COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) - A Hong Kong-based cargo airline plans a twice-weekly service to a central Ohio airport starting this month.

The Columbus Regional Airport Authority and Cathay Pacific Airways say the service to Rickenbacker International Airport in Columbus airport will begin March 21.

Cathay Pacific says Rickenbacker will be the airline’s 12th freighter destination in North America. Cathay Pacific officials say the airline will operate the Columbus service on a Hong Kong-Anchorage-Columbus-New York-Vancouver-Hong Kong circuit every Wednesday and Friday, using its newest and largest Boeing 747-8F freighter aircraft.

Cathay Pacific currently operates cargo services to 11 destinations in North America and flies to 43 freighter destinations around the world

Airport authority CEO Elaine Roberts says the new service will benefit the whole region.
