PML Flying High with New Air Freight Charter Service

PML, the global perishable cargo specialist is investing in chartering its own air freight flights to maintain its pivotal role in maintaining the supply of fresh produce during the pandemic and post Brexit.

The company is working with Kenya Airways and has chartered a Boeing 787 Dreamliner aircraft which will fly from Nairobi to Heathrow twice a week, carrying essential perishable goods on behalf of PML’s clients looking to export out of Kenya. 

The two weekly flights start 18th November and up until end December will be able to carry 36 tonnes of cargo per flight. From January, post planned modifications to the aircraft, the capacity will increase to 42 tonnes. With the flights departing at 04.00 local time on Wednesdays and Sundays, PML will be able to successfully deliver fresh produce into the UK on the same day as they were flown out of Nairobi, representing the speedy transfer that is key to maintaining the quality and shelf life of any fresh produce consignment.
