Delta launched has cargo-only flights between the United States, Europe and India to help meet customer demands.
Daily cargo-only flights between New York-JFK and Madrid have been started using a Boeing 767-400 aircraft, providing customers with capacity to ship fashion goods to the US ahead of the holiday season.
A three-times weekly cargo-only flight between New York-JFK and Dublin has also been launched using an Airbus A330-300 as well as between New York-JFK and Atlanta to Mumbai, via Frankfurt, using Airbus A330-200/300 aircraft.
“Given the travel constraints within Europe, we are strategically adding cargo capacity in Spain, Ireland and Germany to support overall passenger and cargo growth,” said Shawn Cole, Delta’s Vice President – Cargo. “There is high demand for pharmaceutical shipments from India because of the COVID-19 pandemic, and this cargo solution ensures we can keep vital supply chains moving to the United States.”
