Since 8th December, 2022, Liege Airport welcomed Grímsey, the first 767-300 Boeing Converted Freighter of Icelandair Cargo. Icelandair Cargo has served Liege Airport for years with 6, then 8 weekly flights to Keflavik. In addition to their freighter fleet, they decided to operate more Boeing Converted Freighters (BCF). These more efficient and modern aircraft will augment their growing local and international cargo destinations with more load capacities. For example, Grimsey carries around 50% more freight than their two B757-200 freighters.
With this new Boeing 767-300, the Icelandic airline will continue to expand its airfreight operation with 6 more flights per week from and to Liege Airport. Liege Airport will be connected to New York with 3 flights per week and to Chicago with 3 other flights per week.
Cargo flights to Los Angeles will also be included in April, 2023, with the delivery of the company’s second converted Boeing 767.
Laurent Jossart, CEO of Liege Airport: “These new acquisitions of Icelandair Cargo reflect the airline’s dynamic performance and ambitions. Liege Airport is delighted to welcome this new aircraft. Once more, Liege Airport ranks among Europe’s leading airports for live animals transport as well as for fresh and perishables goods which require appropriate handling. Over the years, Liege Airport has developed internationally recognized expertise in this field”.
