June 16 - CAL Cargo Airlines has increased its fleet of Boeing 747 freighter aircraft to three.

Less than two years ago, CAL operated two classic B-747-200 freighters. The airline explained that a series of deals have established the current fleet of three B747 aircraft - an extended range freighter, Boeing converted freighter and a standard freighter.

"We are thrilled to announce the completion of two deals: we are introducing freighter Charlie to our fleet while keeping freighter Bravo as well," said Offer Gilboa, owner, chairman and ceo of the CAL group.

"The three freighter fleet will support CAL's growth strategy aimed at increasing our activity of scheduled and charter flights from our hub in Liege."
