Aeroflot add Almaty

AERFLOT Cargo has launched a new weekly DC10 freighter service from Frankfurt Hahn to Almaty, Kazakhstan via Moscow.

The first departure, on 15 April, operated with a full 55 tonne payload, of which 40 tonnes was destined for Almaty. The airline is already looking at introducing a second frequency by early May.

Aeroflot Cargo’s German GSSA Transnautic Aero, has established a domestic trucking programme in Kazakhstan that provides airport-door services to any destination within 24-48 hours.

Transnautic director, Hendrik Boeyng, said: “Our ability to offer service to the door, means we are already luring cargo away from other airlines who cannot provide this important facility.

“We expect huge volumes of cargo on this new service – particularly electrical and electronic equipment, automotive spares and textiles. There is also significant available traffic for Astana, following the relocation of Lufthansa’s hub from Astana to Krasnoyarsk.”
