Coyne Airways has become the first carrier to offer dangerous goods bookings through WebCargo after adding its capacity to the portal.

The carrier offers services to Africa, the Gulf, and the Caspian regions and has carried around 300,000 tons of air cargo since it was established in 1994 by Larry Coyne.

Third-party booking portals tend to attract straight forward shipments, such as general cargo, so the addition of a carrier offering dangerous goods is a step forward for WebCargo.

“Larry Coyne is not just known for establishing Coyne Airways but also for his pioneering efforts to reliably transport cargo to hard-to-reach destinations,” said Julien Triay, sales director for WebCargo.

“With Coyne becoming the first carrier to provide dangerous goods booking on WebCargo’s platform, they continue to lead in innovation, expanding access and streamlining logistics for forwarders globally.”

Liana Coyne, director at Coyne Airways, added: “This collaboration reflects our commitment to innovation and enhancing the customer experience. By offering real-time rates and booking capabilities, including for dangerous goods, we are providing our customers with the tools they need to optimise their logistics operations.”

According to its website, Coyne links major airports in North America, Europe, Middle East and Asia/Pacific into a number of regional destinations which previously had limited services, via a small number of African hub airports – Lagos, Dakar, Nairobi and Johannesburg.

From these hubs, the carrier serves over 30 destinations in the north, south, east and west of the continent.

The carrier’s Caspian network now includes services to Aktau, Atyrau and Uralsk in Western Kazakhstan, along with connections further east, as well as weekly flights to Ashgabat, Baku and Yerevan, all via our central hub in Tbilisi.

For the Middle East, Coyne has interline agreements linking North America, Europe, Asia, Africa and Oceania with its Dubai hub. It also offers export services from Afghanistan and Iraq to destinations worldwide, which caters for both small shipments and large full aircraft moves.

“In addition we offer a sea-air service for shipments moving into and out of Afghanistan whereby freight can be moved to Dubai by sea and then flown into Afghanistan, thus avoiding the often difficult land route,” the company said.
