Air France KLM Martinair Cargo expands airfreight services

By Rachelle Harry

Air France KLM Martinair Cargo (AFKLMP) is expanding its cargo services by adding new destinations, frequencies and improved charter solutions.

This week AFKLMP increased its flight frequency to Johannesburg, Bangkok, Beijing and Shanghai.

In the coming weeks, the carrier will restore operations to Houston and increasing flight frequency to Bamako, Ouagadougou, Chicago, Toronto, Dubai, Hong Kong and Singapore.

AFKLMP said in a statement: “Our summer network is supported by our regular full-freighter services. From Paris Charles de Gaulle, we operate to Dublin, Djibouti, Nairobi, Antananarivo, Reunion, Chicago and Shanghai. From Amsterdam Airport Schiphol, we offer service to Buenos Aires, Sao Paulo, Lima, Bogotá, Guatemala, Quito, Miami, Harare, Nairobi, Johannesburg and Cairo.

“It is our priority that we are able to repatriate passengers to their home countries. We also need to ensure that medical equipment, facemasks, medicines, foodstuffs and other essential commodities can be efficiently transported.

“To do so, Air France and the French government have set up an air bridge between Shanghai and Paris. In the Netherlands, a similar initiative was undertaken by the Dutch government, Philips and KLM. Meanwhile, it is essential to ensure that our customers have access to regular and specialised cargo services.”

Gertjan Roelands, senior vice president of sales and distribution for AFKLPM, added: “We are in very close contact with our customers to ensure that we adjust our network and services to their needs.”

AFKLMP is also offering new charter services on its long-haul routes, utilising passenger aircraft.

The carrier explained: “You can now submit charter requests via a special form on our website. We have a dedicated charter sales and services team to following up on customer requests and queries. With these new initiatives, we aim to offer the best possible standard of service for this specific product.”
