Allied Air Cargo leases second MD-11F from World

WORLD Airways has leased a second MD-11 freighter to Allied Air Cargo until December 2011.

Allied Air is a Nigerian all-cargo airline that operates four Boeing 727 freighters in addition to the two MD-11 freighters leased from World Airways. Allied, working through GSA, ANA Aviation Services, carries more than 400 tons per week of fresh flowers and vegetables from both Kenya and Uganda to the Netherlands and the UK.

Allied Air’s chief executive officer, Val Tongo, said: “The expansion of our MD-11F fleet, as well as our investment in the only on-airport secure transit facility, is offering our clients the very highest levels of service, and will make Allied Air a leading African cargo airline of the future.”
