Breakbulk firm Africa Flight Services Kenya has signed a two-year extension to provide cargo handling for freight aviation firm Network Airline Services.
Under the agreement, AFS Kenya will handle cargo for four flights a week into Nairobi arriving from Liege, Belgium. The firm handled an estimated 11,500 tonnes of cargo last year for NAS’s MD-11 and Boeing 747 freighter operations.
“NAS operates a very successful service to and from Kenya and provides an essential link to and from Europe for companies in and around Nairobi. The recent addition of its fourth weekly freighter service ex Nairobi reflects this demand and AFS is proud to be playing an important role in its success,” said Gonzalo Jacob, CEO of Africa Flight Services Kenya.
NAS is part of the Network Aviation Group which carries more than 70,000 tonnes of cargo annually via its fleet of freighter aircraft.
