AV Cargo Airlines has introduced the first of three planned additional MD11 freighters into its fleet.
The aircraft will operate its inaugural flight April 30. Afterward, it will begin scheduled services into Africa to key cities including Lagos, Nigeria; Bamako, Mali; Entebbe, Uganda; Port Harcourt, Nigeria; Pointe-Noire, Republic of the Congo; Freetown, Sierra Leone; and Pemba Island.
“With the first aircraft in service, we will commence building our scheduled services,” Simon Clarke, CEO of AV Cargo, said. “The additional capacity will enable us to increase the number of destinations served as we expand our reach across the African continent. This is a pleasing and proud occasion for AV Cargo and another milestone achieved.”
