Allied Air Cargo Expands
Allied Air Cargo is expanding both its aircraft fleet size and route network throughout Africa due to increased demand on all routes. The airline currently operates a fleet of four Boeing 727 Freighters and two MD11Fs leased from World Airways, but will add a third MD11F and two B737-300Fs later this year.
From its European base in Ostende, Belgium, Allied Air now offer direct MD11F services to Abuja, Lagos and Port Harcourt in Nigeria as well as Kinshasa (in conjunction with Demavia), Libreville (in conjunction with Gabon Airlines), Lusaka (in conjunction with Eurocargo/Stabo Air) as well as numerous other destinations in Africa including Entebbe, Johannesburg and Nairobi.
The B727 fleet operate regional services within West Africa including Abidjan, Accra, Doula, Libreville, Malabo (in conjunction with DHL) as well as domestic freighter services within Nigeria.
