Cathay Pacific, Dragonair and Air Hong Kong complete move to new cargo terminal in Hong Kong

Cathay Pacific, Dragonair and Air Hong Kong completed (15-Oct-2013) the transfer of cargo operations to the new freight terminal at Hong Kong International Airport in early Oct-2013. The airlines commenced a phased transition to the terminal in Feb-2013. The HKD5.9 billion (USD761 million) facility increases the airport's cargo capacity by 50% to 7.4 million tonnes p/a. Cathay Pacific director cargo James Woodrow said, "The new facility will not only enable the Cathay Pacific Group to offer tailor-made services to our own cargo customers, but it will also raise service standards within the industry to new heights."
