Olympics Notes: Charter Airline To Offer Weekly Cargo Service To Sochi For Olympics

Charter airline Air Partner has launched a new weekly cargo service from Frankfurt to Sochi for the 2014 Winter Olympics. The Air Partner will operate a cargo service every Monday morning between Nov. 18 and Feb. 7 directly to Sochi. Sochi’s remote geographical location means that it is not particularly well served by European airlines, meaning there is limited airfreight capacity directly from Europe (Air Partner). ... Malaysia Youth & Sports Minister Khairy Jamaluddin has "pledged to give squash all the support it needs in its bid to get into the 2020 Olympics" (THE STAR, 6/5).
