July 05, 2018: Network Airline Management (NAM), a division of the Network Aviation Group and Kenya-based cargo airline Astral Aviation have added a B747-400BCF to their managed fleet.
NAM has wet leased the freighter aircraft from Air Atlanta Icelandic and joins the B747-400F nose loader also supplied by the Icelandic carrier. This further compliments the two MD11Fs on wet lease from Western Global Airlines.
The B747-400BCF adds much needed extra capacity to NAM’s fleet to further expand routes on NAM’s scheduled network, as well as charter capacity worldwide.
Andy Leslie, Group chairman, says, “We are excited to take delivery of the B747-400BCF further expanding our managed fleet and partnership with Air Atlanta Icelandic.”
“This additional capacity enables us to further develop our presence in Africa and our existing scheduled network.”
The B747-400BCF is being delivered to NAM’s European hub in Liege, Belgium, and being put to work immediately flying on its scheduled network to Africa.
