Icelandair brings the Globe to Italy
28 / 09 / 2011
ECS Group subsidiary Globe Air Cargo has won the cargo general sales agency contract for Icelandair in Italy.
The contract will see ECS generating cargo for the airline’s 757 freighter flights from Liège (Belgium). Globe will truck cargo from Italy to connect with the flights. During the summer, it will also market Icelandair’s seasonal 757 passenger operation from Malpensa (Italy).
In Italy, Globe will market capacity to Reykjavik (Iceland) and Greenland and also expects strong support for the airline’s onward connections from Iceland to North America, notably Chicago, New York, Seattle and Washington (all US), and Halifax, Montreal and Toronto (Canada).
“We expect to generate foodstuffs and fashion cargoes to Iceland and see a huge opportunity for general cargo to the USA and Canada by marketing this alternative way to both markets via Reykjavik,” Carlo Gonzato, Globe Air Cargo’s country manager in Italy, said.
