Air Hong Kong has been busy gearing up -
for a well needed boost in regional air freight capacity - with the
dry-lease of three Boeing 747-400 BCFs from Cathay Pacific Airways.
All three BCF aircraft will be painted in AHK's distinctive yellow and white livery.
The first BCF aircraft began operations on 29 May 2011 - carrying DHL
express consignments - and some CX general freight - on the key Hong
Kong/Singapore vv route.
The second BCF aircraft will begin operations in early July 2011 on
the Hong Kong/ Narita vv route, while the third BCF aircraft will enter
service early September 2011 and operate Hong Kong/Pudong (Shanghai) vv.
The extra capacity will help AHK consolidate its position on these
three key routes and will - at the same time - free up AHK Airbus
A300-600F's allowing the company to upgrade other sectors currently
being operated by wet-leased aircraft.
AHK's fleet of eight A300-600F's is currently being supplemented by
two wet-leased Boeing 727Fs from Transmile, flying Hong Kong/Manila vv
and Hong Kong/ Beijing vv.
AHK is actively looking at opportunities to add frequencies and
extend its network, which currently numbers 12 destinations including
