Qantas plans to further its ambitions in the high-growth cargo sector with the launch of 747 freighter services to South Africa, India and Germany.

It has applied to the International Air Services Commission for approval to operate twice weekly between Australia and Frankfurt via Mumbai, Almaty-Kazakhstan and Singapore from Jan. 15 and weekly to Johannesburg from Jan. 25.

This follows introduction of 747-400F service to Chicago via Shanghai and Singapore in Feb. and establishment of the 49%-owned Thai Air Cargo joint venture based in Bangkok from 2005. Unlike its main regional competitors, Qantas does not own its freighters and will continue to wet-lease aircraft and crew from US-based Atlas Air.

In other news, Qantas commenced nonstop service between Sydney and Shanghai yesterday, operating three weekly roundtrips using A330-300 equipment. It is maintaining its codeshare on China Eastern services to Shanghai four times per week. Separately, Qantas and Air France started offering codeshare flights between France and Australia.
