Cargoitalia increases services by 50 per cent

CARGOITALIA, Italy’s all-cargo airline, is increasing its schedule by 50 per cent in March with flights to the US and Hong Kong rising to three per week.

The American service will now operate Milan (Malpensa)-New York-Chicago on Wednesdays, Milan-Chicago on Saturdays, and Milan-New York on Sundays.

Flights to Hong Kong will also increase to three-times a week. Tuesday services will route via a new destination, Sharjah, while Thursday and Saturday services will continue to transit Dubai. All inbound flights will maintain their technical stop in Almaty.

Cargoitalia’s commercial director, Roberto Gilardoni, said: “The increase in US services is in direct response to demand. We have also had very positive feedback on our Hong Kong services. The extra flight via Sharjah ties in well with our US-Italy services, providing the US market with efficient transfers to Iraq and Afghanistan.”

Cargoitalia will take delivery of its next aircraft (a third MD-11SF) in June 2010, with further fleet expansion already planned up to 2014.
