New all-cargo entrant Aviation Horizons awards GSA deal to Air One

Private jet operator Aviation Horizon is continuing to ramp up its recently launched all-cargo operations through the signing of a GSA deal with Air One Aviation.

The Saudi-based operator has already taken delivery of its first 18.5kg capacity Boeing 737-400SF conversion and two more are due to join its fleet in the next three months.

Air One said it expects the aircraft to be in demand for regional contracts, especially in the Middle and Far East carrying e-commerce and parcel traffic.

Paul Bennett, chief executive of Air One said: “Having been a client of Aviation Horizon’s private jet services, we are proud to have been awarded this opportunity to successfully launch the Aviation Horizon brand in the cargo market with its first newly-converted 737-400SF.

“This is a perfect aircraft for regional e-commerce and parcels operations and comes to the market at a time when demand for capacity in this sector has never been greater.

“The arrivals of Aviation Horizon’s second and third 737-400 freighters will ensure we have the back-up aircraft required to support high frequency e-commerce flights. It will also give us additional capacity to satisfy ad hoc charter demand for this very popular aircraft.”

This is the second all-cargo GSA contract awarded to Air One Aviation in the past 10 months; last year it was also awarded exclusive sales and marketing rights across all territories by Aerotranscargo (ATC) Moldova, which operates six B747-400 freighters.

Air One said it would will also explore hub and spoke opportunities to connect Aviation Horizon’s regional all-cargo operations with Aerotranscargo’s feeder services from Hong Kong and China to Europe.

Air One Aviation was formerly known as aircraft charter specialist Chartersphere.
