    The airline's focusing on cargo operations in response to the impacts of coronavirus, with a flight to Shanghai leaving last night carrying premium local exports.

    Chief revenue officer Cam Wallace says there's a lot of cargo demand - and not much competition.

    He says shipments have included food good like fish and honey to Asia, and then also getting medical supplies to market in the Americas.
