Virgin Australia flying cargo on Melbourne-HK route
With effect from 5 July 2017, Virgin Australia will operate five Airbus A330-200 flights a week on the Melbourne – Hong Kong route. Each flight will offer 14 t of cargo capacity.
Virgin Atlantic Cargo will be responsible for selling all of the capacity on these flights, extending its long-haul international sales contract with Virgin Australia, which also includes its operations connecting Sydney, Brisbane and Melbourne with Los Angeles CA (USA).
Virgin Australia Cargo’s chief executive, Merren McArthur: "We expect a good level of growth this year with the addition of our new routes from Melbourne to Los Angeles and Hong Kong. We have great confidence in Virgin Atlantic’s ability to maximise the potential of our growing long haul international network." (ah)
