Air New Zealand ceasing round-the-world freighter service

Air Cargo World has reported that Air New Zealand is to cease its round-the-world B747-400F service (the aircraft has been wet leased from Atlas) from the end of March 2009. The routing of the current service, which started in 2005, is Auckland-Melbourne-Shanghai-Frankfurt-Chicago-Auckland (see previous post).

On 22 January 2009 Qantas announced that it would be routing a once-weekly B747F service from New York and Chicago to Melbourne via Auckland (AKL).
