Globe Air Cargo, which is part of the French ECS Group has been appointed as General Sales and Service Agent for Aeromexico’s Netherlands air cargo operation.
Aeromexico expands their European operations
The carrier, which has its main base in Mexico City is no stranger to European airports.
It has a fleet of more than 120 aircraft, which serve 75 destinations worldwide.
The carrier’s main European hub is Madrid, where it operates ten weekly flights to and from Mexico City.
London is served with six weekly flights and Paris with one flight each day.
Amsterdam will now join this list of European destinations and the carrier aims to offer three weekly flights from AMS to MEX.
The Mexican carrier has established itself as a main player in the carriage of air cargo to and from the country. It is estimated that Aeromexico transports around twenty percent of all inbound and outbound cargo from the country.
In 2015, the airline carried well over 130,000 tons of cargo.
The belly holds of Aeromexico’s long haul fleet offer clients in Europe up to 700 tons of weekly cargo capacity on the airline’s total of twenty-five flights per week to the continent.
Focus on high paying cargo
By appointing Globe Air Cargo as its GSSA, Aeromexico aims to generate more cargo from the Netherlands, especially from the lucrative perishable, pharmaceutical and other niche markets.
The ECS Group’s cooperation with Aeromexico goes back as far as 1992 where both companies started working together in Spain.
Globe Air Cargo, with the addition of Amsterdam as GSSA, now is Aeromexico’s GSSA within the total EU territory.
Commenting on the addition of Amsterdam, ECS Group COO, Adrien Thominet stated: “we are delighted that Aeromexico has chosen Globe Air Cargo to intensify our long-standing partnership which has proved over the years to be very successful.”
