Kenyan cargo airline Astral Aviation has chosen FR8Manage–Airline and FR8Booking solutions to expand its digital footprint.

Nairobi-based Astral has teamed up with e-Cargoware, a UK-based SaaS company providing core and ancillary cloud-based freight management software services for airlines, GSAs, ground handlers, express operators and freight forwarders.

The announcement came on the first day of IATA’s World Cargo Symposium in London.

Sanjeev Gadhia, Astra Aviation founder and CEO, commented: “We are very pleased to work with e-Cargoware and the selection was based on the user friendly and intuitive FR8Manage – Airline to aid in our company’s continuing growth.

“The key focus for Astral Aviation is to sustain our rapid growth and increase our digital footprint. We are piloting the system as of September 2022 with FR8Manage–Airline and FR8Booking and what better way to announce it than during the IATA WCS, 2022.

“We are very pleased with the applications and the support and proactive interaction we get from the e-Cargoware team. Ramesh Darbha, Co-founder and CEO and his team have showed us that e-Cargoware was the right choice for us and the perfect innovative solution provider and ideal software partner.”

Darbha said: “We are delighted to have been given the endorsement and trust from one of the most successful full freighter operations on the market today.

“e-Cargoware is delighted to play a part in enabling Astral Aviation to realize its mission is to be the leading cargo airline in Africa by offering cost-effective, reliable, and efficient air freight solution.”
