To meet additional demand ahead of Valentine’s Day, Network Airline Management has transported over 1200 tonnes of freshly cut flowers from Nairobi, Kenya into Europe.

During this year’s “Valentine’s Rush” in the first two weeks of February, Network reports it operated a total of 12 B747F flights, including four additional flights due to the high demand, carrying approximately 1260 tonnes of flowers in total.

With Network’s Nairobi office overseeing the entire operation, each ‘flower charter’ flight was loaded to max payload with 105 tonnes of freshly cut flowers, including Pink/Red Roses mixed with Carnations, ready for onward trucking across Europe into various major cities such as London, Paris, and Rome upon arrival.

Network Airline Management’s commercial director, Andy Walters said, “2022 has been another very successful Valentine’s season for us and we’re extremely happy to maintain our role in supporting the Kenyan flower industry once again.”
