Coyne Airways has added an additional once weekly flight to its weekly B747-400 Afghanistan service which began on 14 September. The additional capacity comprises an IL-76 freighter and similarly flies into Bagram. “We hope to increase the service to twice weekly within six months,” Coyne CEO, Larry Coyne said. “Our ability to deliver cargo to Afghanistan and Iraq from anywhere in the world on a single air waybill, using leading interline partners feeding into our Dubai hub, is a reliable link that now forms a vital part of the supply chains of major corporations.” In Afghanistan, Coyne Airways serves Kabul, Kandahar and Camp Bastion, as well as Bagram. It also provides transport services to other cities, military camps and forward operating bases in Afghanistan including Heart, Mazar-e Sharif, Camp Leatherneck, Jalalabad and Sharana. In Iraq, Coyne offers freighter services to Baghdad, Balad, Erbil and Sulaymaniyah, and can arrange onward transportation to other destinations such as Basra, Mosul, Tikrit and Kirkuk.
