Hong Kong Air Cargo has launched a new chartered freighter service between Hong Kong and Sydney using its Airbus A330-200F.
The first flight departed Hong Kong International Airport on Thursday, 8 December at 23:30 local time and arrived in Sydney the next day. The Airbus A330-200F will operate between Hong Kong and Sydney three times each week.
In 2021, Hong Kong Air Cargo received approval to operate flights to nine new destinations, including Sydney. The airline said the new service will allow customers to streamline cargo consignments originating from both the airline’s current route network and its hub in Hong Kong to Australia.
William Chan, Director of Government and Public Affairs, Hong Kong Air Cargo, said the airline will continue expanding its route network to serve customers’ needs.
“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.”
