HALIFAX - A new international air cargo service will begin operations Tuesday at the Halifax Stanfield International Airport.
Asiana Cargo will operate scheduled weekly service from Halifax to Brussels, Belgium, and Seoul, South Korea.
The company, a division of Korean-based Asiana Airlines, will fly a Boeing 747-400F.
The primary export will be lobster and other seafood bound for overseas markets.
With a volume allotment of up to 50 tonnes, the airport says each flight could represent upwards of $500,000 of export value to the Nova Scotia economy.
Asiana Cargo provides scheduled service between Seoul and several cities in North America including Los Angeles, San Francisco, Chicago, New York, Anchorage and Calgary.
