Magma Aviation – a Chapman Freeborn Company and member of Avia Solutions Group – is expanding its fleet with an additional Boeing 747-400F through a partnership with Plus Logistics Solutions.

The expansion brings Magma Aviation’s managed fleet to five aircraft.

Magma Aviation said it is responding to the surge in demand for freighter aircraft. The company explained that the impact of the pandemic and grounding of passenger fleets has created a significant lack of global capacity. This is the second increase to Magma Aviation’s fleet within 12 months.
