Aviation Horizon has signed a global cargo general sales agency contract with Air One Aviation to support its launch venture into the all-cargo market for regional 737 freighter services.
The Saudi-based private jet operator has taken delivery of its first Boeing 737-400SF conversion and two more are due to join its fleet in the next three months.
Each aircraft will offer 18,500 kilos of cargo capacity, utilising 11 ULD positions.
Air One expects the 737-400s to be in high demand for regular regional contracts, especially in the Middle and Far East.
This is the second all-cargo GSA contract awarded to Air One Aviation in the past 10 months.
In 2020, it was also awarded exclusive sales and marketing rights across all territories by Aerotranscargo (ATC) Moldova.
Paul Bennett, CEO of Air One Aviation, said: “Having been a client of Aviation Horizon’s private jet services, we are proud to have been awarded this opportunity to successfully launch the Aviation Horizon brand in the cargo market with its first newly-converted 737-400SF.
“This is a perfect aircraft for regional ecommerce and parcels operations and comes to the market at a time when demand for capacity in this sector has never been greater.
“The arrivals of Aviation Horizon’s second and third 737-400 freighters will ensure we have the back-up aircraft required to support high frequency ecommerce flights.
“It will also give us additional capacity to satisfy ad hoc charter demand for this very popular aircraft.”
