Air Europa launches dedicated cargo operation

Spanish carrier Air Europa is to offer a new global airfreight product under its own wing from November 1.
The airline’s cargo service is currently outsourced, but it is now establishing its own Air Europa Cargo business.
The airline said that it will “directly manage a network of air cargo terminals and handling agents through the bases it operates from”.
It added that it hopes this change will provide new commercial opportunities for the carrier, a specialist in flying to Latin America.
As well as flying general cargo, Air Europa Cargo said that has adapted aircraft cargo holds to meet the requirements for transporting temperature-sensitive goods, such as fruit, pharmaceutical products and animals.
Air Europa operates a fleet of Boeing 787 ‘Dreamliner’ aircraft, Airbus A330s, B737-800s and Embraer 195s.
