Air France-KLM-Martinair Cargo is pleased to announce extra capacity to anticipate the peak flower demand for Valentine's Day.

From 30 January to 9 February, more than 800 tons of flowers originating from Kenya (NBO) and Andean countries (UIO and BOG) will be flown to Europe where Air France-KLM-Martinair Cargo holds the strongest market share. This is in addition to the regular flower transport.

Once again this year, by adding full charter flights and aircraft upgrades, Air France-KLM-Martinair Cargo is proud to show its commitment and dedication to the flower industry.

The largest part of this additional capacity is aimed primarily at supplying the British, Dutch and Russian markets with fresh cut flowers.

One full charter will operate between Nairobi and Amsterdam on behalf of the Dutch Flower Group (DFG) companies. DFG is a family of over 30 trading companies specialising in fresh cut flowers, mixed bouquets and plants.

This extra capacity comes on top of the DFG allocations of Air France-KLM-Martinair Cargo regular freighter services, which are planned by Airflo and managed from Kenya by DFG Africa in Nairobi.

Marco van Zijverden, CEO Dutch Flower Group and Eelco van Asch, SVP Air France-KLM-Martinair Cargo met in a flower-friendly environment to sign the ongoing cooperation between the two companies.
