Nov 01, 2018: On October 31, UK-based network solutions provider Bridges Worldwide has introduced new five times weekly freighter service linking Cologne Bonn Airport (CGN) with Malta and Larnaca, Cyprus.
The new route is operated with Boeing 737-400F of the Spanish cargo specialist Swiftair with a payload of 20 tonnes per flight.
“With the introduction of this new route Bridges Worldwide is meeting the increasing uplift demands of the express cargo carriers and the German forwarder community. Furthermore we are offering for the first time direct main deck capacity for the booming fish and perishable exports from Cyprus to Western Europe,” says Guy Bridges, CEO of Bridges Worldwide.
“The introduction of this new high frequency freighter link shows clearly the great cargo potential of CGN and the CGN cargo catchment area”, says Johan Vanneste, CEO Flughafen Koln/Bonn GmbH.
Cologne Bonn Airport is Germany’s third-busiest cargo airport and is among the top ten in Europe.
