Cargolux At Huntsville?

Tue Jun 10, 2003 8:58 am

Just looking at the JFK Passur, which shows a Cargolux 744 at 33000 ft over NY at 1403 enroute from HSV to I guess Luxembourg. Is Huntsville a regular stop for them?

Cargolux has operated a scheduled charter for years from HSV
for freight forwarder PANALPINA. It is a very unique operation in that
everything, facilities, customs, etc had to be added to the airport.
I understand its a quite profitable run....

For months, MK Air cargo has flown 747-200's between Luxembourg hartford and Huntsville. The routing was LUX-BDL-HSV-BDL-LUX. I have no idea what they are carrying, maybe airplane or helicopter engines from pratt or sikorsky?

Atlas Air also serves Huntsville for Panalpina.

Huntsville serves as the North American base for Panalpina. We get two 747's a day, mainly from Miami, Edinburgh, and Luxembourg. More info is available here:


Panalpina operates out of a 100 000 square foot facility next to the cargo terminal. Through the years, I have seen airlines such as ATLAS, Cargolux, MK, Southern, TAESA, and Kalitta operate on their behalf. In fact, the western runway at HSV is being lengthened from 8 000 feet to 12 600 feet in preparation of cargo flights to eastern Asia.

Huntsville is a large aerospace, high-tech, military center and many items related to these industries are shipped through HSV. Mercedes in Tuscaloosa uses these flights as well.

The cargo ramp seems to see quite a bit of activity here in HSV.

The Edinburgh run should actually be from Prestwick, Scotland EGPK / PIK.
