Marketplace Masterstroke: Cathay Pacific Adds 10 747-8 Freighters to Fleet

The “brushwing” logo of Cathay Pacific Airways continues to soar in the cargo market. The leading international air-cargo carrier recently took delivery of its first two 747-8 Freighters, with eight more on the way. Cathay Pacific is the first to operate the new freighter in Asia Pacific. The move reflects the airline’s aggressive commitment to its cargo operations.

Cathay Pacific’s trademark Asian calligraphic brushstroke is a well-known symbol of the airline’s Hong Kong heritage, high standards and soaring aspirations. Similarly, the addition of the newest and biggest Boeing freighter is a powerful expression of the airline’s values and direction. With the new 747-8 Freighters, Cathay Pacific further strengthens Hong Kong’s position as the world’s leading international air cargo hub. The airplane’s superior capacity, range, and operating economics paint a bright future for Cathay Pacific-an airline that obviously understands the art of success.
