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. Th is 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.
