Cathay Pacific plans to launch a service to Mexico City on March 1, allowing it to expand its services in Latin America, the airline announced in a news release.
In addition, Cathay will also increase the frequency of its service to Guadalajara from two to three freighter flights a week.
The Mexico City service will operate on the following schedule, routing every Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday: Hong Kong, Anchorage, Los Angeles, Mexico City, Guadalajara, Anchorage, Hong Kong.
The airline stated that the service will help it meet demand and move commodities from Latin American to parts of Asia, as well as offer more flexibility to shippers.
Cathay Pacific’s director of cargo, James Woodrow, stated, “We are delighted to launch this new freighter service to Mexico City as well as increasing the frequency to Guadalajara to three flights per week. We are committed to providing the best services connecting Asia to the fast-growing markets in Mexico and Latin America. We hope this new direct service will further stimulate the flow of goods between Mexico and Asia, at the same time boosting Hong Kong’s standing as one of the world’s key international airfreight hubs.”
