional freighter services into SYD.
TG on for Tuesday departure and CX for Thursday and Sunday departure.
inbound i can understand demand but what are they expecting to fly out.
and both carrier stating these freighters are here to stay. and from what i hear EK might bring in
a freighter to SYD too later in the year.
Very few airlines operate freighters into Australia. Flights go in completely full and with excellent yields but leave relatively empty. QF freighter operations from SYD to the USA are done via PVG so the flight comes inbound to the USA full and leaves full.

Quoting eyflyer88 (Reply 2): That would be great, EK only has PAX services at this point and their flights are always completely full with no cargo capacity at all so a freighter may offer some flexibility.
From my understanding and I base this on what I have read in the past... EK apparently have a contract across the Tasman utilizing the belly of the A380 and B77W aircraft freight forwarding across the Tasman which explains why they can afford to operate during low season the aircraft half full across the pond...
Good evening, ladies and gentlemen. We are tonight’s entertainment!

Australia has had a massive amount of growth in freight both inbound and outbound. I know there is a bad bottle neck of export to Australia from the west coast US. Too much cargo and not enough capacity.

inbound i am with you , that always the case but on the outbound there is not much general cargo
unless you doing Perishable. but even that is not filling up these extra freighters. but i am not complaining , love to the these birds here in SYD and having them on hand to get my cargo on it.
