KF Aerospace begins Toronto-Brussels freighter

PRESS RELEASE

May 29, 2015: KF Aerospace announced today new route structures and a number of key strategic partners as it re-enters the Domestic and International air cargo services.

Initial KF Aerospace routes will include four times a week service between Toronto and Europe via Brussels [with a stop in Greater Moncton] with a DC10-30F, and daily service between Toronto and Atlantic Canada via Greater Moncton International Airport with a B727-200. The network will expand within two months to include Western Canada via Vancouver and Calgary, and all of Asia via Anchorage, Alaska.

Based out of Toronto's Pearson International Airport, the air cargo services will begin May 30, 2015. The Toronto location gives KF Aerospace the opportunity to reach nearly anywhere in the world via interline arrangements.

"Within eight hours trucking from Brussels, you reach 3⁄4's of the European market and we offer connections to almost every corner of Africa", confirms Steven Polmans, Head of Cargo at Brussels Airport. "Our central location, efficient services and dedicated handling for perishables and pharmaceuticals will help KF Cargo in realizing their ambitions. We are proud and pleased we were chosen as their European gateway and we will support them and their customers wherever we can."

KF Aerospace"For nearly 40 years we have been Canada's largest cargo operator and have provided over 99% reliability to Purolator and Canada Post overnight courier customers," stated Barry Lapointe, Founder and CEO of KF Aerospace. "We look forward to providing the same level of regularly scheduled service to Canadian companies reaching into Europe, USA, Asia and points beyond."

Kales Airline Services are the general sales agents (GSA) for KF Aerospace in Europe and elsewhere. "We are proud and excited to be expanding into Canada and being associated with KF Cargo," said Peter Kales, Founder. "Both organizations share a strong commitment and history in delivering outstanding customer satisfaction.

"Key to our launching this new service is the local relationships we have forged – such as with Kales Group, the Brussels Airport Authority, the Greater Toronto Airport Authority, Midland Transport Limited, the Greater Moncton International Airport, and GTA World Cargo," indicated Tracy Medve, President of KF Aerospace. "These organizations will help any business in Canada, Europe, Asia, or the USA to move live items, perishables, pharmaceuticals, and other high value goods seamlessly across North America and into Europe or Asia. In fact, Brussels is already a natural launching point for cargo reaching in or out of the African continent.

"The arrival of KF Aerospace's air freight service is a huge benefit for Atlantic Canadian companies. It is a service that has long been needed for those looking to grow and export into new markets," said Shane Esson, Senior Vice-President and General Manager, Midland Transport Limited. "Adding daily cargo flights out of Greater Moncton International Airport will be a huge benefit to our seafood customers as well as many other exporters."
