Air France KLM Martinair Cargo continues to expand its cargo network

At Air France KLM Martinair Cargo, we aim to keep supply chains moving. Especially at a time when wide-body belly capacity is limited, it’s essential to make a difference. This is important for relief & healthcare-related goods to combat Covid-19, but extends to include all other commodities.

This week we passed a significant milestone, re-opening our routes from Paris Charles de Gaulle to Saint Martin, Panama City, Bangui and Johannesburg. And from Amsterdam Airport Schiphol to Paramaribo, Aruba, Saint Martin and Quito.

What’s more, we have added frequencies to several destinations such as Sao Paulo, Bogotá, Cayenne, Los Angeles, Toronto and Seoul.

We are currently serving 73 unique destinations, operating more than 375 weekly frequencies across our combined network. We are also still offering belly hold charter options with our passenger aircraft.

We are continuing to expand our network in sync with customer demand, data & intelligence. Drawing from numerous insights and data sources – based on industry recovery forecasts, for example – we can effectively determine which cargo destinations to re-open, how many frequencies to add and which aircraft types to deploy in order to meet evolving requirements for specific commodities and market segments.

Gertjan Roelands, Senior Vice President Sales & Distribution: “For us, it’s key to continuously adapt our offer and services in order to meet market demand. In recent months, we’ve seen that airfreight is a critical link in the global logistics supply chain. Also for the recovery phase, it’s key that industries are able to distribute their goods. As Air France KLM Martinair Cargo, we will continue to build our network intelligently, coupled with always improving our services and distribution capabilities.”
