Travel News Asia Wednesday, 15 November 2006

Gulf Air Cargo has commissioned a series of scheduled freighter charters beginning today, 15 November, in order to meet customers ongoing demand for capacity especially during this traditional peak season.

An A300 aircraft with a 40 tonne capacity has been chartered from ACT Airlines, that will operate on a twice weekly basis between Bahrain/ Chennai/Bangalore/Amsterdam.

It is an important milestone for Gulf Air, said Gulf Air Vice President Business Units Ali Murtada. Traditionally the last quarter of every year is the industrys peak period and Gulf Air has been evaluating how best to provide a solution for our loyal customers during this period.

With the exclusive freighter service, Gulf Air will be able to provide a faster transit time to meet the demand originating from the Asian Sub-Continent and Far East markets to Europe while maintaining the integrity of our service standards.

The Middle East has become an important transit gateway for air cargo traffic linking Europe and the Asia sub-continent and Far East export markets. Gulf Air has the strategic advantage of operating out of two hubs- Bahrain and Muscat- two of the region's dynamically growing markets. 

Both hubs possess well resourced cargo facilities enabling them to comfortably handle freighter operations.
