Cargo schedule and fleet changes ahead
Posted 16 May 2020
New schedules will go live for our Cargo division on June 1st with some route expansion and additional fleet as demand for Cargo increases.
The re-worked schedules move to a point to point system from the hub and spoke of the past. This will give many more multi leg options reflecting real world cargo ops as well as expanding operational choice. Both the narrow-body and heavy cargo fleet get a wider mix of routes throughout Europe and Worldwide, including for the first time transatlantic ops for the 757. South American and African multi leg also routes return.
With the increase in services the Cargo fleet will need extra aircraft. Two 777 and two 747-400's will transfer from our passenger division as freight conversions. We have also leased two additional 747-8f.
To back fill the older fleet transitioning to Cargo, we have agreed terms to purchase four Boeing 747-8i which have become surplus from a European operator.
Ad-hoc movement flights for these fleet transfers and conversions will be available from 00:00z 17/05.
