AIA Cargo appointed as GSA for Cobalt Air


Cobalt Air has appointed Airbridge International Agencies Ltd (AIA Cargo) as its worldwide cargo general sales agent (GSA).

This marks another positive milestone in the development of Cobalt Air, Cyprus’ fastest growing airline, and will enable it to generate additional revenues across its growing network by maximising its capacity.

Cobalt Air operates scheduled services using a fleet of six Airbus A319s and A320s from its home base at Larnaca to airports in Greece, the UK, Belgium, Spain, Israel, Ireland, and France and recently announced flights to Iran.

AIA Cargo says it will focus on building new business for both Cobalt Air and for Cyprus, generating new revenue opportunities by transporting general and special cargo, mail, as well as pets from across the airline’s network, using the Larnaca base for both imports and exports, as well as a hub connecting the Cobalt Air international network.

AIA Cargo will oversee all areas of the cargo business including marketing, sales, reservations, handling and all cargo interline agreements and its main focus will be on maximising new revenue opportunities for Cobalt Air.

Cobalt Air chief executive officer, Andrew Madar says: “As Cobalt Air looks to build on our position as the fastest growing airline in Cyprus, we are constantly looking to extend and grow our services. This new partnership with AIA Cargo, allows us to build revenue opportunities through import and export, and maximising Cyprus as a hub between Asia, Middle East, Africa, and Europe.”

AIA Cargo vice president, Ben Leon adds: “We are delighted and proud to have been chosen as Cobalt Air’s Cargo partner. Our offices across Cobalt Air’s existing and future destinations are already at work to build this new cargo product to help build Cobalt Air’s business.

“In addition to our cargo GSA services, our friendly and experienced Pet Travel and Relocation service, AIA Pets will assist all four-legged travellers to travel safely and comfortably on Cobalt Air.”
