Airfreight wholesaler Air Menzies International (AMI) is the latest company to introduce a weekly charter flight.

The service, starting on April 4, will operate between Los Angeles International and Sydney International utilising a Boeing 787-9 aircraft with a capacity of 34 tonnes.

AMI said it had decided to launch the service in response to passenger airlines cutting services because of the coronavirus outbreak.

AMI vice president – Americas Tibor Fodelmesi said: “During these uncertain and unprecedented times, it was vital that AMI played its part in ensuring cargo continues to flow to where it needs to go.

“Our customers can now get exclusive access to guaranteed capacity on this weekly charter and bring some certainty to them in a very challenging market.”

Chief executive Jonathan Clark added: “The Covid-19 has brought huge disruption to the industry and whilst chartering aircraft is not a core service we offer; we are certainly no stranger to the concept. When Tibor and I first discussed the possibility, we were both very excited to be able to offer this to our customers during these difficult times.”
