ECS Group’s Globe Air Cargo Japan has become the GSSA partner of Korean airline Air Premia.

Globe Air Cargo Japan is ECS Group’s first foothold in the country, and Air Premia’s newest ECS Group GSSA partner.

ECS Group said that on December 23, an Air Premia flight will depart Japan for Korea with an export cargo load of automotive parts, semi-conductor parts, and general consumer goods.

The Korean airline plans to run a scheduled service linking Narita with Incheon, and from there on to Singapore, Saigon, and Los Angeles, respectively.

It is already represented by ECS Group subsidiaries in Korea and the US.

In Japan, newly founded Globe Air Cargo Japan will provide GSSA support, ensuring optimum revenues and load factors on every Air Premia flight.

Founded on August 1, Globe Air Cargo Japan was established to build and strengthen business relations in East Asia, as well as provide existing ECS Group airline customers with a known local Japanese presence.

Globe Air Cargo Japan is located off-airport, in downtown Tokyo, in Shinbashi, Minato-ku, 70 km away from Japan’s main cargo airport, Narita (NRT).

Minato district was selected as the GSSA location, since many large global and local Japanese forwarders are based there.

“With our established team of highly experienced in sales professionals and existing forwarder relationships across the country, Globe Air Cargo Japan offers local air cargo expertise within a truly global ECS Group network, and one that goes above and beyond any standard GSSA portfolio,” said Dmitry Vorontsov, managing director Globe Air Cargo Japan.

“We look forward to contributing to Air Premia’s success in Japan, and carving out a strong market presence for ECS Group, too.”

“ECS Group has placed a key focus on expanding its presence in Asia these past 12 months, and growing to support its international customers.

“Together with Air Premia, ECS Group is fulfilling its pledge to offer the strongest Asian network with unlimited connections,” said Adrien Thominet, executive chairman of ECS Group.

“I am delighted that we can now provide GSSA services in one of the world’s most significant economies, and know that with Globe Air Cargo Japan, our Japanese and international customers will be more than well-attended to.”
