ECS Group subsidiary AVS GSA has been appointed as the general sales and service agent (GSSA) for Oman Air in Malaysia.
The two companies said the move will assist Oman Air to further strengthen its position with two daily flights departing from Kuala Lumpur which it operates utilising Airbus A330s and Boeing 787s.
The main routes to be marketed under the agreement are the Middle East for oil, gas and perishables, and Europe for electronics with an expected 7,000 tonnes of goods set to be carried annually.
Oman Air senior vice president of commercial cargo, Mohammed Al Musafir said: “The expansion in the volume of business from Malaysia since beginning of Jan 2019, when AVS GSA was appointed as the general sales agent for Oman Air Commercial Cargo, prompted us to award the sales and services agency to them.
“We are sure with their proven expertise and track record, Oman Air can look forward to a successful partnership.”
AVS GSA chief executive officer for the Far East, Thomas Ong added the company was “extremely honoured” by the trust Oman Air has put in it by converting a current GSA contract into a GSSA contract in the space of a few months.
