Brazilian carrier Azul has appointed ECS Group subsidiary Globe Air Cargo (GAC) Argentina as its general sales and services agent (GSSA) in Argentina as part of a two-year contract.
GAC Argentina said it plans to expand the freight activities of the airline in Argentina, including opening up destinations that are currently only served for passengers.
GAC Argentina will market the Azul’s cargo capacity on flights departing from Buenos Aires, and also in the future from Cordoba and Rosario.
From Buenos Aires, GAC Argentina now markets several Brazilian destinations, including a twice-weekly service to Belo Horizonte, and daily Campinas flight, as well as destinations in the US – Fort Lauderdale and Orlando and in Europe to Lisbon and a soon to start connection to Porto.
GAC Argentina managing director, Alejandro Doldi said: “We have full confidence in this airline and in the opportunities for rapid development in the Argentinian market. Increased trade between Argentina and Brazil will also contribute to Azul’s growth in this market.”
Azul operates a fleet of Airbus A320 and EM190 and EM195 passenger aircraft on flights from Argentina. From Brazil it runs A330, B737, ATR and will soon start flying B767 aircraft on routes.
