Through thick and thin
The introduction of dedicated leased
freighters to work BidAir Cargo
overnight express services has
added a whole new dimension to
airport-to-airport line-haul for the
express freight industry.
As you know, daytime cargo is
carried in passenger aircraft. These
have to fly to a fixed schedule
anyway, regardless of cargo volumes.
It’s a different picture with overnight
express. While we have our regular
patterns networking coastal airports
and Johannesburg, we also have
the capability of adding extra flights
to cope with a surge in demand. It
is this flexibility which came to the
rescue over the peak holiday season.
We can schedule such additional
flights when volumes justify more
capacity, or to plug a gap when
a competitor suspends flights.
