GREENBORO, North Carolina air cargo carrier 21 Air has been approved by the US Department of Transportation to perform scheduled service flights between the US and Mexico, according to AB Newswire.
The announcement states that two 767 freighters will be deployed into scheduled service on the US-Mexico route. The Department of Transportation's July 10 decision authorises 21 Air to provide foreign air cargo transport of property and mail under a two-year exemption, similar to the services it currently performs domestically.
From 21 Air's website, '21 AIR is the most recently certificated United States FAR 121 All Cargo Carrier, becoming the first Amrican airline of its type with full SMS [Safety Management System] implementation compliance, under newly established commercial aviation regulations.
The airline has been authorised to conduct interstate and foreign air transportation of property and mail operating Boeing 767 All Cargo aircraft.'
Founded in February 2014 to provide aircraft, crew, maintenance and insurance (ACMI), CMI and charter services for cargo consolidators, 21 Air's customers include German postal, transport and logistics giant Deutsche Post DHL Group, Swiss third-party logistics provider Ceva Logistics (CEVA.SW) and the nation's largest transportation company UPS.
