Chapman Freeborn and RUS Aviation announce Asia cargo agreement
10 / 03 / 2016
Chapman Freeborn Airchartering and Sharjah-based RUS Aviation have announced an exclusive cargo sales agreement to provide airfreight solutions from Hong Kong to the Middle East and surrounding markets.
Effective this month, Chapman Freeborn will sell per-kilo shipments from Hong Kong to the UAE, with onward connections via RUS Aviation’s regional network under the same air waybill.
Said Chapman Freeborn: “Utilising its fleet of A300 and IL-76 freighter aircraft, UAE-based RUS Aviation operates regular services to destinations not well served by other scheduled carriers – including Afghanistan, Djibouti, Iraq, and Libya.”
The new service from Chapman Freeborn and RUS Aviation is being driven by increased demand to new markets from Hong Kong.
Lewis King, director of business development at Chapman Freeborn Asia, said: “Chapman Freeborn has a wide base of charter clients in Asia, and working with RUS Aviation means we are now able to offer them dependable per-kilo solutions to several key new markets.”
Syed Wazeer, commercial manager at RUS Aviation, said: “The increased reach and visibility in this region will enable more forwarders and shippers to utilise our specialist services.”
