MNG Airlines has launched a three times a week freighter service between Germany’s Cologne Bonn airport and New York’s JFK hub.

Turkey-based MNG operated a recently converted Airbus A330-300 freighter for the inaugural JFK flight. The JFK service expands MNG’s freighter schedule at Cologne Bonn, a six times a week service to Istanbul.

By adding the A330-300 P2F, which can carry up to 63 tons, MNG now operates nine freighter aircraft, with a second A330-300 P2F joining the fleet in August 2022.

Sedat Ozkazanc, managing director of MNG Airlines, said: “We are thrilled to reinforce our flight programme in Europe and extend it to New York JFK. We have high expectations about the future of MNG Airlines with this new A330-300 P2F.”

Johan Vanneste, president and chief executive of Cologne Bonn Airports said: “We are delighted that our long-time cargo airline partner MNG Airlines is significantly growing its presence at CGN. Especially, German and BeNeLux-exporters will benefit from the new JFK-flights.”
