Oman Air appoints GAC as it looks to expand in Europe

Oman Air Cargo has selected ECS Group subsidiary Globe Air Cargo (GAC) as its sales partner in the Benelux region of Europe.
The contract came into effect on April 1 and will provide the carrier with overnight transit cargo volume to its gateways in Paris (CDG), London (LON) and Frankfurt (FRA).
According to the contract, ECS will market Oman Air’s cargo network from its hub in Muscat (MCT) with flights to destinations in the Middle East, India and Asia.
The sales agent will represent Oman Air Cargo as an offline sales partner, and co-ordinate the trucking and handling of cargo on behalf of Oman Air from Brussels (BRU) and Amsterdam (AMS).
"This will allow Oman Air Cargo to consolidate cargo volume and eventually create a strong customer base in the Benelux market," ECS said in a statement.
Among the type of cargo that will be generated will predominantly include general cargo of industrial goods.
However, under the new contract GAC will help Oman Air to develop special and premium type of cargo that includes perishable and pharma, key cargo commodities that transit through Paris, London and Frankfurt.
Mohammed Al Musafir, Senior Vice President – Commercial Cargo, Oman Air, said: "Oman Air Cargo is committed to an aggressive expansion plan, and the Benelux region is of interest to us as we look at expanding our network to better serve our clients worldwide.”
