Cargolux extends route network to Africa’s Mali


Cargolux Airlines International has begun a weekly service to Bamako, the capital of Mali, from 5 December 2013. The flights are operated with the airline’s B747 freighters which offer main deck capacity for the transport of airfreight supplies that support the local industries in the areas of natural resources, telecommunications, healthcare and pharmaceutical products, perishables and general appliances. In 2010, Bamako Airport inaugurated a new cargo terminal with a yearly capacity of 10,000 tonnes and extended the runway to 3,180 meters, enabling the operation of large aircraft, such as Cargolux’s B747 freighters.
