It is understood that the European Cargo service between Bournemouth and Chengdu was increased to six weekly, with the third Airbus A340 Freighter offering more options for capacity increases moving forward.

Speaking to the cargo publication was the airline’s CEO, David Kerr:

“In the push to improve choice and service for UK consumers, we are delighted to expand our capabilities with our mutual customer.”

“By partnering with Cargo First and the team at Bournemouth, to provide effective solutions into the supply chains of expanding online retailers, we have grown our repertoire.”

“Now the UK’s largest commercial freighter operator, we continue to expand our portfolio of customers and origins, with new agreements in place through 2024.”

“Additional capacity coming on stream in the first quarter of 2024 is fully committed to customers looking to enhance their capabilities, deploying the uniquely tailored dual-density freighter solution offered by [us] coupled with the dedicated support of Cargo First’s fulfilment capabilities.”

Looking ahead, all eyes will be on how the performance of the Bournemouth-Chengdu service will go with European Cargo, with things already looking promising if they are adding a third Airbus A340 freighter to the service.
