Mexican freighter operator, MasAir Cargo has recently revealed its plans to expand business operations to Europe.
Recently, the European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) awarded the third-country operators certification to the airline, which gives the permission to perform scheduled commercial/cargo operations within, into or out of the European Union, complying with all regulatory and operating standards required by Europe.
The move is also part of the airline’s ambitious expansion plans. As part of a five-year dry-lease deal, the airline recently took delivery of a converted freighter ATSG owned B767-300.
Initially, the airline will offer only ACMI services to Europe. At the moment there is no confirmed start date for operations and the destinations of such operation would depend entirely on the potential customer’s needs. However, the carrier has already seen strong interest in Frankfurt, Amsterdam Schiphol and Brussels.
“Obtaining the European TCO certification reflects the high quality of Mas Air’s technical and operational teams in terms of training and qualifications, which will translate on a new opportunity for Mas Air’s to expand its wings into Europe,” Mas Air Director of Operations Roberto Navarro said.
