Aero Cargo wins Qantas contract

AERO Cargo International, part of European Cargo Services, has won the GSA contract in France to market Qantas Airways’ cargo destinations across Australasia.

This will involve marketing cargo capacity on Qantas’ daily Boeing 747-400 passenger flights from Frankfurt, Germany and its twice-weekly b747 freighter operations ex Liege and Frankfurt, which operate via Singapore.

Aero Cargo will be marketing all destinations in the Qantas network to freight forwarders across France. These cover all of Australia, New Zealand and the South Pacific islands of Fiji, New Caledonia, Papua New Guinea and Vanuata.

Adrien Thominet, director of Aero Cargo, said: “We are proud that Qantas has chosen to re-establish its business relationship with us. Today, with fast road transport connections to Germany and Belgium, we can now offer cargo customers in France quick access to Qantas Airways’ fantastic network.

“Qantas serves many markets that we see as being more robust and less affected by the general downturn in the market. The airline recognises France as an important market and sees Aero Cargo as the ideal partner to improve sales and grow its market share. We are confident that the sales action plan we have proposed will achieve this.”
