KF Cargo, Are They Still Flying?

Tue Feb 23, 2016 11:17 pm

It seems their DC-10s have last flown the scheduled BRU-YYZ route 2 and 3 weeks ago. Are they still in business? I know they have stopped serving YQM in December. If anyone doesn't know it KF Cargo used to be Kelowna Flightcraft until two years ago.

I was told by someone who spoke to an employee that they have no business right now, no contracts, nothing to do. Their DC-10s are sitting at YYZ, have not moved in quite some time.

You would think they would move them back to YHM just to save from YYZ fees. Anyway I am not surprised by this.
Once they lost the Canada Post contract to Cargojet I knew its was just a matter of time for them. As far as cargo movements
is concerned. They do still have other work though.
Where will you spend eternity? He,s more real then you think!!!!!

Well, if at the moment they have no business but are hopeful to see that change in the not too far future, it might be better to keep them there handy, at least for a while.

Airplanes can be moved to were they are needed rather quickly...

No more lobsters to fly at the moment (no season). Noticed that their DC-10's are now parked on the FedEx-ramp at YYZ
(C-GKFD/T). C-GKFB ist still stored at YHM (no engines, many parts missing)

I meant financially.

So I guess FX is charging them something for that, perhaps less than the airport.

They used to park their aircraft at the infield-terminal at YYZ. Now the terminal is in use again for handling the incoming refugee flights from Syria. This might be the reason for moving them to the FedEx ramp.

Sounds as if 3 DC10 could soon become 2.
