Air cargo management group Aero Africa has successfully handled the first SalamAir direct freighter from Nairobi, Kenya to Muscat, Oman since it was appointed as the airline’s cargo GSSA for Kenya. 

The flight took place on April 16 using an Airbus A321-200 passenger to freighter (P2F) conversion aircraft.

“This direct freighter service has been welcomed with excitement by the flower and meat exporters to Oman, thus boosting business between the two countries,” said Aero Africa.

“This successful launch is indeed a testament that Aero Africa Group is dedicated to offering African GSSA solutions and neutral value-added services to the global logistics and aviation community,” said Jade da Costa, chief commercial officer.

Aero Africa was last month appointed cargo General Sales & Services Agent (GSSA) for Salam Air in Kenya.

Oman-based low-cost carrier SalamAir launched a dedicated air cargo service and inducted its first freighter aircraft – the A321P2F – in October last year.
