Cathay Pacific’s logo, an elegant Asian calligraphic brushstroke, gracefully captures the airline’s soaring aspirations. The airline’s recent order for three more 747-8 Freighters powerfully expresses these aspirations too. Hong Kong’s flag carrier is already a market leader in the air cargo business. Operating from this position of strength, Cathay Pacific continues to renew its freighter fleet with newer, more efficient airplanes.
Selecting the 747-8 is an artful move. The airplane’s superior capacity, range, and operating economics paint competing aircraft into a corner. This latest order bolsters Cathay Pacific’s 747-8 Freighter fleet to 13 airplanes, strengthening the airline’s market-leading position even further. And giving competitors the brush.
