Air Logistics scoops seven country GSA deal from Finnair

17 / 02 / 2017

Finnair Cargo has appointed Air Logistics Group as its General Sales and Service Agent (GSSA) in seven countries across Europe.

The exclusive GSSA agreement will take effect from April 1 and Air Logistics will provide full cargo sales, marketing, customer service, administration and operational support across Belgium, Denmark, Germany, Ireland, the Netherlands, Sweden and the UK.

The new GSSA agreement is a timely development as Finnair continues to expand its capacity and frequencies across Europe and Asia.

“In Air Logistics we are confident that we have chosen a partner capable of providing the selling expertise and service levels that are synonymous with Finnair Cargo,” said Fredrik Wildtgrube, head of global sales, Finnair Cargo.

“With highly experienced staff and offices at key cargo locations across Europe, Air Logistics is well positioned to provide effective coverage and the high service levels that our customers expect.”

“Air Logistics Group is proud to have been chosen by Finnair Cargo as its exclusive GSSA in some of the largest markets in Europe,” added Stephen Dawkins, chief operating officer, Air Logistics Group,

“Finnair is at the forefront of the European aviation industry with its new COOL Nordic Cargo Hub terminal opening at Helsinki Airport this year, the expanding modern A350 fleet and an extensive network of over 100 destinations across Europe, Asia and North America.

“We are confident that we can continue to build their cargo business across the network.”

The deal is not the only GSSA partnership Finnair has created over recent months. In January the Helsinki hubbed airline announced it had appointed ECS as its GSSA in Southeast Asia.
