3/22/2014 9:12:12 AM

   Hong Kong-based Cathay Pacific Airways has officially started its twice-weekly Boeing 747-8 freighter service into Columbus, Ohio’s Rickenbacker International Airport when the first aircraft lands at 5 p.m. Friday.

   Columbus will be Cathay’s 12th freighter destination in North America.

   “Our 13 Boeing 747-8F freighters are the ideal aircraft to link Hong Kong with the Americas, giving a reliable and fuel-efficient service to our customers,” said James Woodrow, Cathay Pacific cargo director, in a statement.

   Cathay will operate the Columbus service on a Hong Kong – AnchorageColumbusNew York (JFK) – VancouverHong Kong routing every Wednesday and Friday.

   Early this month, the airline launched a thrice-weekly scheduled freighter service to Mexico City. Cathay also recently took delivery of its 13th Boeing 747-8F freighter, with one more expected for delivery in 2016.
