Aeroflot to operate cargo unit as subsidiary, replace DC-10Fs with MD-11Fs for international flights
Aeroflot said last week that it now will operate its cargo unit as a separate, wholly owned subsidiary and will lease six MD-11 freighters for delivery in 2008 to replace four aging DC-10s that will be relegated to domestic duty.
Aeroflot Cargo will focus on continuing to build up operations at its European freight hub at Frankfurt Hahn, which recorded a 20% year-over-year increase in cargo traffic for the first six months of 2006.
