Cathay Pacific Cargo To Launch DFW Service

Sat Jul 02, 2005 6:49 am

Looks like CX is launching 3x weekly cargo service from DFW-HKG in November.

DFW's cargo to Asia has seen immense growth in recent years, with 34 weekly flights on Singapore, Korean Air, China Airlines, EVA, and others.

I just wish this growth in cargo would lead to some growth in passenger flights to Asia!

There is no way they are doing this non-stop is there?

I don't even think the 747ERF has enough range.

Sounds as if this flight will share with ATL. CX pushed back the start of the ATL cargo flight to November.

Wonder if they are looking for more export freight, rates are really bad in ATL with 27 freighters to Asia between JAL, China Airlines, EVA Air, Korean Air, and Polar.
