The Week in brief

By Hpanchal on February 24, 2012
  • Burger Airfreight recently chartered an Antonov An-124 to transport a refrigerator board manufacturing production line weighing 71,000 kilograms to the U.S. The weight and dimensions of the freight meant that the Antonov was the only plane that could take on the project.
  • United Airlines will unveil a daily Boeing 767-300 nonstop route from New York/Newark to Istanbul on July 2.
  • Emirates will launch a second Airbus 340-500 routing from Dubai to Tunis, which will push the routing to once a day. The new flights start on March 25.
  • IJS Global has opened a new office in Stuttgart, Germany. The logistics provider selected Stuttgart for its booming high-tech sector and its proximity to nearly 160,000 businesses.
  • Freight traffic at Belgium’s Liege Airport dropped from 53,653 tonnes to 48,341 tonnes in January, a 9.9 percent, year-over-year, loss. Despite this decline, the number of aircraft movements remained unchanged in January.
  • Avient Aviation has named Globe Air Cargo as its general sales agent in France. In this role, Globe will sell freight capacity to Avient’s France-based customers on its MD-11F and DC-10-30F all-cargo services out of Liège Airport.
