Western Global Airlines has made this announcement:
Western Global Airlines is pleased to announce that it has entered into a three-year agreement with Flexport to provide dedicated 747-400 freighter scheduled service between Hong Kong and Los Angeles beginning on April 5, 2018.
Western Global’s CEO and Founder, Jim Neff stated: “Our partnership with Flexport is a significant milestone because it will enable our two companies to join forces to revolutionize the traditional air cargo platform for the 21st century. Both Flexport and WGA were founded in 2013, and both have taken customer-focused approaches based on new technology. They have grown rapidly to become leaders and innovators in their respective business segments, and as such are natural partners in changing the air freight dynamic together. I believe that WGA’s responsive and robust service will allow Flexport to strongly serve their customer base both in Asia and the US.”
The initial service starting in April will be roundtrip twice per week between Hong Kong and Los Angeles growing to three times per week in September.
Based in Florida, minutes from the Southwest Florida International Airport, Western Global is a FAA Certified 121 all cargo airline operating its owned fleet of Boeing 747-400F and McDonnell Douglas MD-11F freighter airplanes worldwide for many of the top airlines, express companies, logistics providers, humanitarian and relief organizations, and the US DOD.
