GSSA ECS Group has secured a two-year contract extension with Royal Brunei Airlines to represent the cargo division of the airline at a mix of online and offline destinations across nine territories and 26 countries.

These territories are South East Asia, Australia, China, Middle East/Saudi Arabia, New Zealand, India, Canada and the US.

The GSA partnership with Royal Brunei Airlines first began in 2018 in 11 countries: Singapore, Malaysia, Thailand, Philippines, Vietnam, Hong Kong, United Kingdom, Indonesia, Taiwan, Japan, and Korea.

This new contract, which starts on February 1 and runs through to January 21 2024, now counts 26 countries, but excludes Indonesia, Taiwan, and Japan.

The pandemic largely disrupted the airline’s operations, which originally included daily flights to most of the countries in its network. Certain destinations currently remain suspended. However, ECS Group will continue to support Royal Brunei in diversifying to new destinations, and predicts a large increase in tonnage over the next two years.

“We are committed to giving our customer ECS Group’s best and are proud to have secured this contract extension,” said Noor Azizah, ECS Group regional VP Asia Pacific (exc. China).

Christina Chua, senior vice president passenger, cargo and charter sales at Royal Brunei Airlines, said: “Royal Brunei Airlines is delighted to continue its Cargo GSA relationship with ECS Group. The renewed relationship will further strengthen the partnership between Royal Brunei Airlines and ECS Group, with extended coverage of key territories such as Australia and UAE, as well as potential offline markets in USA, Canada, and India.”
