Network Airline Management (NAM) will extend its freighter operation at Liege Airport for another three years.
The company, which also offers GSSA services, said that its cargo volumes from the Belgian airport had “strongly increased” since it began flights back in 2014.
This is down to the introduction of “various new freighter routes”. Today the company offers minimum of 12 weekly flights into Africa, as well as global charter operations.
Malcolm Higginson, operations director of Network Airline Management, said: “We have been able to grow our business over the last five years with the support of Liege Airport with their dedicated cargo infrastructure, we fully expect to continue developing and growing the business even further.
“Liege is ideally located as NAM’s European hub and offers the advantage of ease of access with a large road feeder service, as well as good widebody freighter connectivity into Asia and North America. This allows NAM to focus on the African continent utilising more than 30 years expertise, and still being able to cater for the ever increasing global opportunities.”
Steven Verhasselt, vice president commercial, Liege Airport added: “NAM brings a very specific expertise that fits perfectly with the #FreightersFirst strategy of Liege Airport. Africa is very important for Liege and the local cargo community.
“We see a lot of opportunities to continue growing the business with perishables inbound, as well as oil and mining equipment and general cargo outbound. We believe that Liege will grow into the eCommerce hub linking the Global Market to Africa, and Network Airline Management will be a crucial part of that fast developing, exciting, prospect for the Airfreight industry not only in Liege, but worldwide.”
