Challenge Group launches Mumbai flights

Challenge Group has added a second Boeing 767 on services between Liege and Mumbai to establish twice-weekly services.

The twice-weekly Boeing 767 services offer 52 tons per flight mainly carrying pharmaceuticals and electronics.

Or Zak, Chief Commercial Officer of Challenge Group, says, “Given that India is striving to become the factory of the world, and the production of key verticals has significantly increased during the past few years, our strategic decision to now launch a regular and direct India-Europe service goes some way towards satisfying the intense customer demand on this route.”

Zak says Challenge Group has done charter operations to various airports in India including Delhi, Hyderabad and Bengaluru, and roadshows in Mumbai and Delhi to engage with stakeholders in the logistics industry.

He says, “Our participation in the recent Air Cargo India event in February further solidified our presence and network within the sector, paving the way for the successful introduction of our Mumbai freighter service.”

Challenge Group’s Indian cargo capacity is managed by its GSSA partner, Rainbow Aviation.
