On November 5, 2016, Senator International launched a new weekly scheduled flight to Greenville/Spartanburg, North Carolina, in the USA. It is the first-ever service from Munich to that airport, and will be operated with an Air Atlanta Icelandic Boeing B747-400F.

Bavaria, with its powerful industrial base and the many companies in the automotive, mechanical engineering, electrical and chemical sectors that rely on the import and export of goods, is a key region in Germany for Senator International. By launching a direct connection to Greenville/Spartanburg – initially with one flight per week – the company is now expanding the services offered to its customers.

“With Munich, we now have our own optimal freight connection between the vital German and US markets for the first time. The hub in southern Germany was a very conscious choice for us. We see enormous potential here, and not only for this region,” said Tim-Oliver Kirschbaum, the managing director of Senator International.

“Serving this new route with a B747-400F is a strong affirmation of Munich’s importance as an airfreight center. Every day, goods originating in Bavaria, other parts of southern Germany, Austria, eastern Europe and northern Italy are flown from our airport to destinations all over the world. We’re looking forward to working together in the coming years with companies like Senator International on the continuing development of Munich Airport as a cargo hub,” said Dr Michael Kerkloh, the CEO of Munich Airport.
