Cathay Cargo organises ‘Wings of Excellence’ – Nepal Celebrations

Cargo Awards Night celebrates key partners from Nepal

Cathay Cargo, a global leader in the cargo industry, hosted the “Wings of Excellence” – Nepal Celebrations, on Sunday, 8 October 2023, at the Kathmandu Marriott Hotel. The event not only celebrated the company’s skilled employees who through their expertise deliver on Cathay Cargo’s inspiring tagline, “We Know How”; but more importantly also acknowledged the invaluable trust and the unwavering support from Cathay Cargo’s key shippers, freight forwarders and ground handlers (GHA’s), from Nepal

This marked the first Wings of Excellence event since the onset of the pandemic. Cathay Regional Head of Cargo, South Asia Middle East and Africa Rajesh Menon was in attendance to extend his appreciation to Cathay Cargo’s essential stakeholders.

Additionally, the event witnessed the launch of Cathay Cargo’s new brand campaign “We Know How” that focuses on the innovation, people, solutions and service – as well as the “magic” – that are central to Cathay Cargo.

Speaking at the event, Rajesh Menon said: “It’s truly an honour to connect with our partners from Nepal whose enthusiasm and trust have greatly enriched our working relationship, and I am excited about the possibilities that lie ahead as we continue to collaborate. Our collective adaptability, collaboration, and openness for innovation have propelled us to become the preferred cargo solutions partner for shipping Nepal’s world-class handicrafts to the world. As we navigate the path to the new normal, we must remember that our shared commitment to upholding our brand promise will steer us through the next phase of growth.”


Country Manager, Nepal, Junu Maleku said: “We presently utilise the existing cargo belly capacity of the three weekly flights departing from Kathmandu. Effective November 2023, we will increase our capacity to four flights per week. The ‘Wings of Excellence’ celebrates and acknowledges our exceptional partners who have been instrumental in our achievements. We remain bullish on the Nepal market and anticipate the continued support of our stakeholders in driving the forthcoming phase of growth.”
