I dag lendi stórt frakt flogfar í Føroyum. Hetta er felag hjá FarCargo ið hevur heimstað í Føroyum. Felagið er serliga ætla til at flyta laks frá Bakkafrost á útlendska marknaðin.

Talan er um eitt Boeing 757 flogfar sum lastar um 35 tons av farmi. Hetta er stórt nýbrrot fyri føroyska farmavinnu og flutningsfeløg sum nú kunnu fáa fríska frukt til landið og skip og framleiðsluvirkir kunnu skjótt og lætt fáa maskindeilir heim so raksturin ikki verður darvaður um okkurt gongur galið.

Móttøka verður á flogvøllinum í morgin.

Felagið skrivar á heimasíðu teirra:

First class product to USA

This is a new chapter in Faroese trade history. The aim is to deliver fresh high-quality salmon both in the USA, Israel and other remote markets a mere day after the fish swims in Faroese fjords. We believe this will significantly strengthen our competitiveness. we will now be able to provide our customers with the freshest product on the market. For many years, we have aimed to make progress in the American market, and along with our US processing plant in New Jersey, this initiative will provide us with the opportunity to provide the customers with the best service possible. This new route will ensure prolonged shelf-life due to shortened transportation and an unbroken cooling chain”.

Regin Jacobsen, CEO at Bakkafrost.

Connecting markets

FarCargo will operate between Vágar airport in the Faroe Islands and Newark Intl. airport in New York via Keflavik Airport in Iceland. The return flight from Newark is via Billund Airport in Denmark, a major cargo hub, before returning to the Faroe Islands.

With a range of 7.000 km (4350 miles) we can offer our customers a wide range of destinations within Europe and even the Middle East with our Boeing 757-200F. Maximum payload is 34 T. (75.000 lbs).

This is a great day for us. We’re pleased to have reached this point and are now looking forward to commencing actual operations. This is also an old dream that is now coming true, in particular for initiators Heðin Krett, Hans Meinhard á Høgabóli, and Andrew Djurhuus”.

Birgir Nielsen, CEO at FarCargo.
