Maleth Aero aims at express cargo market


Maleth Aero has placed its first cargo capable aircraft into service as it looks into entering the express market.

The aircraft, a Boeing 737-300QC has been flying ad-hoc summer passenger charters around Europe but the Malta based company hopes to use it in the express cargo market. Maleth Aero says Malta’s position makes it a natural gateway for connecting North Africa and Europe.

Maleth Aero chief executive officer, Michael O’Brien says: “We are very pleased to have taken delivery of our latest Boeing 737 Classic and our first QC variant. While we have initially operated the QC in a passenger configuration, we are actively seeking work for her in the express cargo market going forward.”

“In addition to this unique asset, we are looking at bringing into play a dedicated -400F unit later in the year. With our growing Boeing fleet, cargo is expected to play a very important part of our future business plans.”
