Egyptian National carrier EgyptAir Cargo has chosen FlyUs as it cargo GSSA across Benelux. Effective June 2016 the Dutch-headquartered company will be responsible for freight on the North African carrier’s daily services ex-Amsterdam and four-times weekly service from Brussels. In addition the six weekly freighters ex-Ostend and Cologne will be served by road feeder service ex Luxembourg, Brussels, Maastricht, Eindhoven, Rotterdam and Amsterdam.
“We expect Cairo to be the main destination for Cargo,” states FlyUs managing director, Carlo de Haas. “In addition there are also excellent onwards opportunities for freight to more than 40 cities right across the Egypt Air network.
FlyUs will be focusing on developing a range of EgyptAir products including Pharma, Fresh, Express and AVI and an additional key factor will be ensuring the carrier maintains a strong flown as booked performance for its cargo, it said.
Set up in 2002 EgyptAir Cargo is the wholly-owned subsidiary of the country’s national carrier and currently operates a total of three wide-bodied A300 freighters – with four A330 freighters currently on order – in addition to the belly capacity of its passenger fleet.
FlyUs BV was founded in 2004 and currently operates in 15 countries across Europe, Africa and Central America offering tailored cargo GSA representation to a host of carriers.
