Air Cargo Germany (ACG) has delayed its planned launch this month, until the second half of February, citing incomplete documentation. Michael Bock, CEO of the Frankfurt-Hahn-based wide-body operator, said there had been a delay in the delivery of the airline¡¯s fleet. This has been caused by ¡°incomplete aircraft documentation and which will be solved within the coming weeks. We now plan to start operations in the second half of next month.¡± The carrier plans to launch charter flights before moving to scheduled services later in the year, likely routes being Hahn-Moscow-Shanghai and Hahn-Istanbul-Bombay-Hong Kong. ACG is leasing two ex-China Airlines B747-400SFs from Avion Aircraft Trading, which were converted to freighter configuration.
