Cargolux is launching a new twice-weekly maindeck transpacific service between Hong Kong (HKG) and Mexico City (MEX).
The new service kicked off on 10 December with a total of 120 tons of cargo on board destined for both Guadalajara and Mexico City, carrying various commodities such as garments, mobile phones and related accessories, as well as electronic appliances.
The service is operated with flights departing from Hong Kong on Saturdays and Mondays to arrive in the Mexican capital on Sundays and Tuesdays. The Monday flight will also include a stopover in Guadalajara (GDL), the country’s second most populous municipality.
For Kevin Shek, Cargolux’s vice-president Asia and Pacific, this new frequency is a boost for the region: “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”.
This new service complements a growing list of transpacific flights originating from Hong Kong. Cargolux already offers westbound flights to six other North American destinations; Chicago, Dallas, Los Angeles, Miami, New York and Rickenbacker.
