November 17 - Effective December 2015, CAL Cargo Airlines will offer a peak season service out of Halifax to Belgium, Hong Kong and Shanghai.

CAL Group ceo Eyal Zagagi said: It was only two months ago that we announced round-trip service from Atlanta, Georgia, and now with Halifax we have significantly strengthened our foothold and expanded our network in North America. We look forward to continuing this momentum and further increasing our presence throughout the new year."

CAL's fleet includes Boeing 747-400 freighter and 747-400 extended range freighter aircraft, with both nose and side loading capabilities, which it says are ideal for oversize and overweight cargo.
