Oman Air picks AVS for cargo services in Malaysia

Oman Air has selected AVS GSA to be its sales and service agent in Malaysia as the airline looks to expand in Southeast Asia.

The airline offers two flights per day Kuala Lumpur operated by A330 and B787 aircraft. The main routes to be marketed under this agreement are the Middle East for oil, gas and perishables and Europe for electronics, with an expected 7,000 tons of goods to be carried annually.

The deal comes after AVS was appointed to look after cargo sales (GSA) in Malaysia in January. From April the deal has been expanded to include services (GSSA)

Mohammed Al Musafir, senior vice president – commercial cargo, Oman Air, said: “The expansion in the volume of business from Malaysia since beginning of Jan 2019, when AVS GSA was appointed as thedfdf General Sales Agent for Oman Air Commercial Cargo, prompted us to award the Sales and Services agency to them. We are sure with their proven expertise and track record, Oman Air can look forward to a successful partnership.”

Thomas Ong, AVS GSA chief executive Far East, added: “We are extremely honoured by the trust that Oman Air has put in us by converting our GSA contract into a GSSA contract in the space of a few months. It perfectly reflects the hard work that our dedicated team has put in on behalf of the airline.”

In 2016 AVS was acquired by the ECS Group.
