Jet Airways of India has appointed IAM as its cargo GSSA for Ireland, with immediate effect.
The appointment of IAM – Ireland’s largest cargo GSSA – marks the first active marketing of Jet Airways’ cargo capacity in Ireland, since it began international services to London in 2005.
Jet Airways now operates a total of 27 flights per week from London Heathrow to Mumbai, Delhi and Amritsar, using A330s and A340s with approximately 14 tonnes’ capacity per flight. These flights link to the airline’s extensive domestic network, which uses B737 and ATP aircraft.
Says Jet Airways cargo manager – UK and Ireland, Finlay McArthur: “Traffic from the UK has been buoyant since we began operations, but the contribution of Ireland will be a valuable complement, particularly when we take delivery of larger B777 aircraft in April. We also plan to add further frequencies from the UK, and to open up new destinations in India.”
IAM will connect to Jet Airways’ London Heathrow departures using its sister company ITC’s nightly express road feeders from Dublin, Shannon and Cork.
