KF Aerospace outlines expansion plans

Canadian cargo airline KF Aerospace – formerly Kelowna Flightcraft – has announced new route structures and a number of strategic partners as it re-enters domestic and international airfreight services.
Initial KF Aerospace routes will include a four times a week DC10-30F service between Toronto and Brussels, with a stop in Greater Moncton International Airport, and a daily B727-200 service between Toronto and Atlantic Canada, again via Greater Moncton.
The network will expand within two months to include western Canada via Vancouver and Calgary, and all of Asia via Anchorage, Alaska.
Based out of Toronto’s Pearson International Airport, the air cargo services will begin on May 30, 2015. The Toronto location gives KF Aerospace the opportunity to offer global connections via interline arrangements.
Barry Lapointe, founder and chief executive of KF Aerospace, said: “For nearly 40 years we have been Canada’s largest cargo operator and have provided over 99% reliability to Purolator and Canada Post overnight courier customers.
“We look forward to providing the same level of regularly scheduled service to Canadian companies reaching into Europe, US, Asia and points beyond”.
Howard Eng, president and chief executive of Greater Toronto Airports Authority (GTA), said: “The introduction of KF Cargo complements our international cargo capacity to offer more opportunities for businesses in North America.”
Steven Polmans, head of cargo at Brussels Airport, said: "Within eight hours trucking from Brussels, you reach three quarters of the European market, and we offer connections to almost every corner of Africa.
“Our central location, efficient services and dedicated handling for perishables and pharmaceuticals will help KF Cargo in realizing their ambitions.”
Kales Airline Services is the general sales agents (GSA) for KF Aerospace in Europe and "elsewhere".
