Air Mauritius prepares for ICS2, expands partnership with CHAMP
CHAMP’s Traxon Global Customs can provide advance customs information quickly and reduce risks of holds or fines
Air Mauritius joins the air cargo community as it prepares to adopt the new European Union (EU) Import Control System 2 (ICS2) regulation.
"Air Mauritius, which plays a key role in the Mauritian tourism sector, is committed to strengthening the local economy and establishing ties with the rest of the world, including through air cargo," says an official release from CHAMP Cargosystems.
Air Mauritius, already using CHAMP’s Traxon Global Customs (TGC) for select countries, has expanded it to a worldwide contract, including the EU, the release added. "Air cargo and mail shipments carried to or via EU member states are required to comply with the new ICS2 regulation as failure to do so could result in penalties or delays. TGC can automatically provide the necessary advance customs information quickly and easily to reduce the risks of holds or fines. With continuous updates to its operations, including the ICS2 implementation, Air Mauritius will always remain ahead of the curve when new customs regulations are introduced, regardless of the country."
Laurent Recoura, Chief Commercial Officer, Air Mauritius says: “Air Mauritius is upgrading its reservations systems to match the EU requirements in terms of customs clearance through our extended partnership with CHAMP Cargosystems. This is one of Air Mauritius initiatives to ensure we deliver the best service to our customers.”
Nicholas Xenocostas, Chief Commercial Officer, CHAMP Cargosystems adds: “We are delighted to be expanding our partnership with Air Mauritius, helping to connect the airline with the world. With Traxon Global Customs in place, Air Mauritius will have a reliable solution that will support its filing operations, regardless of the changes that come into play.”
With 36,000 tonnes of cargo carried annually, Air Mauritius plays a key role in the economic development of Mauritius, the release added.
