The Cathay Pacific Airways expanded its freighter network with new services to Hanoi and Dhaka on Tuesday.

The new flights will be operated by a B747–200F flying on the Hong Kong- Hanoi-Dhaka-Hong Kong route every Tuesday and Thursday, said the organisers at a briefing at Sheraton Hotel in the Dhaka city.

‘Cathay Pacific and its sister carrier Dragonair carry cargo to a total of 80 destinations in Asia, the Middle East, Australasia, Europe and North America, said Dragonair Bangladesh-Nepal manager Rick Symington. ‘Each cargo will carry 80 tonnes of goods.

Of them, 40 tonnes will be readymade garments and leather goods and the rest will be fish, crabs and other goods, he added. ‘We have a plan to increase number of flights to east-west via Hong Kong,’ said Rick, adding the Cathay Pacific carried 23 millions of passengers last year.

Cathay Pacific cargo manager of India, Nepal, Bangladesh and Bhutan Ashish Kapur and Expolanka Group director Kazi Zahrul Qyyum attended the briefing.
