Air Italy partners with GSSA giant Globe Air Cargo USA for US cargo ops
Sep 20, 2018: Globe Air Cargo USA, a subsidiary of the ECS Group, has been appointed as the general sales agent (GSA) for Air Italy’s US cargo operations from September 1.
“Globe Air Cargo USA intends to open up new logistical solutions for the American market with direct daily flights for Milan (MXP) from Miami and New York thanks to the 10 tonne cargo capacity of the Air Italy fleet (A330),” said the general sales and service agent through a statement.
The Meridiana airline was first created on March 29, 1963 in Olbia (Italy) and became Air Italy in February 2018 after the major strategic overhaul brought about when Qatar Airways bought out 49 percent of its parent company, AQA Holding.
Air Italy has expanded, and continues to expand, its network; opening up new routes to India, Thailand and the United States out of Milan Malpensa (MXP).
Globe Air Cargo USA will be able to commercialise routes such as Bangkok (BKK), New Delhi (DEL), Mumbai (BOM) and Lagos (LOS) which will significantly extend its network.
“The addition of daily nonstop service from New York and Miami to Milan Italy strengthens GAC USA leadership position as a leading GSA in the market. The addition of Air Italy to our Airline portfolio provides GAC the opportunity to offer the market an excellent Air Cargo logistics solution to Italy and key points within the Air Italy network,” said Francisco Hernandez, Country manager GAC USA.
Air Italy was previously represented in the US by World Cargo Solutions.
