Cathay Pacific Airways has announced an expansion of its freighter services in the Americas with the addition of a twice-weekly scheduled service to Portland International Airport (PDX) launching on November 3, 2016, subject to government approval. Portland will be Cathay Pacific’s 18th cargo station in the Americas.
The new Portland service will operate on a Hong Kong – Anchorage – Los Angeles – Portland – Anchorage – Hong Kong routing every Thursday and Saturday, using Cathay Pacific’s newest and biggest freighter, the Boeing 747-8F.
Cathay Pacific was the first Asia Pacific airline to take delivery of the Boeing 747-8F in 2011 and currently has 13 of this aircraft type in its cargo fleet.
