Poste Air Cargo expands network and takes off for Tel Aviv


Poste Air Cargo is spreading its wings from April 10, with the launch of a new weekly cargo flight to Tel Aviv.

The new route for the Poste Italiane Group’s cargo airline, which already boasts a widespread network throughout Italy, above all serving the country’s south and islands, forms part of plans to expand the airline’s international footprint. The aim is to strengthen the airline’s presence in the Mediterranean air cargo market. Flights to the Israeli city will be weekly, leaving Fiumicino’s Leonardo da Vinci airport every Saturday.

Tel Aviv is Poste Air Cargo’s first scheduled international destination, offering a logistics solution for importers and exporters needing to ship goods between Italy and Israel. The flights will provide a direct connection for both high-value products (pharmaceuticals, aerospace equipment and perishables) and other types of air freight. The air link to Tel Aviv offers both markets direct main-deck capacity solely for cargo use.

Poste Air Cargo provides annual main-deck capacity of 825,000 kg/500 pallets /7,500 cubic meters. Poste Air Cargo, with forty years of experience in the air transport sector, operates a domestic network of overnight flights for Poste Italiane, connecting seven Italian airports with the Hub at Brescia Montichiari.

Poste Air Cargo also operates in the international air cargo charter market, primarily providing support for automotive logistics. Poste Air Cargo’s fleet has been renewed with the addition of two B737-400Fs, increasing the number of aircraft in the fleet to seven.
