The new departure will be tailor made for the seafood export from Norway to Seoul and South Korea via Moscow in Russia.

“AirBridgeCargo is an important part of our aim to facilitate more capacity for the Norwegian seafood industry to our largest trading partners in Asia", says Martin Langaas, Director Cargo at Avinor.

"Freighter routes are boosting the competitiveness of Norwegian Seafood and provide efficient access to our biggest markets in Asia."

In 2018, AirBridgeCargo lifted seafood out of Norway to an estimated export value of approx. half a billion NOK on its 2 weekly freighter departures from Oslo Airport.

"With the new departure, capacity is estimated to increase by another quarter billion NOK in annual export value,” says Langaas.

The new departure will be operated on Tuesdays and will be in addition to the airlines existing Tuesday and Friday departures from Oslo Airport. With the added capacity, AirBridgeCargo will be able to offer the market close to 230 tons of seafood capacity from Oslo Airport on Tuesdays. The route will be operated by the world's largest Western commercial freighter, the Boeing 747-8F.
