Senator International has added a weekly cargo flight between Greenville-Spartanburg International Airport and Queretaro Intercontinental Airport (QRO) near Mexico City. The flight departs from GSP on Sundays and returns to GSP on Mondays. Boeing 747-400 aircraft is used for the service.
“We are excited to support Senator International in their expansion of services,” said Kevin Howell, GSP senior vice president and COO, in a news release. “These new flights to QRO are another opportunity for manufacturers to move materials, parts and products quickly and more efficiently. More and more companies are discovering GSP is a great alternative to the slower turnaround time at the crowded traditional air cargo gateways.”
Queretaro is located in Mexico’s Bajio region, which is home to automotive, aerospace and production operations, the release said.
In 2016, Senator started twice-weekly service with its “Senator Atlantic Bridge” between GSP, Munich (MUN) and Frankfurt-Hahn (HHN) in Germany. As a result of increased customer demand, Senator has steadily added flights from GSP to HHN during the past 18 months. During the month of June, Senator will operate eight round-trip flights from GSP per week, according to the release.
