Long term growth
I am delighted to tell
clients that BidAir
Cargo has signed
a three-year lease
for two Boeing 737-
300F aircraft to carry
Cargo on our network. This contract
reflects our confidence in the long-term
growth of the express cargo business
and the need for continuous progress to
satisfy the needs of the courier industry.
Aircraft operation is an expensive
business especially with major costs
such as leases, fuel and spares dollar
denominated and thus exposed to
exchange-rate fluctuation. Efficiency,
economy and reliability are paramount
to sustain service levels and keep
tariffs affordable for couriers and their
customers. Hence we needed to move
up to new generation aircraft.
The new freighters are 14 years
younger than the trusty workhorses
they replace. They offer 20% additional
capacity, 10% lower fuel consumption
and can take-off on shorter runways
even with an increased payload.
Their CFM56 turbofan engines are
environmentally-friendly, reducing both
noise and emissions.
