GSSA and charter broker Challenge Air Cargo (CAC) is offering capacity on CAL Cargo Airline’s recently relaunched freighter service between Tel Aviv, Liege and Zhengzhou.
The service operates three-time-per week and the airline said that it hopes to “rapidly grow in frequencies”.
CAC, which along with the airline are both part of the Challenge Group, said that Liege airport is “well situated geographically in Europe and the airport cargo focus attracts the raising e-commerce and postal mail from Asia and US into mainland Europe”.
Measures have been taken to protect against the spread of coronavirus.
“We have taken significant measures to protect our crew members and ground ops teams against COVID-19. We are ready and geared to grow with our customers in mainland China as we can deliver what they expect from the carrier, the extra mile on ground and beyond,” said Offer Gilboa, Challenge Group’s controlling owner.
Challenge Group also includes ACE Belgium Freighters, the recently launched Belgian AOC, and Liege handler LACHS.
The group operates four B747-400 freighters and offers “door-to-door solutions for unique and complex shipments including time/temperature-sensitive cargo such as pharmaceutical and healthcare products, live animals, non-standard size shipments, dangerous goods, perishables, valuables and engines”.
