The ECS Group’s new charter business has completed its first flight in partnership with carrier Amelia International.

The group added its Just Fly It charter service as part of its Augment GSA concept where it offers its various products on an individual basis without the need to become a full GSA customer.

This first charter operation took place when the ECS Group matched an urgent customer request with Amelia International, which took delivery of its first ATR-72 freighter in January of this year.

The flight, on behalf of a customer in the automotive industry, took place on February 10, carrying a full payload of around 7.5 tonnes of automotive components.

Matija Krajnc, managing director at Amelia International declared: “We successfully operated our first charter flight from Gyor, Hungary, to Bremen Germany. We are delighted that our ATR-72 Freighter has finally embarked on its first mission to provide much-needed air cargo capacity within Europe. With ECS Group’s support, we look forward to many more, similar flights, soon.”

Robert Van De Weg, chief commercial officer of ECS Group, commented: “We are pleased to have supported Amelia International with the first flight of their new ATR-72 freighter. Our Total Cargo Expertise (TCE) team is on hand to provide Amelia International with operational support and we are also assisting them with our commercial competence as they get going in the fast-moving world of air cargo. We wish Amelia International success and look forward to continued partnership as they grow in future.”
