DUBAI, United Arab Emirates -
- Weekly flights will provide air cargo options from the Middle East to Europe and U.S.
National Air Cargo today announced that it will extend its weekly DC 8 cargo aircraft from Sharjah, United Arab Emirates (U.A.E.), to Hahn, Germany before returning back to the United States. The flight will specialize in space available, preferred and priority cargo destined for Europe and the US, from the Middle East.
Operated by National Airlines, the DC 8 flight will depart Sharjah, U.A.E. weekly on route to Hahn, Germany and Ypsilanti, Michigan.
National has been operating this weekly frequency from Sharjah to Ypsilanti (Michigan, United States) since March 2009.
“Extending the flight to Hahn expands our commitment to supplying cargo needs to Europe and throughout the world,” Alex Munro, director - Middle East Sales, National Air Cargo said. “The expansion is a confident step for National Air Cargo defying the global market contraction of recent months.”
“Our goal is to do everything we can to expediently and efficiently send and deliver materials and goods all over the world and this new flight will provide shippers of time sensitive cargo the fastest route possible from the Middle East to Europe,” Munro continued.
Cargo to be transported to Hahn includes garments, technology products, perishables and other time- sensitive air cargo. The new flight has been scheduled by National Air Cargo to expand the all cargo transport options to Europe and to provide a much needed service to Middle Eastern sea-air transport brokers.
“National’s Middle East’s regional strength in the cargo market coupled with our global expertise is a perfect platform to consolidate our position and service the Middle East to Europe lane,” Munro said. “With the increase of products being exported from China and the Middle East to Europe, the need for air transport is becoming more important everyday and we know that National Air Cargo can fulfill this need in the quickest and safest means possible.”
