Italian Freight start-up Cargoitalia takes road to Delhi

Italian-based freight airline start-up Cargoitalia is this week due to launch flights from its Milan Malpensa base to Chennai and Delhi in India using a McDonnell Douglas DC-10 freighter.
The Indian route will be operated twice-weekly and the aircraft will also fly three weekly frequencies to New York and Chicago.
“Our second aircraft, a Boeing MD-11, is expected mid-May and with its arrival we will be adding other destinations on the same routes,” says Cargoitalia sales vice-president Europe, Middle East and Asia, Massimo Roccasecca.
The fleet will rise to four aircraft by November, using a mix of finance and wet leases and direct ownership.
