Cargolux connects Hong Kong with Mexico


Cargolux Airlines International has opened a new transpacific route to connect Hong Kong with Mexico City twice a week.

The flights were launched on 10 December, leaving Hong Kong on Saturdays and Mondays, arriving in Mexico City on Sundays and Tuesdays.

The Monday flight will include a stopover in Guadalajara, the country’s second most populous municipality.

The inaugural flight on 10 December had 120 tons of cargo on board, which Cargolux says bodes well for the connection that carries commodities including garments, mobile phones and accessories, as well as electronic appliances.

Kevin Shek, vice president Asia and Pacific for Cargolux says: “We are delighted to have added another transpacific connection out of Hong Kong. Mexico is a rapidly growing economy and serving it directly from East Asia will enable for faster and more efficient exchanges of goods.”

The service compliments existing transpacific services from Hong Kong to Chicago, Dallas, Los Angeles, Miami, New York and Rickenbacker.
