Coyne Airways 2nd service to Tbilisi
23 / 06 / 2009
COYNE Airways is adding a second weekly Boeing 747-400 freighter service to its hub in Tbilisi with effect from 1 July, 2009.
In addition to its existing flight every Monday from London Stansted and Cologne to Tbilisi, Coyne has signed an agreement with Jade Cargo for further B747-400 capacity each Wednesday from Frankfurt to the Georgian capital.
The new flight will depart Frankfurt at 23.00 hrs and arrive in Tbilisi at 05.00 hours local. Coyne will offer trucking connections throughout continental Europe as well as the UK.
Larry Coyne (right), chief executive officer, said: “Customers remain loyal to Coyne Airways because we maintain our schedule year-round and they trust us to always make available the right level of capacity at a highly competitive price. That is what we are doing again with this expansion having listened to their requests for a mid-week service.
“Operating from Frankfurt allows quicker connections from Coyne Airways’ interline partners flying from North America so that cargo leaving the USA for Frankfurt on Tuesday evening can connect with our next day departure to Tbilisi. We are delighted to be working with such a strong partner as Jade Cargo, given its reputation for service excellence and proven commitment to quality.
“Operating from London Stansted, Cologne and now Frankfurt makes it easy for customers around the world to connect with our services to the Caspian with freight moved from origin points on a single airwaybill. With the early morning arrival of 747F flights in Tbilisi, we can make freight available locally the same day and next day in Aktau, Atyrau, Uralsk, Baku and Yerevan, as well as in Ashgabat and Turkmenbashi in Turkmenistan,” he added.
