ACG Air Cargo Germany has commenced twice weekly flights to Johannesburg, South Africa with a B747- 400F connecting Hahn airport to O R Tambo International Airport, the main gateway of South Africa’s economic and financial centre. The aircraft was fully loaded carrying 105 tonnes southwards on its maiden flight. Outbound the aircraft will land in Tripoli for fuel stops and on their northbound routes the freight planes stop over at Nairobi’s Jomo Kenyatta International for cargo loading of flowers and other perishables for European consumers in addition to the shipments loaded in South Africa. “Thanks to a number of binding blocked space agreements numerous logistics providers have signed the payload of our Johannesburg services will be significant over a foreseeable period of time,” said ACG’s CEO Michael Bock. The remaining capacity will be marketed by Frankfurt-based GSA Sky Reps Aviation Services GmbH.
