Qantas Freight kicked off its new weekly freighter service between Australia and Papua New Guinea on Saturday 6 July 2013.
The flight between Cairns, Brisbane and Port Moresby will be operated by a Boeing 737-300F aircraft, offering 15 tonnes of cargo capacity.
The freighter service will operate each Saturday on the following schedule (listed in local times):
This is a popular freight route with increasing volumes of small mining equipment and urgent dispatches of machinery parts and consumables.
This new service provides greater flexibility for our customers and the B737-300 aircraft allows us to carry oversize freight on the main deck, with less reliance on charter aircraft.
The B737-300F will come from Qantas Freight’s existing fleet with additional flying time made possible through schedule enhancements.
This freighter service will supplement Freightplus’ current air cargo offerings to PNG using Air Niugini’s daily service between Brisbane and Port Moresby and various charter air craft available to us.
