Cathay Pacific Airways has launched a temporary expansion of its operations in the Americas, with a 12-week cargo service linking Pittsburgh International Airport (PIT) with Southeast Asia. The new service supplements Cathay Pacific Cargo’s existing network throughout the Americas, which encompasses cargo services from Hong Kong to East Coast ports such as Boston, Newark, and Washington, Dulles, as well as a dedicated freighter service to New York (JFK). The first arrival touched down in Pittsburgh on 21 September carrying consumer goods from Asia.

The temporary service originates in Ho Chi Minh (SGN) with a stop at Cathay Pacific’s Cargo Terminal at Hong Kong International Airport, before arriving in PIT every Monday and Thursday until 26 November 2020. Flight CX8800 is operated by a reconfigured Boeing 777-300ER passenger aircraft carrying cargo in the passenger cabin.

Cathay Pacific has reconfigured two Boeing 777-300ER passenger aircraft into ‘preighters’ to introduce additional cargo capacity for customers. The removal of seats from the Economy and Premium Economy cabins enables the carriage of 12 additional tonnes of cargo under enhanced safety and security measures.
