Network Airline Management (NAM), a division of the Network Aviation Group, and Nairobi-based Astral Aviation have expanded their managed fleet adding a B747-400BCF to their fleet.
The B747-400BCF is wet leased from Air Atlanta Icelandic and joins the B747-400F nose loader also supplied by the Icelandic carrier. This further compliments the two MD11Fs on wet lease from Western Global Airlines.
The B747-400BCF adds much needed extra capacity to NAM’s fleet to further expand routes on NAM’s scheduled network, as well as charter capacity worldwide.
Andy Leslie, group chairman, says: “We are excited to take delivery of the B747-400BCF further expanding our managed fleet and partnership with Air Atlanta Icelandic.
“This additional capacity enables us to further develop our presence in Africa and our existing scheduled network.”
The B747-400BCF is being delivered to NAM’s European hub in Liege, Belgium, and being put to work immediately flying on its scheduled network to Africa.
Network Aviation Group comprises Network Airline Services, Network Cargo Management and ANA Aviation Services together representing more than 32 airlines, including Nairobi, Kenya-based Astral Aviation, in its capacity as a general sales and services agent (GSSA).

The group handles over 100,000 tonnes of cargo annually offering a variety of sales and services to client airlines, as well as managing a fleet of freighter aircraft on a network of scheduled routes and charters throughout the world.
