Alitalia Cargo uplifts record 54 tonne load from Delhi to Rome

Italian national flag carrier Alitalia, which has been operating its weekly cargo only passenger flights from India since June 2020, created a milestone figure of successfully uplifting 53,626 kilos on a single flight from Delhi (DEL) to Rome (FCO). The Boeing 777-300ER that was deployed on this route had its seats removed to accommodate the maximum volume of cargo. The ULD planning was carefully monitored for maximum utilisation of space on the newly cargo-only reconfigured aircraft. It had an optimum mix of high density cargo along with pharmaceuticals, dangerous goods, auto parts and garments, which helped achieve the desired result.

Air Logistics Group (ALG), the GSSA for Alitalia Cargo, is extremely proud to deliver and support the freight forwarding community giving them global solutions for transport of freight on Alitalia operating weekly flights from both Delhi and Mumbai to connect its network into Italy/Europe, North America and North Africa. "The milestone reflects our commitment towards our customers during these challenging times. With reduced flight schedules due to Covid-19, it’s now of paramount importance to maximise every cargo space,” says Antonio Temporini, vice president, Alitalia Cargo. "India is a very important market for the Alitalia Cargo-worldwide network and having Air Logistics Group as our partner in India, we are sure to enhance our services from all key ports in the country,” he adds.

Sakshi Gupta, country manager, Air Logistics Group (ALG) says, "The pandemic has created and set new goals and benchmarks for all stakeholders. As the supply and demand soars, air cargo has come forth to become a robust saviour for the aviation industry and finally everyone has realised that cargo is not just a filler but a very strategic and core part of the industry."
