Cathay Pacific carries its heaviest-ever cargo shipment

22 Mar 2010

Cathay Pacific Airways moved its heaviest-ever single piece of cargo on 21 March, uploading a 43 tonne piece of specialist oil rig drilling equipment onto one of its Boeing 747 freighters. The equipment was being shipped from Houston, Texas, to Incheon Airport in Seoul, Korea. The airline launched its freighter service to Houston and Miami in March 2009, operating three flights a week. A fourth service - to Miami only - is being added due to strong demand on the route.
