ACP Wins Kingfisher in UK and Ireland
07 / 09 / 2008
ACP Worldwide has been appointed GSSA for Bangalore headquartered, Kingfisher Airlines cargo services, in both the UK and Ireland.
ACP is now responsible for selling the carrier’s cargo services, not only between London and Dublin and the southern Indian city, but also to onwards destinations across India.
Services commenced from London in the first week of September, using an Airbus A330-200 aircraft offering up to 12 tonnes cargo capacity per flight.
“The Indian air cargo market is extremely buoyant and sustainable double digit growth is predicted for the foreseeable future,” said Kingfisher’s UK and Ireland cargo manager, Stephen James (left). “We are therefore delighted to have been able to select a partner as well respected and well resourced as ACP in these two key locations and look forward to a long and productive working relationship.”
ACP Worldwide’s director, Rod Entwistle (right), said: “We are pleased that Kingfisher believes we can provide all the aspects of cargo management they are looking for in a service partner. We have already planned an exciting range of tariffs and service support information and are looking forward to the expansion of their service portfolio later this winter, following a successful launch last week,” he said.
