Texel Air Bahrain has deployed a Boeing B737-300 freighter to Auckland, New Zealand to operate charter services for Parceline Express, a subsidiary of Freightways and New Zealand Post.

The freighter arrived in Auckland on Friday March 31 and will fly on a Auckland – Christchurch – Auckland route.

Texel Air Bahrain will continue the charter services until Texel Air NZ Ltd, established in February, commences operations with its B737-800BFC in May this year on the same route.

Headquartered in Auckland, Texel Air NZ provides ACMI and charter services.

Texel Air Bahrain current operates two B737-700 FlexCombi, two B737-800BCF and one B737-300F from Bahrain International Airport.

Established in 2013 by Chisholm Enterprises, Texel Air is an ACMI/charter cargo airline and aircraft maintenance repair organisation (MRO).

In  November last year, Texel Air and Sierra Nevada Corporation (SNC) signed an MoU to form a strategic alliance to develop Middle East and international aviation opportunities.
