November 03, 2014: Cathay Pacific Airways today announced the launch of a new freighter service to Phnom Penh, the capital city of Cambodia, commencing 23 November 2014.
The scheduled service will operate twice a week on a Hong Kong-Singapore-Penang-Phnom Penh-Hong Kong routing and will further strengthen the airline's presence within the Asia Pacific region, offering customers greater choice and flexibility when moving goods between Cambodia and other parts of the world.
Cathay Pacific's Director Cargo James Woodrow said: "We are delighted to strengthen our already extensive network in Asia by operating scheduled freighter services to Cambodia for the first time. This new service to Phnom Penh will boost the flow of garments and other manufactured products out of Cambodia, taking advantage of our world-class facilities in Hong Kong to connect to our comprehensive cargo network."
Cathay Pacific currently operates cargo services to 45 freighter destinations around the world, including a new service to Calgary launched last month. Dragonair, the sister airline of Cathay Pacific, has been operating passenger services between Hong Kong and Phnom Penh since 1993.
