CAL Cargo buys new freighter
Tel Aviv-based CAL Cargo Air Lines purchased a 747-400ER freighter, manufactured in 2007.
“We expect the freighter to be ready for service in November, giving CAL a competitive advantage by transporting cargo to the greatest possible distances around the globe,” Offer Gilboa, owner and chairman of the CAL Group, said. “We clearly defined a corporate strategy designed to strengthen our company and enable growth, and this new aircraft is central to achieving our goals.”
CAL’s upgraded fleet, which includes two new freighters with the addition of this 747-400ERF, will support CAL’s specialization in non-standard cargo such as oversize, dangerous goods, cool chain and live animals.
With these new freighters, CAL is able to fly non-stop from its Liege hub to Latin America and Asia Pacific.
