Coyne Airways has appointed Air Logistics as its general sales agent in the US to increase its share of air cargo shipments to the Caspian region and the Middle East. Air Logistics is now responsible for all US sales for Coyne Airways with the exception of Virginia, West Virginia, Washington DC, Pennsylvania, Maryland and Delaware – where Coyne will continue its sales and marketing activities with Ray Wach, who has represented Coyne in this region since April 2005. Larry Coyne, CEO of Coyne Airways, said that with Air Logistics having locations in Atlanta, Chicago, Houston, Miami and New York, it will provide wider geographical coverage and local contacts to meet the growing demand for the destinations Coyne serves. Air Logistics represents several of Coyne’s interline partners and is therefore able to provide quicker access to first carrier selection for the majority of Coyne clients that move freight on a through 575 AWB to final destination from their local US gateway, the cargo carrier said. Coyne Airways began all-cargo flights to the Caspian region twelve years ago, and currently operates a weekly Boeing 747 freighter from London Stansted and Cologne to its Caspian hub of Tbilisi. From Tbilisi, Coyne operates regional all-cargo flights to Aktau, Atyrau and Uralsk in Kazakhstan as well as a RFS to Baku in Azerbaijan and Yerevan in Armenia. From its Middle East hub in Dubai, Coyne operates freighters to major cities across Iraq and Afghanistan, including Baghdad, Balad, Sulaymaniyah, Erbil, Kandahar, Kabul and Bagram. Coyne Airways has provided services from the US market for fifteen years, and its major interline partners now include Air France, Virgin Atlantic, Qatar Airways, Qantas, Emirates, Delta and British Airways to the Gulf and Air France, Continental Airlines, Virgin and Asiana Airlines to the Caspian.
