A good sign:
Martinair is reactivating 747-412BCF PH-MPR, and Eva Air one of its stored BDSFs. Both had been temporarily parked earlier this year.

China Al has also reactived a stored in California 744F.
Perhaps it's time for China Southern to pick up their first 2 777Fs.

It was reported here that this going to happen soon. But I´ve also read the first two might be snapped up by TK.

They only parked 3??? I thought they parked more than that... AFAIK, at 20 frames, they have the largest 747-400F fleet in the world.



oh boy!!!

depending on how you account for their 744F dry leased to Y8 which they partly own, they have 21 744Fs

Was spotting today (in HKG), and yep, PH-MPR operated a flight here this morning! It was great seeing MP again, after a 6-7 month absence from HKG.

Great to see the air cargo market in an upturn.

That Martinair Cargo is operating AMS HKG AMS... that must mean not a large cargo load. How long will they operate it? When will loads pick up? it's close to the holidays

It returned to AMS via SHJ and left HKG with a 111470kg gross payload.  Smile

How can you say that?!
Volume pays better then weight of course. And, apparently the aircraft is needed. They're not going to get it back from the dessert for just a few flights...

Thanks for the correction, flightstats said its destination was AMS from HKG.
Do you know by chance what the payload was on the flight to HKG? was it direct AMS-HKG?

We're going off topic here, but this BCF also routed eastbound via SHJ where it carried roughly 70 metric tons. From SHJ to HKG only about 20t, I'd guess mostly empty pallets etc.

Maybe true, but why would they then order A330F's this week ?

CX will be reactivating a BCF in the coming weeks although it is the one still in Dragonair colours so will be repainted prior to entry into service next month.

Robust air cargo
business propelled turnover for Taiwan’s two leading carriers from deficits to profits last month, airline sources said yesterday.

China Airlines Ltd (CAL, 中華航空) said the company’s balance sheet went from red to black in late September, when air cargo shipment rates soared to 70 percent and continued to rise.

To meet increasing demand, it said, CAL put two mothballed cargo planes back into use last month and a third mothballed plane is scheduled to resume service by early next month.
