10 / 05 / 2021
Freighter firm Network Airline Management transported more than 1,000 tonnes of freshly cut flowers — from Nairobi, Kenya into Europe — during the run up to International Mother’s Day.
The 2021 schedule saw four B747 freighter flights operate each week, as well as an extra flight to fulfil this year’s demand.
The company said that each aircraft was fully loaded with 100 tonnes of fresh-cut flowers bound for Liege, including Roses and Carnations, ready for onward trucking across Europe into various destinations such as Berlin, Copenhagen and Helsinki.
Sam Lindsey, senior commercial manager, said: “We are pleased to have successfully supported our key clients during the International Mother’s Day rush and are extremely happy to maintain our role in supporting the Kenyan flower industry.”
