To meet Europe´s growing demand for mangoes, AIR FRANCE KLM MARTINAIR Cargo has teamed up with Fermac Cargo Espana in operating a new freighter route from Abidjan, Ivory Coast, to Madrid, Spain. On April 19, a shipment of 90 tons of Kent mangoes – a very popular variety in Europe – were offloaded at Barajas Airport, which is a key entry point for European foodstuffs. On their side, Fermac Cargo Espana provides services such as mango inspection, customs clearance etc. Six more B777-200 freighter flights, carrying no less than 300 tons of this delicious fruit, have been operated in recent weeks .
Mexican mangoes are also being flown in for sale in Europeans stores. This season we expect to carry around 500 tons on nine flights a week from Mexico to Amsterdam and Paris.
