This week Cologne Bonn Airport celebrated the arrival of MNG Airlines’ brand new converted A330-300 P2F and the inaugural flight of the new regular CGN-JFK route. By adding the A330-300 P2F, which can carry up to 63 tonnes per flight, MNG Airlines’ fleet grows to nine freighter units. In late August 2022 a second A330-300 P2F will join the fleet.
With this new widebody aircraft, MNG Airlines strengthen its global network. The expanded capacities also allow MNG Airlines to grow its flight programme at its EU-hub CGN. On top of the regular six times weekly Istanbul-CGN-Istanbul flights MNG Airlines newly introduces a thrice weekly CGN-New York JFK-CGN freighter service.
Sedat Ozkazanc, managing director of MNG Airlines noted: “We are thrilled to reinforce our flight programme in Europe and extend it to New York JFK. We have high expectations about the future of MNG Airlines with this new A330-300 P2F.”
Johan Vanneste, president & CEO Cologne Bonn Airports adds: “We are delighted that our long-time cargo airline partner MNG Airlines is significantly growing its presence at CGN. Especially the German and BeNeLux-exporters will benefit from the new JFK-flights.”
