Finnair Cargo adds capacity to Belgium
Two months after launching service from New York's John F. Kennedy International Airport to Brussels Airport, Finnair Cargo will grow its Belgium operations even more. Beginning 6 June, Finnair Cargo will increase airfreight capacity to and from Brussels Airport, its newest freight hub.
In addition to the MD-11 freighter service between Helsinki Airport and Brussels on Saturdays and Sundays, Finnair's passenger flight to and from Brussels on Thursday mornings will now be flown with an Airbus A340 aircraft.
"This enables us to offer fast transport between Central Europe and Asia also for large shipments," says Mikko Turtiainen, Finnair Cargo's vice president of global sales and marketing. "We hope that our customers find this service enhancement useful."
Finnair Cargo officials are also optimistic about the carrier's US routes, particularly the new service to New York. The route, which launched on 5 April, offers prime eastbound and westbound connections, company executives assert. Finnair Cargo also recently added service to Chicago; the latter route, which commenced on 7 April and is operated via Brussels, returns from Chicago to Finnair's primary Helsinki hub every Monday.
"Eastbound, the service from Brussels hub offers fast and same-day freighter connection to Hong Kong and enables connections to Finnair´s Asian destinations," Finnair Cargo officials add.
