Fargo Jet Center, an FBO at North Dakota’s Fargo International Airport, is assisting with a global beef airlift to Astana, Kazakhstan. Starting this month, about two flights will depart for Kazakhstan per week, each loaded with approximately 195 North Dakota cattle. A total of 14 flights are scheduled. This year’s operation will for the first time employ Korean Airlines and Boeing 747-400s, according to Darren Hall, Fargo Jet Center’s vice president. “We are again excited about the opportunity to support the growth in exports from North Dakota and in cargo operations at Fargo’s Hector International Airport,” Hall said.
