Royal Brunei Airlines picks ECS Group as cargo GSSA for Europe, North and South Asia
May 29, 2018: Leading General Sales & Service Agent (GSSA) ECS Group has inked 3 years contract with Royal Brunei Airlines in order to support the air carrier in its strategy for cargo growth in North and South Asia as well as in the whole of Europe.
Royal Brunei Airlines serves the destinations Dubai, Jeddah, Bangkok, Singapore, Ho Chi Minh City, Seoul, Kuala Lumpur, Kota Kinabalu, Hong Kong, Shanghai, Manila, Denpasar, Surabaya, and Jakarta from its hub at Brunei International Airport (BWN).
The carrier will start services to London (LHR) with daily non-stop flights between Brunei and London effective October 28, 2018. ECS will help to expand Royal Brunei’s network in providing additional road services from London (LHR) to all parts of Europe.
On its North and South Asia routes, Royal Brunei operates a fleet of A320 aircraft with a cargo capacity of 2 tonnes. Routes to Melbourne, London (LHR), Jeddah, and Dubai are being served by Boeing 787 air freighters designed to carry up to 15 tonnes of commodities.
This collaboration will help Royal Brunei to control 19 stations in different parts of the world and benefit from a network filling space where required and thus providing the highest yield to the airline.
The Nation of Brunei, one of the most important producers of oil and natural gas worldwide, strongly relies on the import of commodities such as spare parts and perishables. Furthermore, e-commerce and products like clothes and electronics are the backbone of Asian economies. Royal Brunei takes on a crucial role in shipping these goods to destinations throughout Asia, Australia, the Middle East and Europe.
“Royal Brunei is a vibrant and growing airline with a great diversity of customer-oriented and reliable services,” says Adrien Thominet, CEO, ECS Group, Singapore. “Its values and network perfectly match ECS’s setup in Asia, allowing synergies that no other GSSA can offer.”
