A report from Loop News.
Caribbean Airlines (CAL) has introduced cargo charter services to support supply chains within the Caribbean region.
The airline launched this new option to meet the growing demand for cargo uplift to a number of islands which are now experiencing significantly reduced cargo capacity with the closure of borders to passenger aircraft, due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
CAL Cargo will utilise the airline’s fleet of Boeing 737-800 and ATR-72 aircraft, offering up to 18,000 pounds for the movement of essential goods to and from destinations, including but not limited to Antigua, Barbados, Curacao, Grenada, Guyana, Jamaica, Nassau, St Lucia, St Maarten, St Vincent, Suriname and Trinidad and Tobago.
Charter flights will be subject to the regulatory approvals of each jurisdiction and airport.
Meanwhile, the airline continues to operate its scheduled 767 freighter flights, offering up to 120,000 pounds of cargo capacity to and from its hub in Miami.
CAL General Manager Marklan Moseley stated: “In these unprecedented times, our cargo operations are crucial to securing the urgent supply of essential goods within the Caribbean. We will continue to adapt our business in order to meet the evolving needs of our valued customers”.
