Cathay Pacific Airways will start operating an international weekly scheduled air cargo service out of Brisbane West Wellcamp Airport from next month. The service between Toowoomba and Hong Kong – Southern Queensland’s only scheduled international air freight-only service – will start on November 22.
The opportunities this creates for Queensland exporters to benefit from Australia’s free trade agreements and to access the world’s biggest consumer markets are unlimited.
The reality for the agricultural and processing sectors is produce like chilled beef and other perishables will be able to fly direct to Asia from the region in which they are produced, creating both valuable first mile and cool chain efficiencies, and enabling significant capacity for the growth of trade.
The Toowoomba based operation has 72 domestic regular passenger transport services in and out of the airport every week.
