Antigua-based Wadadli Cargo plans to begin operations with a 737-800F and an ATR 72-200F in the second half of 2021, becoming Antigua and Barbuda’s only cargo carrier.
The startup told Cargo Facts it has no plans to obtain its own air operator’s certificate (AOC), and will therefore hand the aircraft over to a CMI operator.
“Wadadli Cargo is committed to providing reliable, consistent cargo operations for shippers and receivers. We do this by flying smaller, more fuel-efficient airplanes with lower costs, and through increased frequency of shipments beyond what existing services offer.
We will be the first cargo airline to maintain this service throughout the year and not operate our aircraft on other routes without our core routes being fulfilled,” according to its website.
