Air Italy opts for Globe Air Cargo USA

Air Italy has appointed Globe Air Cargo USA (GAC USA), part of the ECS Group, as its general sales (GSA) for its US cargo operations.
A spokesperson for GAC USA said that it intends to open up "new logistical solutions for the American market" with direct daily flights to Milan Malpensa airport (MXP) from Miami and New York, using the 10 tonne bellyhold capacity of Air Italy’s Airbus A330 passenger aircraft.
Air Italy, the former Meridiana airline in which Qatar Airways took a 49% stake in October 2017, was previously represented in the US by World Cargo Solutions.
GAC USA added that it will be able to "commercialise routes such as Bangkok, New Delhi, Mumbai and Lagos, which will significantly extend its network".
Francisco Hernandez, country manager GAC USA, said: “We are excited about this new partnership in the US. The addition of daily nonstop service from New York and Miami to Milan Italy strengthens GAC USA’s 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.”
