With the extra services the airline’s freighter services to Europe will rise from 25 to 36 – an increase of almost 50 percent, further strengthening Hong Kong’s position as one of the world’s leading airfreight hubs.

A total of five flights a week are being added to Frankfurt, operating every Monday, Thursday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday. The extra flights are all routed through Dubai.
