Freighter manager Network Airline Management has expanded its fleet with the addition of a fourth Boeing 747 freighter.

A company spokesperson said that all four of its freighters  – two 747-400Fs and two 747-400BCFs – are wet-leased from Air Atlanta Icelandic.

The additional aircraft will join the fleet based at Network’s European hub, Liege – Belgium, and will allow NAM to further expand its scheduled and charter operations.

Malcolm Higginson, Network Aviation Group’s operations director, said: “The delivery of our latest nose-loading B747F aircraft is a significant milestone in NAM’s fleet expansion plans.

“We have steadily grown and modernised our fleet since starting operations over 35 years ago, and we are confident this additional aircraft will allow us to further increase our capacity and improve resilience to better serve our increasing portfolio of customers.”

The carrier previously also listed two MD-11Fs from Western Global and three B737-400Fs in its fleet. 

While these aircraft are no longer included in the fleet, the spokesperson said that they are available to NAM through its partners if required.
