Network Airline Management has opened two flights a week between Liege, Belgium and Johannesburg, South Africa.
The Boeing 747F services operate on days 4 and 7 with the first flight taking to the sky on 29 September.
The route opens up road feeder services from South Africa’s main city to onward destinations including Gaborone, Harare, Lusaka, Walvis Bay, Windhoek and other locations.
Neil Ledingham, customer service manager at the London Gatwick Airport headquarters says: “We are delighted to be announcing this new scheduled service into Johannesburg and offering even more regular destinations for our customers. This new routing could potentially see more than 200 tonnes of cargo transported every week!”
