To increase links with the European vaccine production hub, Cathay Pacific Cargo is adding additional capacity to operate on the pharma corridor between the Belgian capital and Hong Kong.
The extra cargo flights are planned until June and the schedule will be adapted to market demand and the latest developments.
Cathay Pacific head of cargo Europe, Jansen Stafford said: “While for now this is a temporary addition to our cargo network to respond to market demand, today’s news is a boost to the entire cargo, engineering and airport teams who have worked extremely hard to display our Cathay spirit and can-do attitude. We look forward to coming back to Brussels and support the market demand of Belgium and beyond.”
“With the growing number of vaccines produced, Belgium confirms its position as important location for vaccines producers. Brussels Airport is proud to contribute to the logistics of Covid-19 vaccines to all parts of the world, and very happy to welcome Cathay Pacific again, reconnecting the two Pharma CEIV certified centres with each other.” added Geert Aerts, director cargo & logistics, Brussels Airport Company.
