Northern Air Cargo Expands Fleet Size, Capabilities
Anchorage based Northern Air Cargo (NAC) announced today that it is adding a 737-300 aircraft to its fleet. The aircraft will be used to support existing Alaska business as well as the company’s expanding presence in the US domestic and international cargo markets.

"The 300 represents the next step for our company as we seek to continue modernizing our infrastructure and the services we can provide our customers", said David Karp, NAC President & Chief Executive Officer.
The company expects to take delivery of the aircraft in Anchorage by November 1 of this year.
