Saab aeroplane in flight

Extended air line haul now operational

03 July 2017

We are delighted to announce extensions to our air line-haul operation are now operational.

Prompted by increasing demand from our clients and the wider market, Carousel has now doubled the capacity on its flight from Karlsruhe-Baden-Baden near Frankfurt, by upgrading its aircraft to a Saab 340 freighter. It has also added a new route from Birmingham airport to Dublin.

As well as this extension, Carousel has also announced plans for a new route from Weeze, Northern Germany, into Birmingham. The Weeze route captures key industrial locations in Northern Germany, as well as in the Netherlands and Belgium.

About the new service

The new service from Birmingham to Dublin creates a complete three-leg rotation that runs overnight, every week day between Karlsruhe-Baden-Baden, Birmingham and Dublin providing the latest cut-off and earliest arrival times possible. It is also available for weekend routes too.

The schedule for the flights is as follows:


Depart FKB    -        21.45

Arrive BHX     -        22.45

Depart BHX    -        00.30

Arrive DUB     -        02.00


Providing reliable end-to-end logistics solutions, particularly for critical parts, the new service plays an important part in further developing the company’s By:NIGHT service option.

Other benefits of Carousel’s air line-haul include later collection times from Europe, more control and visibility over the supply chain, as well as a direct link into Carousel’s trusted network.

“It gives me great pleasure to announce the extension to our air line haul. By adding more routes and a bigger capacity on our Frankfurt-Baden route, we can offer more businesses the reliable, end to end logistics solutions that the market so desperately craves. We’ve worked carefully to set these routes up and to ensure we deliver nothing less than excellence. With operational efficiencies always at the forefront of our minds, we’ve been able to extend the cut off times, to bring even more flexibility, while our 30 years of experience and proven track record gives our clients the peace of mind of a reliable service that will always deliver on its promises.” GRAHAM MARTIN CEO AT CAROUSEL
