A new air freight force in South Africa


A new South African cargo airline will begin non scheduled flights from its hub at OR Tambo International Airport in the second quarter of 2023. Suid Cargo Airlines will operate a leased Boeing 727-200F from Kenya’s Astral Aviation in addition to Astral’s Boeing 747-400F, Boeing 767 and Boeing 757F on a charter basis. The carrier plans to acquire additional narrow-body freighters in 2024. The new carrier will promote exports from South Africa in addition to transit shipments to over 20 African destinations, along with a sea-air service from the ports of Durban and Cape Town to land locked regions in Africa.
