CMA CGM Air Cargo has added two new routes in the US as its second freighter begins operations.
The shipping group-owned airline said that on March 28 it had added a flight from its Liege hub to New York JFK and Atlanta to its network as part of a single route.
The move comes after the carrier put its second of four A330Fs into action.
“CMA CGM Air Cargo’s second Airbus A330-200F will begin regular commercial operations from Liege, Belgium, to New York and Atlanta.
“It completes the existing service between Liege and Chicago. From March 28, with two aircraft deployed between Europe and North America, CMA CGM Air Cargo doubles the offered capacity to better serve our customers on this trade lane.”
The carrier launched services in mid-March when it began offering flights to Chicago O’Hare.
The aircraft, which were previously operated by Qatar Cargo, are being operated by Air Belgium, while ECS is selling capacity in its role as general sales agent.
Part of the aircraft’s capacity is dedicated to CMA CGM’s forwarding subsidiary, CEVA.
