NEWLY merged DSV Panalpina will deploy its Atlas Air-operated 747-8 freighter between Alabama's Huntsville (HSV) and Shanghai (PVG) three times per week in the face of flight cancellations arising from the coronavirus outbreak.

DSV Panalpina estimates the widespread effort to stop the spread of coronavirus has resulted in a daily air freight capacity reduction of about 5,000 tonnes, reported New York's Air Cargo World.



As a stopgap measure, the 747-8F will operate east- and westbound three times each week, with Huntsville operating as the hub for distribution of DSV Panalpina's volumes to and from China.



'Taking advantage of the Huntsville hub-and-spoke model, we can connect all continents via our DSV-controlled charter network and ensure DSV ground handling at uncongested airports,' the third-party logistics provider said in a statement.
