Air Italy has appointed Globe Air Cargo USA (GAC USA) as its general sales agent (GSA) for US freight operations with the contract going into effect on 1 September.
GAC USA is part of the ECS Group and said it plans on opening up “new logistical solutions” for the American marketplace with direct daily flights to Milan Malpensa Airport from Miami and New York, and so utilising the 10 tonne belly capacity of the carrier’s Airbus A330 aircraft.
Formerly called Meridiana, Air Italy is 49 per cent owned by Qatar Airways which took the stake in October 2017. The carrier’s previous GSA in the US was World Cargo Solutions.
GAC USA also said it will be able to commercialise routes such as Bangkok, New Delhi, Mumbai and Lagos, which it added will significantly extend its network.
