Hong Kong Air Cargo has launched a new chartered freighter service between Hong Kong and Sydney, Australia.
The first flight departed Hong Kong International Airport on Thursday, 8th December at 23.30hrs and arrived in Sydney this morning. The Airbus A330-200F will operate between Hong Kong and Sydney three times weekly.
In 2021, Hong Kong Air Cargo received approval to operate flights to nine new destinations, Sydney being one of them. The new service will allow customers the opportunity to streamline cargo consignments originating from both the airlines current route network and its hub Hong Kong to Australia
William Chan, Director of Government and Public Affairs, Hong Kong Air Cargo said, “We will continue to expand our route network and improve our service to serve our customers. As the global market recovers from the pandemic, it is important for us to focus on what we do well and respond to our customer’s needs whilst ensuring that we strengthen Hong Kong’s position as the international cargo hub.”
