Air Algérie launches dedicated cargo unit
Air Algérie has resumed dedicated freighter operations following the launch of its Air Algérie Cargo unit this past week, reports ch-aviation.
Using its only Lockheed Hercules freighter 7T-VHL the Algerian national airline began weekly flights from Algiers to Lyon St. Exupéry, France on November 15.
Additional services to West and Central Africa are also planned. Two B737-700 configured in a quick change layout may also be used on some of these cargo services with plans to convert two B737-800s to full freighters.
