The JP Airline Fleet 2008 showes the following aircraft
When Cargo B Airlines was founded in 2007, it intended to operate from Brussels routes to the Middle East, Far East, Africa & S.America, with 2 (leased) 747s. A third Boeing 747-200F was also going to be leased thru 3P Air Freighters, but this never took place.
Investors included PMV, QAT and Petercam Services.
Cargo B started operations on 14Oct07.
Routes included Brussels to Sao Paulo (Viracopos), returning via Quito (Ecuador) and Bogotá (Colombia), as well as to Johannesburg (South Africa-JNB), returning via Nairobi (Kenya-NBO).
The Board of Directors of Cargo B Airlines consisted of the founders of the airline: Robert Kuijpers as President and CEO. Niek van der Weide was EVP Commercial and Arno Broes the EVP Operations. Gerard ter Bruggen became Director Cargo and Dirk Vrebos Director Operations. I personally remember Niek and Gerard while working for Martinair, a competitor on Cargo B's routes.
On 27Oct08 OO-CBA suffered a tailstrike at Brussels.
In Dec.2008 it became known that Cargo B Airlines was to take delivery of two new B747-400F freighters, formerly owned/operated by NCA - Nippon Cargo Airlines (KZ/Tokyo Narita). NCA was also planning to take a stake in Cargo B.
