Cathay ends Manchester freighter flights, opts for passenger bellyholds

6/19/2014 8:16:12 AM

HONG KONG's Cathay Pacific has stopped freighter flights into Manchester because too much freight has been taken by passenger planes, which makes all-cargo planes economically unviable, said company cargo chief James Woodrow.

Mr Woodrow said the airline was still operating twice-weekly freighters to London Heathrow as well as freight services in passenger liner bellyholds to Manchester.

"We have excellent frequency from Heathrow in our passenger belly, and with BA already pulling out their B747-8 freighters, we offer a competitive main-deck nose-door product ex-Heathrow," he said.

"With five B777-300ERs per day - 100 tonnes per day of cargo capacity - and two freighters per week, Cathay Pacific has 900-1,000 tonnes of capacity per week into and out of the UK.
