The flights, which are being operated three times per week using a Boeing 767-300 freighter aircraft, enable cargo to be distributed from Frankfurt to onward destinations in Europe, as well as extending Senator’s Atlantic Bridge (SAB) product.

“Additionally, by including Europe within MasAir’s online schedule, we are finally able to enter a market that has been widely demanded by our customers around the world.”

Tim-Oliver Kirschbaum, chief executive of Senator International, added: “MasAir is the best partner for these flights to and from Mexico, as they are a reliable, experienced operator and have a very strong presence in the market.

“By serving an important market with a dedicated controlled capacity, Senator is able to extend its SAB, product and offer a stable and reliable service to it’s customers. 

“Meanwhile it connects Greenville Spartanburg, Chicago Rockford International, Frankfurt, Frankfurt Hahn, Singapore, Johannesburg and now also Mexico City. In total, 24 flights per week.”
