Turkish Cargo has approved CSafe Global’s RAP active container for in-flight use on its fleet.
The newly launched RAP utilises CSafe’s proprietary ThermoCor VIP insulation together with a compressor driven cooling and radiant heating system to precisely maintain the user-defined payload temperature set point through payload transport, regardless of ambient conditions.
CSafe Global vice president of global marketing and partner management, Brad Jennings: “Turkish Cargo have long been experts when it comes to transporting temperature-sensitive healthcare products globally. CEIV accreditation further demonstrates their commitment to providing our mutual life-science customers with precision cold-chain services that have been validated to exceptionally high standards.”
Turkish Airlines senior vice president of cargo marketing, Fatih Cigal says the RAP will be an “excellent addition” of active temperature controlled containers, adding: “With volumes of pharmaceutical shipments growing on a global scale, active temperature-controlled containers for larger cargo payloads are required.”
Cigal adds: “Partnership with CSafe Global, the company that shares the same customer-centric values and business attitudes as we do, provides Turkish Cargo with confidence in the preservation and integrity of our shipments, every single time.”
Silk Way West Airlines and JAL Cargo have agreed to a cargo services cooperation to use capacity on each other’s aircraft.
The cooperation has been described as a “win-win situation” for both partners, as JAL Cargo stopped full freighter operations, the use of Silk Way West Airlines’ capacity on scheduled routes out of Europe via Baku into Japan and vice versa will create an “interesting option” for both carriers.
Silk Way will increase weekly connections out of its global hub in Baku from three to four times a weekly operations, and will boost its weekly operations between Baku and Europe offering sequenced connections to and from Japan.
Silk Way West Airlines president and chief executive officer, Wolfgang Meier says: “It perfectly fits into our growth strategy we are pursuing in reference to our footprint in Japan. Right from the start of our Japan services more than two years ago, we have always been eager to increase our exposure.
“The co-operation with JAL CARGO does represent a quantum leap in our development and I am happy both carriers will benefit from this agreement.”
JAL Cargo executive officer cargo/mail and board member, Hiroo Iwakoshi says: “Having these kind of positive communications is pleasing JAL CARGO and we welcome very much more capacities especially with the use of Silk Way West’s Boeing 747-8F aircraft within our network.”
Silk Way West Airlines vice president APAC, Nurid Aliyev says: “This co-operation is not the first one we do pursue in this format as we have already successfully been working together with Malaysia Airlines Cargo after they had stopped their full freighter activities.
“As our global hub is perfectly located along the ancient Silk Road our geographical position is at the crossroads between orient and occident and Silk Way West Airlines, thus, very much favours this partnership.”

Emirates SkyCargo has transported record volumes of mangoes from Mumbai in May and June with growth of more than 50 per cent.
Close to 1,130 tonnes of mangoes were uplifted from Mumbai to other destinations around the world using the belly space of passenger aircraft as well as freighters.
Since April 2018, over 2,650 tonnes of mangoes have been on exported from India, out of which 2,142 tonnes were from Mumbai.
Major markets for mango exports include the Middle East, UK, USA, Canada and other parts of Europe.
India is one of the major exporters of premium mangoes in the world with the peak export season normally falling between April and June every year.
The state of Maharashtra is the largest grower of mangoes in the country exporting over 30,000 tonnes every year and Mumbai is an important gateway for the mango exports.
Between April and June 2018, Emirates SkyCargo also exported over 2,290 tonnes of other perishables from Mumbai, with large volumes of fruit and vegetables going to the UK and also the Middle East during Ramadan, which tends to be a busy season for perishable exports.
Emirates has a fleet of 265 aircraft including 14 freighters, also offering extensive cool chain facilities at its cargo terminals in Dubai for the transport of temperature sensitive goods including pharmaceuticals and perishables.
Emirates SkyCargo also provides supplementary protection to cargo using equipment including White Cover thermal blankets, White Containers and the world’s first Ventilated Cool Dollies.
For the first time, a Boeing 747-400 aircraft en route to Mexico’s Querétaro Intercontinental Airport has taxied down the runway at Greenville-Spartanburg International Airport in South Carolina.
The new destination was airfreight company Senator International’s first flight to Latin America from GSP as previous flights were only to Europe. Querétaro, near Mexico City in Mexico’s Bajio region, is home to automotive, aerospace and production operations.
GSP senior vice president and chief operating officer Kevin Howell calls the Sunday to Monday roundtrip routes “another opportunity for manufacturers to move materials, parts, and products quickly and more efficiently.”
A large part of planning included ensuring staff availability to help load and unload aircraft at both the sending and receiving airport.
Two years ago, GSP initiated air cargo services provider Cerulean Commercial Aviation, offering on-airport cargo facilities, build-up and break-down of cargo, BUP transfer, bulk and containerised aircraft loading and unloading, on- call charter cargo handling, customs documentation processing, and aircraft refueling.
“We were confident that we could support companies like Senator International,” GSP president and CEO Dave Edwards says.
While automotive parts and goods comprise a large part of Cerulean Aviation’s cargo, the company varies briefly this fall, when nearby Mill Spring, North Carolina, is hosting the 2018 FEI World Equestrian Games. Held this year from September 11 to 23, the event is estimated to attract more than 1,500 horses.
Approximately 600 horses, including some from overseas, will fly to GSP for transport to the Tryon International Equestrian Center in Mill Spring. Senator operated eight weekly round-trip flights in June from GSP, whose traffic numbers increased steadily during the past the past 18 months. The company began freight traffic flights between Frankfurt Hahn, Germany and Querétaro in May.
