Nauru Airlines launches freighter service

8:36 am on 23 August 2014

Nauru Airlines has announced its freighter service at Nauru International Airport.

Its chief executive, Geoff Bowmaker, says the service will address freight and cargo backlog issues of the past.

Mr Bowmaker says its aircraft type took into consideration a number of aspects, including what was best for take off and landing rates, and loading capacity.

He says its new trading name, Nauru Airlines, is the start of a new era and while servicing the region the airlines' focus should be on serving Nauru first.
