SAS Cargo returns to the North Atlantic

SAS CARGO RETURNS TO THE NORTH ATLANTIC SAS Cargo will, effective April 18, reintroduce freighter capacity on the North Atlantic to serve the U.S. and Scandinavian markets. A DC-8 aircraft from DHL Worldwide Express will operate each weekend during the next three months between New York's John F. Kennedy airport and Landvetter airport in Gothenburg. The DC-8F has a freight capacity of 45 tons. SAS Cargo previously operated a Boeing 747-200F on the North Atlantic. The aircraft currently serves the Middle East and Macau/Hong Kong, as well as Osaka out of Gothenburg. "We have decided to reintroduce freighter operations on the North Atlantic to accommodate our customers' growing need for cargo capacity and improved logistics solutions," said Peter Groenlund, Vice President, SAS Cargo. The DC-8F's cargo capacity will be an add-on to the belly capacity available on SAS's four daily Boeing 767 services between Scandinavia and the New York area (Newark). In January this year SAS opened a brand new cargo terminal at Newark airport, while at the same time putting a new trucking system for North America into effect. This gives SAS Cargo the possibility to tailor-make swift and accurate solutions for its customers.
