Cathay Pacific Cathay Pacific Cargo is pleased to announce the return of its freighter service to Toowoomba Wellcamp Airport in southern Queensland.

The first flight departed today, 3 August 2022, marking the recommencement of the service after it was put on hold in December 2021.

The once-weekly service is operated by a Boeing 747-8F and will transport high-quality fresh produce from local shippers and deliver directly to Hong Kong and key Asian markets.

Cathay Pacific Regional Head of Cargo Nigel Chynoweth said: “This is an exciting step forward for Cathay Pacific Cargo as we re-introduce this service with strong support from local shippers in the region.

“It’s also a great opportunity to showcase Hong Kong as one of the world’s leading international airfreight hubs while increasing demand for Australia’s agricultural products.”

Damian Bell, Executive Manager of Wagner Corporation – Toowoomba Wellcamp Airport said “Alongside Cathay Pacific Cargo, we are thrilled to continue to support local and surrounding regions and assist with the growing demand for local fresh fruit and veg exports through our world-class facilities”
