Cathay Pacific launches cargo flights to Riyadh

Aviation Updates Philippines – Beginning January 5, 2021, Hong Kong-based airline Cathay Pacific is launching a new cargo link between Hong Kong and Riyadh, Saudi Arabia.

"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," Cathay Pacific said.

"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."

In a press release, the airline said it plans to fly once-a-week to Riyadh from Hong Kong, with a scheduled stop-over at Dubai World Central airport. The flight schedule is as follows:

Cathay Pacific Cargo has been strengthening its cargo network to support the strong logistics demand internationally. Last month, the airline introduced Hong Kong-Hobart flights to provide an airlink for the export of fresh produce in Australia.

To complement the existing cargo flights, Cathay Pacific has also introduced cargo-only flights aboard passenger aircraft to bring additional freighter capacity.
