Qantas Freight is to launch new Boeing 767 freighter operations between Australia and New Zealand on 15 June 2009.

 The operation will enable Qantas to retain wide body freight capacity on the route following the introduction of the Qantas Group’s new trans-Tasman passenger schedule.

“The Tasman is one of Qantas Freight’s most important markets and the investment we have made in this new operation reflects the value of our long standing relationships in both countries,” said Executive Manager Qantas Freight, Mr Stephen Cleary. “This is a great solution for customers as it allows us to maintain wide body services and capacity to meet market demand on the route.

The Boeing 767-200 freighter to be used has been wet-leased from global carrier Air Transport International (ATI) and will operate Sydney – Auckland – Christchurch – Sydney overnight on Mondays, Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays under flight numbers QF7523 and QF7524.

 “The aircraft will have a payload of approximately 42 tonnes and will also be made available for charter work and weekend rotations when demand exists,” Mr Cleary added. “We are committed to providing appropriate services to support trans-Tasman trade and will be working closely with the industry to ensure our operations continue to meet the needs of the market.”
