Charter packed with automotive parts flown to Turkey


An urgent shipment of automotive parts have been chartered from Romania to Turkey by the X2 Critical Member EAS Group.

The 25-tonne payload was transported by the freight forwarder using an Airbus A310 Freighter, and was deemed ‘top urgent’ in order to avoid any production delays in the car manufacturer’s factory.


EAS development director, Marco Muggianu says: “The operation was very difficult due to the very bad weather conditions in Romania including snow, ice and minus 15 degree temperatures.”

He adds when the cargo is ‘top urgent’ shippers depend on professional freight forwarders like EAS to provide “world class service” 24/7 and 365 days per year.

Muggianu says he reached out to fellow X2 Critical Member Qualitair & Sea Istanbul (QAS). In collaboration they chartered the A310F and loaded the aircraft. He adds the operation was prepared, shipped and arrived in less than 24 hours door-to-door.
