Emergency plan: Prevention Covid-19, USA: SENATOR Atlantic Bridge

Dear Sir or Madam,

Emergency plan: Prevention Covid-19

In Germany, the corona peak has not yet been reached. The executive branch, authorities, institutions and our industry are taking extensive measures. SENATOR is acting with due caution and prudence. Thanks to good preparation, many employees are able to work from home.

We were able to take this approach successfully in China. Operations were maintained continuously. While improvements are notable in many regions there, the wave is intensifying in Europe. Italy remains the most affected. In Germany, we are doing our bit and reducing the risk of the virus spreading.

Office attendance is reduced to necessary tasks. Employees with day-care and school-age children are prioritized in home office selection. Operational processing remains fully guaranteed. We are closely following further developments. Employees can be reached at their usual contact details. All services will continue to be carried out.

SENATOR Atlantic Bridge

Things are now tight on the North Atlantic. Passenger flights have been the backbone of air cargo capacity between Europe and North America for decades. Now they are being cancelled left, right and centre. At the same time, demand is high. Therefore, a bit of advertising – because really good solutions are now more in demand than ever.

SENATOR INTERNATIONAL is expanding the flight schedule of its self-managed cargo flights between Frankfurt-Hahn (HHN) and Greenville-Spartanburg (GSP) from 18.03.2020. The SENATOR Atlantic Bridge (“SAB”) uses cargo aircraft of the type B747-400F.

Since 2016, this stable connection has served to support the Atlantic cargo space requirements between the USA and Europe. The service is now being expanded. Until now, SENATOR INTERNATIONAL has been flying 4 times a week across the Atlantic. In future, there will be daily departures – 7 times a week.

"Right now, our customers need a strong partner at their side who responds flexibly and offers planning security for transports especially to and from North America", said Tim-Oliver Kirschbaum, CEO of SENATOR INTERNATIONAL.

Since the beginning of 2016, “SAB” customers have benefited from tailor-made transport services and fast freight handling, even on the ground. Exclusive-use handling areas on both continents enables accelerated throughput times. Pre- and on-carriage concepts in the USA and Europe round off the service for customers.

We will gladly keep you informed.
