Finnair Cargo To Start ORD

Tue Jan 08, 2013 9:28 am

From the article:


"In March 2013 Finnair Cargo will initiate weekly MD-11 freighter flights via its new Brussels hub, connecting Brussels with Finnair's Helsinki hub as well as New York JFK and new destination Chicago O'Hare. Via Helsinki Finnair Cargo offers an extensive network to Finnair's 14 Asian destinations, including Japan, South Korea, China and Southeast Asia, with dedicated freighter flights to Hong Kong and Mumbai."

Does Finnair Cargo has their own planes in Finnair livery? Never saw one in Hongkong so far...

No longer. Now their cargo flights are operated by their subsidiary Nordic Global Airlines.

The beautiful MD11 looks so cheap with the simple NGA text. I wish they woud have the FINNAIR CARGO text on big and the operated by NGA somewhere on the side.

Before NJ was created, OH-LGC sported Finnair Cargo livery. I guess we should consider NJ more as an ACMI company than a subsidiary (as I said earlier) of AY since the latter is only a minor shareholder.

Surprised they aren't doing HEL-OST-ORD-OST-HEL considering the operation they already have in place in OST.
Nice Trip Report!!! Great Pics, thanks for posting!!!! B747Forever

It may have to do with OST being heavily focused on cargo destined for Africa. There is very little road feed into OST for any other destination. I can only think of Saudia as an OST user not flying to/from Africa, and in this particular case, the airport is only a fuel stop. Saudia cargo flights (off)loading in Belgium go to BRU.
