Air France KLM Martinair Cargo (AFKLMP) has increased operations across its network, following severe disruption over the last few months caused by the global coronavirus outbreak.

The carrier has also increased its flight frequencies to destinations including: Paris Charles de Gaulle to New York, Mexico City, Rio de Janeiro, Conakry, Nouakchott, Bangui, Abidjan, Nairobi, Shanghai and Tokyo. And from Amsterdam Schiphol to New York, Los Angeles, Houston, Toronto, Buenos Aires, Dubai, Mumbai, Bangkok, Singapore, Kuala Lumpur, Manilla, Osaka and Tokyo.

Gertjan Roelands, senior vice president of sales and distribution at AFKLMP, explained: “With the above changes, our regular range of wide-body belly and full-freighter services now includes 304 weekly frequencies to 67 destinations. Based on market demand, we will continue to grow our cargo network by adding frequencies or (re)opening destinations that are relevant for our customers.”
