CAL Cargo Airlines has added Puerto Rico and Italy to its network with services to San Juan and Rome from 15 September.
The service will operate on a Tel Aviv – Liege – New York John F. Kennedy – San Juan – Rome – Liege – Tel Aviv route with trucking connections to other European and US destinations. CAL says it expects to expand the service in the next few months.
CAL Cargo Airlines chairman and chief executive officer, Offer Gilboa says: “We’re thrilled to open the flights to SJU. We recently added a third B747-400 freighter to our fleet, and now with SJU we are continuing our momentum to expand our network throughout the Americas.”
He adds: “Our entire infrastructure is built to provide a rapid solution for the complex cargo, time and temperature sensitive goods such as Pharma, being our no. 1 product.”
“We identified SJU as a hub for this kind of cargo transport, which is why we targeted it as our next destination. Given our equipment, team and experience, CAL is uniquely positioned to support the needs of the local catchment area.”
