Friday afternoon a Western Global Airlines Boeing 747-400F aircraft visited the Prince George Airport for a technical fuelling stop. The cargo plane’s stop was a time-sensitive operation, only stopping long enough to refuel and get back in the air.
Prince George Airport is in talks with a number of air carriers to provide technical stops for their flights. “Tech stops” can involve the provision of fuel, catering, water and other services, but do not include the loading or unloading passengers or cargo.
“This is excellent business for the airport, we are well-equipped to handle it, and we look forward to welcoming more airlines to our facility.” said John Gibson, President and CEO of the airport.
The 747-400F freighter was en route from Sweden to Japan.
