ACE Belgium Freighters has received its Air Operator’s Certificate as it gets ready to operate scheduled and charter services from Liege Airport.
The airline received the certificate on 18 April from the Belgian Civil Aviation Authority and will start commercial cargo operations with scheduled flights to New York JFK and plans to provide charter services.
The fleet consists of one Boeing 747-400BCF, OO-ACE, and a second aircraft will join the fleet within the year, according to the airline’s LinkedIn account.
ACE’s commercial entity, Challenge Air Cargo will manage selling capacity, which has already opened offices in France, the Netherlands and Belgium, with another one planned for Germany.
ACE says it represents “a real opportunity” for the Belgian airline industry, saying: “Located at the crossroad of Amsterdam, Paris and Frankfurt, this strategic position allows our company to establish a considerable number of destinations.”
The airline adds: “Through our experienced team, the ACE goal is to build strong partnerships with our customers and to ensure maximum reliability and punctuality within a flight network.”
