GRU? The only foreign regular cargo flight to GRU is AF Cargo's and it's an exception to the rule that forbids foreign regular dedicated cargo flights to that airport. Guess when they said São Paulo they meant VCP (Campinas - Viracopos).
|Quoting Avianca (Reply 2):
AF086, do you have info why its forbidden to use GRU for foreign airlines as cargo only destination????
|Quoting AF086 (Reply 4):|
The sole exception to this rule is Air France Cargo. They're the only foreign cargo airline flying to GRU regularly. All the others (Lufthansa Cargo, Polar, UPS, FedEx and so on) serve VCP and do not land at GRU. That's why I think that the newspaper got the destination wrong. They probably meant VCP which is still a big cargo destination. After VCP, hope they expand even further their south american ops.
|Quoting Avianca (Reply 5):|
but national airlines are allowed to use GRU for all cargo international flights (VarigLog) ? or do they reroute the flights via another brazilian destination in order to be within the national rule ?
|Quoting A388 (Reply 7):|
I was not aware of AF Cargo flying MIA-GRU or do you mean that they are allowed to fly the flight but don't operate the flight?
|Quoting 76er (Reply 8):|
MP will serve VCP, just like before when if was on behalf of Varig.
|Quoting AF086 (Reply 9):|
AF Cargo flies CDG-DKR-GRU. They're the only foreign cargo operator at GRU. I don't know why the exception was made for them though.
|Quoting AF086 (Reply 6):|
VLO flies internationally from Campinas as well. For instance their flights to Frankfurt have the following routing: VCP-REC-DKR-FRA. Same goes for Absa.
|Quoting Avianca (Reply 11):|
no they have also flights ex AMS and FRA into GRU I am only not sure if the first airport in brasil they arrive is GRU.
