CMA CGM expands air cargo network with three new destinations


CMA CGM Air Cargo is expanding its freighter network with the addition of three new destinations, says a company press statement.

The airline, owned by Marseille-based shipping group CMA CGM, has added Dubai, Beirut and Istanbul to its existing flights covering Liège, Chicago, New York and Atlanta.

The service between Liege and Dubai will begin on May 19 and the A330F capacity provider hopes to pick up traffic carry cargo originating in Africa and Asia to and from Europe.

“With its services to Dubai, the CMA CGM Group can also provide its customers with a combined Sea-Air offer comprising shipping, logistics and airfreight,” it said. “That will give them the benefit of an end-to-end, agile full-service offering.”

The flights between Liege and Istanbul and Beirut will begin in the next few weeks.

“From its Liege base, CMA CGM Air Cargo will offer rapid connection times between these new destinations and the US,” the company added.

Xavier Eiglier, executive vice president CMA CGM Air cargo, said: “Strategically located at the crossroads between several continents, these new destinations will help speed up CMA CGM Air Cargo’s development.”
