Rickenbacker exports to Asia and Europe


Rickenbacker International Airport will begin seeing exports directly through New York (US) on to Hong Kong (China) and Luxembourg from September.

Cathay Pacific and Cargolux offer three times a week services from Hong Kong International Airport (HKIA) with US bound imports and beginning this month will begin uplifting export traffic from Rickenbacker.

The new Rickenbacker services will allow shippers to load exports onto aircraft that have arrived from John F. Kennedy Airport and are bound to HKIA with Cathay Pacific, with a similar service to be offered for Luxembourg Airport using Cargolux in the near future. Consolidated Aviation Services (CAS) will offer import and export warehouse services, the airport said.

“This new export loading capability allows shippers and their logistics service providers the ability to load cargo directly in Columbus offering connections to Asia and Europe that have never been served directly out of this market,” said president and chief executive officer (CEO) of the Columbus Regional Airport Authority, which operates Rickenbacker.

Amerijet International also started flights from Rickenbacker from 8 July, linking it to its Reno hub for coast-to-coast services.
