EL AL to exit B747 freighters, new deal with ASL and AirBridgeCargo


Israeli flag carrier EL Al has ended its Boeing 747-400 freighter operations in favour of partnerships with ASL Airlines and AirBridgeCargo, reports London's Air Cargo News.
The company has been offering B747-400F services since 2010, and has flown 275,000 tons on the aircraft over the last nine years.
The aircraft's last flight operated between Liege to Tel Aviv and it was returned to the lessor according to the terms of the contract.
The airline held a special event to mark the last flight of the aircraft and introduce its partnerships with ASL and AirBridgeCargo for transporting cargo on its behalf.
Attending the event at Ben Gurion Airport were Russian Ambassador to Israel Anatoly Viktorov, AirBridgeCargo Airlines CEO Sergey Lazarev, EL Al chairman Eli Defes, EL Al CEO Gonen Usishkin, EL Al cargo chief Ronen Shapira and cargo agents.
It added that it was considering using AirBridgeCargo for nonstop flights to Moscow.
"Over the years the aircraft performed several special flights, such as: transporting fire-retardant substances to aid in fire-fighting during the Carmel Forest disaster; humanitarian assistance flights in cooperation with Ministry of Defence offices around the world, and other special flights," the carrier said.
