Asiana Cargo To Split And Calgary?

Thu Jul 06, 2006 12:15 am

Asiana's schedules are showing both cities served by their own freighters, when did these services begin? Split(SPL) is in Croatia.

The Calgary route has been operating for over a year now easily I believe.

Quoting 777way (Thread starter):

To correct you, Split/Croatia is SPU
SPL means actually Amsterdam Schiphol (AMS and/or SPL)

So if they really operate (some) full freighter flights to SPU, they will be for fresh tuna fish from Croatia to Asia. But I highly doubt this!!

I'm quite sure they mean their scheduled freighter services between SPL and ICN (or read AMS-ICN, it's the same meaning)

Pardon my ignorance but what is in YYC that justifies OZ flying a freighter
into there? Here at SEA we have Boeing, Microsoft et al and right now
it is the cherry season now up until the end of the month. OZ and KE are
getting many pallet loads of Bing and Rainier cherries going to Korea, Australia
and especially Japan. Is OZ using their own metal to these cargo destinations
or are they doing ACMI leases with Tradewinds and such?

Yes Asiana is using their own a/c for the YYC route. I'm not entirely sure on what it is they are picking up here though. Keep in mind that we also have Cargolux into YYC running over to Europe a few times a week as well.

Calgary has been expanding very strongly into the cargo market in the last few years. For a while back when Asiana started the route Korean Air Cargo was also running the same route, but have since pulled out.

Fast Facts about Exports/Imports into Alberta

-Korea is the Alberta's 5th largest trade partner
-Two way trade amounted valued at approximately $977 million
-Exports to Korea included woodpulp, antifreeze(?), wheat and agri-food products, nickel and coal
-Imports to Alberta included motor vehicle and parts, telecommunications equipment parts, and computers/parts
-Previous to BSE Korea was importing $42.5 million in beef imports, pork imports though amounted to $23.8 million
-Korean National Oil Company (KNOC) signed a MOU for oil sands investment

I'd say pretty decent for a twice weekly(Tuesday/Thursdays) service for this market. The flight goes ICN-ORD-YYC-ICN if Im reading correctly(off their schedule on Asiana Cargo). It looks like they've done away with the stop in ANC.

Tuesdays/Thursday
OZ2966 ICN-ORD 2340-0010+1 74F
OZ2966 ORD-YYC 0230-0455+1 74F
OZ2956 YYC-ICN 0625-0845+2 74F

Also SPL is for AMS as some have already stated. AMS is served 2 times a week(Wednesdays/Saturday) via STN it looks.

Wednesday
OZ0591 ICN-STN 0855-1220 74F
OZ0591 STN-AMS 1420-1620 74F
OZ0592 AMS-ICN 1835-1200+1 74F

Saturday
OZ0591 ICN-STN 0435-0800 74F
OZ0591 STN-AMS 0955-1155 74F
OZ0592 AMS-ICN 1410-0735+1 74F

Cheap Fuel as an incentive, makes it worth there while to by pass ANC and use YYC
