By Rachelle Harry

AirBaltic Cargo has chosen APG Cargo to be its GSSA in Ireland.

As part of the deal, APG Cargo Ireland will provide cargo handling services, as well as “enhanced cooperation with partner airlines and postal operators worldwide” for the carrier.

AirBaltic said that through the partnership, the Irish cargo market can benefit from connections with its 48 network destinations, including Helsinki, Moscow, Kiev, Abu Dhabi, Tbilisi, Tel Aviv.

AirBaltic operates Airbus A220 flights from Dublin to Riga three times a week and flights from Dublin to Vilnius twice a week, with onward connections to other destinations in its network.

Bob Matharoo, cargo director, APG Cargo Ireland, commented: “We are delighted to represent such a dynamic airline and are proud of the trust AirBaltic has placed in us. APG Cargo will complement AirBaltic’s online operations and provide global reach to the Irish cargo community.”

Richard Burgess, president of the APG Network, added: “This appointment underlines the interest in our fresh and dynamic approach to expanding cargo sales for our partner airlines, not only through our cargo GSSA services but also through our unique cargo interline solution.”

In 2019, AirBaltic Cargo transported 21% more cargo than the previous year – a “record amount”, it said. The carrier attributed its growth in volumes to the introduction of Airbus A220-300s to is fleet.
