Qantas gets awarded Korean capacity

AUSTRALIA’S International Air Services Commission has awarded Qantas unlimited cargo capacity and frequency on its Korean route for 10 years.

No other Australian carrier challenged the ruling.

Qantas plans to operate a 747-400 freighter wet leased from Atlas Air on the weekly routing that will take in Sydney-Seoul (Incheon)-Anchorage-Chicago.

Australian airfreight volume came in above expectations in December, an increase of 1.2 per cent to 773.6 million tonnes after falling 2.2 per cent in 2009.
