Comment on this article

Network Airline Services has signed a two-year extension for its contract with Africa Flight Services Kenya, to provide cargo handling for its four weekly flights into Nairobi.

AFS Kenya will handle around 11,500 tonnes of cargo each year for NAS’ MD-11 and Boeing 747 freighter operations. The flights arrive in Nairobi from Liege, Belgium, carrying general cargo and continue on to Doncaster Sheffield airport in the UK, carrying shipments of fresh flowers, fruits and vegetables for the UK and European consumer markets.

AFS Kenya operates a special facility in Nairobi to support the movement of perishable cargoes from Kenya. This includes 4,735 square metres of temperature-controlled storage, accommodating a temperature range of 2⁰C - 8⁰C, and an ETV system with 172 ULD storage positions.

Gonzalo Jacob, CEO of Africa Flight Services Kenya, commented: “NAS operates a very successful service to and from Kenya and provides an essential link to and from Europe for companies in and around Nairobi. The recent addition of its fourth weekly freighter service ex Nairobi reflects this demand and AFS is proud to be playing an important role in its success,” he said. “It is thanks to the quality of service and reliability we provide that we have earned this new contract with NAS and we hope to be part of its continued long-term expansion in the region.”
