An LCC that just can't let go of cargo business
One year after announcing its gradual return into the air cargo business, JetBlue says it is to team up with Aeronex Cargo to launch a new cargo offering, introducing its Miami FL (USA)-based partner as "specialists in delivering turnkey air cargo managed services to low-cost airlines" focused on "providing fast and reliable air cargo services to the registered freight forwarders as well as known shippers".
Services will begin with a traditional air-to-air offering in Fort Lauderdale (FLL). This service will first be expanded with a drop-off point at Miami airport, one of the USA's top five busiest cargo airports, where Aeronex Cargo will pick up and transport goods to FLL. By the end of this year, JetBlue and Aeronex Cargo expect to open additional cargo operations at New York JFK, Los Angeles and Boston. (ah)
