Delta World Charter, in cooperation with its partners MENA Aviation and Iraqi Airways, successfully operated its first 747-200F cargo charter to Iraq on April 22, 2015. The flight was operated on behalf of Delta World Charter (DWC) customer ‘Global Service Solution FZE’. General cargo was delivered to Sulaymaniyah and DGR freight co-loaded at the last minute on the empty leg sector back to Sharjah.
Cargo Chief Commercial Officer of DWC and an accredited IATA DGR agent, commented “We are pleased to have been offered this opportunity by Global Service Solution. We were excited but also knew it was going to be a challenging task because of the somewhat unstable situation in Iraq and the existent regulations.”
He added, “Our success as a company depends on being able to deliver in the toughest of circumstances. The talent, skills and expertise of each one involved in the project functioning as a tightly integrated team is what drives successful results, and I am glad were able to achieve this for this project.”
Owner of Global Service Solution commented, “I would like to thank Delta World Charter team for working on this so tirelessly and making it happen so well. I was wary because of the precarious situation in Iraq, but with the support and exceptional cooperation from everyone involved, the flight to Sulaymaniyah and back was executed in a professional and safe manner.”
