The world’s leading air cargo charter broker, Chapman Freeborn, has launched a number of scheduled air cargo services to further unlock the continent’s potential for its international client base.

Chapman Freeborn’s team in Africa has introduced a new scheduled service from Johannesburg (JNB) to Lubumbashi (FBM) and Kinshasa (FIH) in the Democratic Republic of Congo.

Johannesburg is a major air cargo centre and can accommodate wide body freighters from North America, Latin America, Europe, the Middle East, Asia and Australia – making it an ideal hub for transshipment traffic.

The award-winning cargo charter broker has also been operating a Fokker F27 aircraft for over a year; the freighter is being utilised for work including humanitarian relief cargo and transiting equipment involved in mining, telecoms, and the energy industry, as well as other industry sectors in the region. The Fokker F27 freighter can perform a maximum uplift of 5.8 tons.
