Texel Air Australasia (TNZ, Auckland International) has begun operating a four-strong B737-800(BCF) fleet for logistics operator Team Global Express, formally launching the service at a hangar event in Brisbane this week. Texel will provide the capacity to Team Global Express on an ACMI basis for the next seven years.

The four aircraft to be used on the contract are ZK-TXA (msn 33013), ZK-TXB (msn 29644), ZK-TXC (msn 33798), and ZK-TXD (msn 35092) and primarily run domestic sectors within Australia, but also some short offshore routes to New Zealand and Norfolk Island. The Team Global Express contract was formerly held by Airwork NZ (Auckland International). Texel Australasia's fifth B737-800BCF services a contract for Parceline Express, a subsidiary of Freightways NZ and New Zealand Post.

Meanwhile, local cargo ACMI competitor Nauru Airlines (Nauru) also appears to have acquired additional work from Team Global Express and added a third aircraft to their operations servicing their contract with the logistics company. A B737-800(SF) registered as VH-8TG (msn 33003) began exclusively operating services for Team Global Express on May 31, 2024, mainly on the Brisbane International - Cairns - Darwin triangle. The airline already has its two B737-300(SF)s flying for Team Global Express on ACMI terms.
