Network Airline Management transports tonnes of love

Network Airline Management transports more than 800 tonnes of freshly cut flowers in the run up to International Mother’s Day 2022. Flying into Europe from Nairobi, NAM’s B747 Freighter aircraft have fulfilled this year’s high demand once again to make Mother’s Day that extra bit special.

Network has been working closely with Kenya’s horticulture industry for over 30 years which continues for another year. This year’s schedule saw 4x B747F flights operate each week with the aircraft loaded with flowers including a mix of Roses and Carnations to a maximum payload of 100 tonnes bound for Liege. The flights were overseen by Network’s Kenyan office in Nairobi to ensure a smooth operation from start to finish.

Sam Lindsey, Network Airline Management’s senior commercial manager said: “We are pleased to have successfully supported our key clients during the International Mother’s Day rush and we are extremely happy to help the Kenyan flower industry meet peak demands year after year.”

Network, utilising its managed fleet, maintain a regular schedule of flights into Africa, as well as full or part charters throughout the year to various global destinations.
