Kalitta Air announces launch of B747-400F scheduled services NY (JFK) – Amsterdam – NY (JFK)

Kalitta Air LLC in co-operation with Wallace Air Cargo Group/Inter Aviation Services (IAS) and HAE Group have announced the launch of twice weekly B747-400F scheduled services routing New York – Amsterdam – New York commencing 09th March 2014

The flights are scheduled to depart JFK on Thursday and Sunday at 01:00 local arriving AMS at 14:15 local, with the return flights departing AMS Friday at 09:15 local and on Sunday at 17:00 local.

HAE and IAS commented “our extensive market research has shown that there is a strong demand for scheduled main-deck B747 freighter services linking the prime commercial hubs of new York and Amsterdam both eastbound and westbound. Our primary focus will be on heavy/outsize cargo suitable for the main-deck such as oil & gas equipment, aircraft engines, project cargo, automotive components and similar types of freight – and we will also be looking at some of the more specialist cargo such as the movement of horses.

Eastbound sales, marketing and reservations will be handled by HAE Group through their network of offices across the USA, while westbound freight sales will continue to be handled by IAS in the Benelux and the existing network of GSA’s across Europe.
