Challenge Group offers scheduled Liège and Dubai link

16MAY24 saw the launch of Challenge Group’s regular Thursday flight from Liège (LGG) to Dubai World Central (DWC), via Tel Aviv (TLV). The first two weeks will see a B747F service offering a 120-ton cargo capacity and from June onwards, this will double as two flights per week, departing on Tuesdays and Fridays, operated by B767-300BDSF aircraft, join the schedule. Coming back and making the most of Challenge Group’s Liège hub in linking the Gulf with Europe and the U.S., is a weekly capacity offer on 100 tons out of Dubai. The services were installed in response to increasing customer demand in these regions. The route itself is not new: Challenge Group operated a number of charter flights from Dubai during the pandemic, and it will continue to offer bespoke end-to-end logistics solutions to its customers, particularly for complex cargo which it is best known for. The new scheduled service will see loads consisting of a mix of general cargo and specialized shipments such as aircraft engines, live animals, pharmaceuticals, perishables, dangerous goods, or high-tech & e-commerce products. GSA GLOBAL CARGO LLC is responsible for the group’s operations in Dubai, “ensuring effective capacity management and local expertise,” the release explains. It also states: “This new route underscores Challenge Group’s dedication to strengthening its network, providing comprehensive logistics solutions, and delivering exceptional service globally.”

This initiative is a natural extension of our successful service between Mumbai and Liège, enhancing our global presence.
