With an expanding fleet of B747-400Fs, B757-200 & A330-200, National Airlines offers premium charter services for cargo and passenger operations across the globe.
The National Air Cargo Holdings became one amongst very few companies that transformed from a freight forwarder to a fully-fledged airline (integrator), by acquiring the first fleet of aircraft in the mid-2000s. National Airlines commenced operations in 2006. Although the journey started with the historic narrow-bodied DC-8s, there were constant investments made to modernize the fleet over the next few years. Today, National Airlines has a rapidly expanding fleet of six B747-400Fs alongside the B757-200 and A330-200 offering premium cargo and passenger services across the planet.
National Airlines has the Part 121 FAA license alongside the CARB (Commercial Airlift Review Board) certification and is also a CRAF (Civil Reserve Air Fleet) carrier, making National one of the prime US DOD (United States Department of Defense) transporters in the industry. On the other hand, with an extensive operational knowledge and global expertise in commercial charters operating from the East to West, National has always been in a position to lead a sustainable way forward for global transport and logistics. As a global airline, besides regional hubs in the United States, National Airlines operates numerous flights across the six continents and currently employs over 600 people worldwide.
"For once you have tasted flight, you will walk the earth with your eyes turned skyward, for there you have been, and there you will long to return.” – Leonardo Da Vinci
