Air New Zealand Cargo has signed an International Airfreight Capacity agreement with New Zealand’s Ministry of Transport that will give exporters and importers the ability to access key markets in a world where available air freight capacity is reduced due to the COVID19 pandemic.
Rick Nelson, Air New Zealand General Manager Cargo, said cargo customers will be able to access capacity across Air New Zealand’s traditional network, with a handful of exceptions.
Ports the airline will not operate cargo flights to under the agreement are London and Buenos Aires. Singapore is also not included in the initial phase.
“The new agreement means Air New Zealand can publish scheduled cargo services into key markets which will allow freight forwarders, exporters and importers to plan and operate their logistics supply chains with certainty,” Mr Nelson said. “We are working to offer connectivity to and from the United Kingdom and Europe, as well as Houston and Chicago via Los Angeles and San Francisco, Hong Kong and Narita gateways. This agreement will add significant value to New Zealand’s air cargo community, and we encourage the New Zealand forwarding, export and import communities to get behind these cargo options. Naturally, we hope the need to operate under an agreement of this nature will be a short-term business model and in time we’ll be able to revert to our traditional model as demand for passenger travel begins to pick up.”
