Tel Aviv-based CAL Cargo Air Lines has begun a new service from Canada’s Greater Moncton International Airport to Liege, Belgium. The first flight in late-April saw a B747-400F with a full payload of industrial goods and perishable items, and is a manifestation of the company’s 2014 growth strategy, focusing on North America.
This was the first 747 aircraft to land on Greater Moncton International Airport’s newly expanded runway and CAL leveraged its temperature controlled and time sensitive product – CAL Cool – for the perishables. The flight, containing a full payload, then flew to Liege Airport, Belgium, where it was handled by CAL’s wholly owned ground handling agent, LACHS.
Eyal Zagagi, CAL Group CEO said: “CAL is a global player in temperature controlled air freight and this is an exciting new opportunity for us. Our range of products includes a superior product for temperature controlled transportation, applying special techniques to maintain temperature ranges”.
