Frankfurt-Hahn Airport starts new airfreight connection

Published: Tuesday, December 6, 2016

Frankfurt-Hahn Airport started a new weekly airfreight connection. The logistician Senator International will be flying with a Boeing 747-400F to and from Hahn. The aircraft will be furthermore marketed for Ad-hoc charter flights – which offers potential for further freight orders from the Rhein-Main area.

Around-the-clock operation and a highly trained team that does not stop even when faced with heavy or bulky goods – Freight handling at Frankfurt-Hahn creates the perfect conditions for customers who put emphasis on flexibility and handle with goods that need that extra special know-how. This is what convinced Senator International to station a Boeing 747-400F at Frankfurt-Hahn Airport.

“We are pleased to welcome Senator International as a new customer at Frankfurt-Hahn Airport” says Senior Vice President Cargo Roger Scheifele who, together with Uwe Dik, Branch Manager and Airfreight Coordinator at Senator International, inaugurated the new connection. However, not only Senator International`s new cargo connection to the United States was celebrated that day, but moreover the agreed on cooperation with the charter broker Chapman Freeborn, who will be marketing the aircraft for further flights from Frankfurt-Hahn, constituted a reason to celebrate.

“The Air Atlanta Icelandic aircraft will conduct weekly flights between Hahn and Greenville-Spartanburg in South Carolina,” says Roger Scheifele. Many companies of the automobile industry are located in the area around South and North Carolina, they will be using this service. Another weekly direct connection is set up between Munich Airport and the US. For the remaining time –exactly three days a week – the Boeing 747-400F will remain stationed at Hahn and be marketed exclusively by the charter broker Chapman Freeborn.

“The aim is to keep the aircraft in the air for most of the time” explains Roger Scheifele. The only reasonable solution for a stationing was thus Frankfurt-Hahn Airport: “Due to our 24- hour permit we offer perfect conditions” adds Scheifele. “Our flexibility, the short turnaround times and our central location in Germany offer the best conditions for both charter and scheduled flights” he stresses furthermore.
