TNT Airways obtains ETOPS 180 certification

TNT Airways obtained the ETOPS 180 certification for the Boeing 777 aircraft. After becoming ETOPS 90 on 1 September and ETOPS 120 in November, this was the ultimate target the company wanted to reach for this aircraft type. With ETOPS 180, TNT Airways is now allowed to fly over oceans or deserted stretches of land, 180 minutes away from any diversion airport. Even if one engine fails, the company can continue for 3 hours to the nearest diversion airport. This will enable the airline to fly more direct routes, save on fuel and reduce CO2 emissions. TNT Airways is the very first company in Belgium to obtain this qualification.

TNT brings Canadian lobster to European tables


A TNT Airways Boeing 747 freighter transported 75 tons of Atlantic Canadian lobster from Halifax to Brussels on Wednesday 21 December. The holiday treat was then distributed throughout the Netherlands, Germany and France, just in time for last-minute Christmas shopping. TNT Express operates a scheduled service at the Halifax Stanfield International Airport every Saturday. Wednesday’s extra flight was especially arranged to pick up fresh lobster trucked in from Nova Scotia. Lobster from Atlantic Canada accounts for 55 per cent of the worldwide market, according to a report prepared last year for the Lobster Council of Canada. Canadian exporters hope that Europe’s appetite for lobster, a traditional holiday treat, will withstand economic worries.
