New North Carolina-based freighter carrier 21 Air has been approved by the US Department of Transportation (DOT) to operate scheduled services, according to reports.
A report by the American Journal of Transportation says the green light was given by the DOT after it tested a flight on one of the carrier’s Boeing 767Fs.
21 Air is set to operate two B767Fs from the US to Mexico and points in between. It is also reportedly looking to add an additional 767F to meet demand.
The two-year exemption that was granted last month will allow for 21 Air to conduct scheduled services up until July 2021.
21 Air operates aircraft, crew, maintenance, insurance (ACMI) as well as crew, maintenance, insurance (CMI) services and specialises in global charter operations
