Kalitta Air starts B747-400F services to New York

KALITTA AIR, in co-operation with Wallace Air Cargo Group/Inter Aviation Services and HAE Group, is to launch a twice-weekly B747-400F scheduled service to New York (JFK) from March.
The new route – New York-Amsterdam-New York – is expected to capitalise on the strong demand for scheduled main-deck B747 freighter services linking the prime commercial hubs of New York and Amsterdam, both eastbound and westbound, says a statement.  
“Our primary focus will be on heavy/outsize cargo suitable for the main-deck such as oil and gas equipment, aircraft engines, project cargo, automotive components and similar types of freight. We will also be looking at some of the more specialist cargo such as the movement of horses,” a spokesperson for the companies adds.
