Air Partner adds Sochi charter capacity

June 5 - UK headquartered charter broker Air Partner will launch a new weekly B747-400 freighter service from Frankfurt to Sochi, Russia, to meet growing demand for air freight capacity ahead of the 2014 Winter Olympic Games.

Located on the Russian Black Sea coast, Sochi is not particularly well served by European carriers and there is currently limited air freight capacity. Air Partner will operate a cargo service every Monday between November 18, 2013 and February 7, 2014 from Frankfurt directly to Sochi.

Mike Hill, regional manager, Air Partner Freight Group, commented: "Access to Sochi is currently very limited; many freight shipments route via Moscow and are then trucked on to Sochi, involving a long transit time. Air Partner's new full freighter service, the 'Sochi Express', is the only non-stop air service currently scheduled between Europe and Sochi."
