2011-09-11First cargo flight to the USA

Friday 9 September this year was a historic moment at Katowice Airport in Pyrzowice. On this day, air carrier FedEx made its maiden cargo charter flight to the United States of America, performed by a McDonnell Douglas MD-11F aircraft, in the history of the airport in Pyrzowice. The aircraft, which flew in to Katowice Airport from Dehli, accepted 70 tons of electronics equipment to one of the largest cargo airports in the world - Dallas Fort Worth. The USA now adds to the list of long distance cargo operations performed this year from Katowice Airport. This list already boasts destinations such as Japan, South Africa and Argentina. We hope you enjoy the photos of Friday's arrival of the MD-11F in our gallery and the broadcast on Television Silesia.
