Panalpina is expanding its controlled air freight network by adding a full-freighter service to Brazil. As of March, Panalpina will not only operate scheduled charter flights from Hong Kong to Huntsville, but also from Huntsville to São Paulo. The extended service is part of the recently renewed long-term agreement between Panalpina and Atlas Air. It offers scheduled main deck capacity to South America from the US and a record transit time of less than 40 hours from Hong Kong to São Paulo.
Panalpina and Atlas Air are strengthening their long-standing partnership in the air freight industry. As a cornerstone of a new five-year agreement, Panalpina will switch one of its wet-leased aircraft to more than 200 scheduled charters per year, thereby expanding its unique air freight network.
International freight forwarding and logistics company, Panalpina, has opened two new bases in Morocco and Kenya. The offices in Casablanca and Nairobi became fully operational in January, and support Panalpina’s growth strategy for the region. In both economies, opportunities for growth exist predominantly in the energy and infrastructure sectors.
