Chapman Freeborn and AIA Cargo announce Ireland tie up

By Rachelle Harry

Chapman Freeborn Air chartering has collaborated with Airbridge International Agencies (AIA) Cargo to strengthen both companies’ presence in Ireland.

UK-headquartered Chapman Freeborn is now the exclusive partner for all of AIA Cargo’s aircraft charter requirements to and from the Republic of Ireland and Northern Ireland.

Chapman Freeborn is currently securing cargo capacity on freighters from small turboprops up to widebody freighters – including a dedicated fleet of B747-400F aircraft.

Pierre van der Stichele, group cargo operations director at Chapman Freeborn, said: “The cargo industry in Ireland is a close-knit community, and AIA’s local expertise and relationships make this the perfect fit.

“Our two companies have distinct areas of expertise, but also a shared focus on innovative cargo solutions and excellent customer service.”

Mark Andrew, chief executive officer at AIA Cargo, commented: “We see great potential working with Chapman Freeborn and are excited to be introducing their services to customers across Ireland. They have been at the forefront of the charter industry for over 45 years, and we look forward to seeing the relationship go from strength to strength.”
