Allied Air extends contract for two World Airways MD-11F freighters

World Airways (Atlanta) has extended its cooperation with Allied Air Cargo for the lease of two McDonnell Douglas MD-11F aircraft beginning in January 2012 for service between Europe and various cities in Africa. World Airways, a subsidiary of Global Aviation Holdings Inc., began operating aircraft for Allied Air in October 2008.

Allied Air is a Nigerian all-cargo airline operating four Boeing 727 freighters in addition to the two MD-11 freighters leased from World Airways. Allied works closely with its worldwide sales agent, ANA Aviation Services, to provide scheduled flights and ad hoc charter services. Allied Air carries more than 400 tons per week of fresh flowers and vegetables from both Kenya and Uganda to the major European markets in Holland and the United Kingdom.
