AlphaSky (JAG, Shymkent) is looking to add a B757-200(F) to its fleet, with the cargo carrier already promoting the availability of this aircraft on its social media.

The company told Cargo Facts it will take delivery of the new freighter in early April and expects another one later this year. “Services we provide: air transportation of goods on own Boeing B737-400(F), B757-200F,” the company announced on its Instagram account.

With no actual registration or msn yet revealed, Cargo Facts reported that AlphaSky’s first B757 could in fact be B757-200(PCF) VQ-BPY (msn 25597), currently stored at Istanbul Sabiha Gökcen, which had its last recorded flight on May 22, 2023, according to Flightradar24 ADS-B data.

VQ-BPY was supposed to go to FarCargo, a Faroese virtual carrier that launched one-off commercial operations on March 5, 2024, shipping Faroese salmon from Faroe Islands Vágar mainly to New York Newark via Reykjavik Keflavik, as ch-aviation previously reported. The aircraft was even spotted with FarCargo’s livery. However, the debut operations were operated by West Atlantic Sweden (T2, Malmö) on behalf of FarCargo onboard SE-RLN (msn 32379), due to a lack of permanent certification from the airport for B757 operations.

AlphaSky also wants to add two B767-300Fs to its fleet, as it plans scheduled freighter services between Kazakhstan and the United Arab Emirates. No further details have been given.

ch-aviation has reached out to AlphaSky for comment on the airline’s future B757Fs. The airline currently operates a single B737-400(F), which entered the fleet in July 2023.
