25DEC20 / 0600Z - Friday Night Flight: Christmas Day Deliveries @ Global Hubs


Welcome to this week’s FNF! This event falls on December 25th, a day that for many is Christmas Day. Whilst half the world grinds to a halt to celebrate this, global cargo traffic most certainly does not. Those late gifts and other important deliveries are still making their way around the world, and this event will be part of that! This event was chosen by you, our community, after winning over 50% of the vote!

There are no set hubs for this week, and instead, we are going for a global approach. This means you can choose more routes, and it allows IFATC to not have to worry about extreme traffic at one airport. After all, Christmas is about family for many people! Open airports will include London Stansted, Leipzig, Hong Kong, and Anchorage, to name a few.

Both Frankfurt and Doncaster Airports will also be opened, allowing you to fly the temporary food delivery flights by Lufthansa. You can read more on this here:

  • Central America and Central Asia
  • Western Europe and South East Asia
  • North America and Central Europe

@thenewpilot ,
It’s simple supply and demand really. The grounding of most passenger flights reduced supply of airfreight to the point it offsett the reduction in freight demand. Moreover, air cargo demand for PPE shipments kept the air cargo industry insulated from market forces.


Just a heads up, GOOY was closed down more than a year ago, the operations were relocated to the newer GOBD (Blaise Diagne Airport), either way, love the FNF theme.

Nice fnf. I got a really special flight for this one
