CAL launches Atlanta to Liege route

CAL Cargo Airlines at Liege Airport

CAL Cargo Airlines has announced a new round-trip service from Atlanta, Georgia (US), to Liege Airport in Belgium.

The service includes two weekly rotations, with the first flight set to depart from Liege on 25 September.

CAL Group chief executive officer, Eyal Zagagi, says: “CAL’s fleet of (Boeing) 747-400 with nose door and team of specialty experts in DG (dangerous goods), pharma, live animals and oversize/overweight goods combine to answer the unique needs of the Atlanta catchment area.

“Until today, Atlanta was an offline station, with service to/from the European Union via our JFK (New York) operation. We found that the Atlanta catchment area has great potential for us, so to improve the service we offer to this market we are adding Atlanta as an additional online station.

“This is another step in our growth strategy, strengthening our US network and foothold and we look forward to increasing our presence throughout the year.”

CAL Cargo Airlines services the Atlanta catchment area together with local general sales agent (GSA) ATC Aviation.
