Skyport handles urgently needed automobile components for Air Charter Service
Skyport handled over 11 tonnes of automobile components on six distinct charter flights organised by Air Charter Service (ACS) to Girona–Costa Brava Airport in Spain within two weeks.
Skyport supported with the urgent charter flight delivery of critical automobile spare parts from Poland to Spain via Prague Airport (PRG), Czech Republic.
Within two weeks, Skyport handled over 11 tonnes of automobile components on six distinct charter flights organised by Air Charter Service (ACS) to Girona–Costa Brava Airport in Spain.
The cargo was flown to its final destination using both ATR-42 and Saab 340 aircraft.
"We have been working with ACS for some time now and during the past month our co-operation has been very intense, with six different orders being accommodated," said David Adamek, Chief Executive Officer (CEO), Skyport. "Our successful collaboration has been of key importance in ensuring global automotive production continued uninterrupted."
The motor parts for each shipment were trucked from Poland to the Czech Republic and were already in route when Skyport was called in to help prepare the cargo at PRG for its further flight.
The cargo handler quickly mobilised to provide speedy cargo handling services at its Prague Airport station, completing the exports within two hours of receipt.
As a result, it took around six hours from the initial communication with Skyport to the flight leaving PRG with the automobile components on board.
"ACS thanks Skyport for their assistance on these flights; it is a pleasure to have an agile, reliable, and effective handling partner in the centre of Europe," said James Fitzgerald, managing director, Air Charter Service. "We couldn't have done it without Skyport's help at Prague Airport and we look forward to more successful collaboration with the team in the future."
With these express projects, ACS and Skyport's collaboration has helped ensure urgently required spare parts arrived in Spain in time to prevent disruption to the car manufacturing supply chain.
Skyport has been serving the automotive industry for 15 years, handling both spare parts and complete cars, deploying only its most senior teams to handle this sensitive cargo in strict adherence to IATA's Dangerous Good Regulations manual.
