Jota Aviation’s cargo services have taken off with a BAE 146-300 Freighter taking a shipment of automotive parts to Liverpool.
The aircraft, which has a payload of 12 tonnes, flew from its base at London Southend Airport and arrived in Liverpool ahead of schedule to pick up the load.
Jota Aviation chief executive officer, Andy Green says: “The introduction of the freight variant of the 146 into our fleet has taken a lot of hard work across the whole team at Jota, and it was hugely rewarding for the team to see the first revenue flight depart, on time of course!
“We have geared the operation around rapid response, with the customer given a price and schedule option within five minutes, with the aircraft departed within 90 minutes of confirmation.”
