New US freighter airline 7 Air is planning to launch regional cargo services in the first quarter of next year. The carrier will launch operations in February next year using a single next-generation Boeing 737 freighter.
The airline has plans to add three more 737 aircraft within the first year of operations.
However, it has no current plans to expand the fleet beyond four aircraft.
“The initial aircraft will be dedicated to the provision of all-cargo operations with primary operations from Miami to 48 contiguous states, District of Columbia, Central and South America, Caribbean, Mexico, Canada, and Alaska,” the airline said in a Department of Transportation filing.
“That business will provide 7 AIR a reliable and substantial stream of revenue from the outset of operations, establishing a firm foundation upon which to build.”
The airline shares ownership with Xtreme Aviation Holding, which owns leasing and repair businesses.
