New Cargo Carrier Takes Flight in Florida

[Aviation Today 08-05-2014] Western Global Airlines (WGA), a low cost, all-cargo carrier based in Sarasota, Fla., announced that it received final FAA certification and has been issued a Part 121 Air Operator Certificate. In addition, WGA has been certified by the U.S. DOT to begin interstate and foreign air transportation of property and mail. The company will begin operations immediately with a fleet of MD-11Fs leased from Neff Air LLC, an affiliated leasing company.

Former Southern Air founder and CEO Jim Neff expects the airline to benefit from the current shortage of wide-body cargo carriers on the market.
