10 / 11 / 2016
Senator International has launched a Boeing 747-400 freighter that will serve the US South Carolina hub of Greenville Spartanburg (GSP) with flights out of Munich and Frankfurt-Hahn airports in Germany.
The Germany-based logistics operator said that its “Atlantic Bridge” will use an Air Atlanta Icelandic freighter, with Globe Air Cargo responsible for the marketing of available cargo space.
Senator said that a “neutral processing of shipments is guaranteed”.
The logistics operator added in a statement on its website: “We are pleased that this product is being well accepted in the market which has been reflected by the amount of bookings we have received thus far.
“Between flight days the aircraft will also be available for charter flights, which is a service that the company Chapman Freeborn, specialized in aircraft chartering, will be marketing.
“We would like to thank everyone who supports this new connection. Special thanks go to the representatives of Munich Airport, LUG in Munich, Hahn Airport, VG Cargo at Hahn Airport, Chapman Freeborn, Globe Air Cargo and Greenville Spartanburg Airport.”
Welcoming the freighter call, Frankfurt-Hahn Airport management said: “The aircraft will be furthermore marketed for Ad-hoc charter flights – which offers potential for further freight orders from the Rhein-Main area.”
The airport’s senior vice president cargo, Roger Scheifele, said: “Many companies of the automobile industry are located in the area around South and North Carolina, they will be using this service. Another weekly direct connection is set up between Munich Airport and the US.
“For the remaining time – exactly three days a week – the Boeing 747-400F will remain stationed at Hahn and be marketed exclusively by the charter broker Chapman Freeborn."
