Qantas Freight announces that it is expanding its Freighter network, with the introduction of a twice weekly freighter service to Europe using a Boeing 747-400 Freighter aircraft wet-leased from Atlas Air.
Commencing 16th January, QF7588 will operate from Frankfurt to Sydney via Bombay and Singapore. The new freighter service will strengthen Qantas Freight’s presence in the European market.
Mitch Wild, newly appointed Regional Freight Manager Europe said “The new Frankfurt freighter service will supplement Qantas Freight’s capacity on passenger services from Europe to Australia and Asia and for the first time will allow us to broaden our relationships with the European freight forwarding community.”
To support the expansion in Europe, Qantas Freight has appointed Aircargo Logistics International as its General Sales Agent (GSA) in Italy.
The Boeing 747-400 Freighter offer a capacity of 100,000kg, with 30 main deck and 9 lower deck positions.
