Oman Air Cargo has chosen ECS Group as its sales partner in Europe’s Benelux region, in a contract to be serviced by ECS subsidiary, Globe Air Cargo (GAC).
The airline plans to improve its market presence in the Benelux region and the partnership, which started on 1 April 2017, will provide the carrier with overnight transit cargo volumes to its gateways in Paris, London and Frankfurt.
ECS will market Oman Air’s cargo network from its Muscat hub with flights to destinations in the Middle East, India and Asia, and the airline utilises Airbus A330s across Europe.
Through GAC, ECS Group will represent Oman Air Cargo as an offline sales partner and coordinate the trucking and handling of cargo on behalf of Oman Air from Brussels and Amsterdam, allowing Oman Air Cargo to consolidate cargo volumes and create a strong customer base in the Benelux market.
Oman Air senior vice president – commercial cargo, Mohammed Al Musafir says: “Oman Air Cargo is excited for the new partnership with Globe Air Cargo. This will give us an excellent opportunity to be represented in the Benelux region through a strong local partner.”
“Oman Air Cargo is committed to an aggressive expansion plan, and the Benelux region is of interest to us as we look at expanding our network to better serve our clients worldwide.”
Globe Air Cargo Netherlands managing director, Mariet Zollner says: “We are delighted that Oman Air has chosen Globe Air Cargo. We are confident that our customers will support Oman Air due to their customer friendly approach and the opportunity its network offers to them.”
“Oman Air wants to enhance and develop its cargo business in Europe and ECS Group will proactively support Oman Air with right resources to achieve their plans.”
Oman Air Cargo says it will service customers who are interested in dedicated ULDs to Muscat and to its other destinations across the Middle East, India and Asia.
General cargo of industrial goods will be the main commodity but GAC will help Oman Air develop special and premium products including perishables and pharma.
