Cathay Pacific Begins Construction of Cargo Terminal at HKIA
Cathay Pacific Airways has begun the construction of its cargo terminal at the Hong Kong International Airport.
In March 2008, the airport authority had awarded Cathay Pacific's wholly owned subsidiary, Cathay Pacific Services, a franchise to invest in, design, construct and operate the new air cargo terminal at the Hong Kong International Airport (HKIA) under a 20-year agreement.
Tony Tyler, CEO of Cathay Pacific, said: "Without a concerted effort to improve our capacity and our competitiveness, our hub would face serious challenges. The need for more capacity is clear and we will get that capacity when the Cathay Pacific Cargo Terminal begins operation."
