June 26 - CAL Cargo Airlines has launched CAL Engines - a dedicated product for the safe transportation of aircraft engines.

CAL Cargo says it has decades of experience in transporting every size and type of aircraft engine around the world and CAL Engines will leverage CAL's fleet of 747-400s original freighters, which can accommodate all engine sizes.

CAL Engines claims that it will cover every aspect and point in the transport process with dedicated standard operating procedures per engine type. For AOG cases, the CAL team offers fast response times, including 'must ride' service, expedited customs clearance and transit time, as well as charter options.

"As an airline, we are especially sensitive to the importance and delicate requirements of engine transport and AOG. Over the past few years our business in the engine segment has increased by an average of 25 percent per year," said Eyal Zagagi, ceo of CAL Cargo Airlines.

"CAL Engines is the seventh product in our portfolio of solutions for non-standard cargo, all of which embody our slogan 'Challenge accepted'.

"Our entire operation is built to service non-standard cargo, including specialty products for live animals, dangerous goods, pharma and perishable items, artwork, valuables and other oversize and overweight cargo".
