Air France to start twice-weekly freighter service to Atlanta March 27

2012 02 28


AIR FRANCE-KLM and Martinair will return to Hartsfield Jackson Atlanta with a twice-weekly freighter service effective March 27 after a three-year absence operating a freighter service from Paris to Atlanta over a 12-year period.

The service will be operated by Air France Cargo with Air France-KLM Cargo and Martinair Cargo providing sales and customer service that will run alongside current passenger flights.

"I am pleased that Air France is choosing to grow its cargo business in Atlanta," said Mayor Kasim Reed, adding that he expected it to generate US$8 million to $12 million a year.

"Air France's decision to begin all-cargo service into Atlanta furthers our position as one of the world's premier logistics hubs. Air cargo is important to Atlanta and the south eastern United States, and it is critical to our continued growth and success as a city and a region," he added.

Said Air France-KLM sales vice president US Alain Pages: "These new flights are made possible through our close working relationship with Delta Cargo and will offer our customers in the southeast US greater access to our global array of products and services."

Air France-KLM passenger flights, Delta Air Lines' transatlantic flights and Alitalia's flights from the US operate in close coordination as part of the North Atlantic Joint Venture (NAJV).

Between 2010 and 2011, total international air cargo flights at Hartsfield-Jackson increased 40 per cent. Nine of the top 10 global cargo airlines provide service to and from Atlanta.
