Polar Air Cargo Worldwide’s inaugural flight to Changi Airport landed on 16 August local time adding the Asia Pacific airport to its route network.
This adds to Changi’s freighter network, the US city of Cincinnati. Polar will operate a weekly Cincinnati–Anchorage–Incheon–Singapore–Hong Kong service with a Boeing 747 Freighter.
Singapore is the first South East Asian destination for Polar Air Cargo. The new freighter service connects DHL Express’ South Asia hub in Singapore to its Cincinnati and Hong Kong (China) global hubs, as part of the integrator’s multi-hub strategy to strengthen its market position in Asia. Polar Air Cargo‘s owners are DHL Network Operations and Atlas Air Worldwide Holdings.
Polar Air Cargo Worldwide executive vice president and chief operating officer, Robert Hyslop, says: “We are pleased to begin flying to Changi Airport. With the addition of this route, we continue to expand our global reach.”
Last month, Polar Air Cargo owner Atlas Air reported a second quarter result that was almost double the revenues of the same period last year.
