BRU becomes CSQ member and welcomes Sichuan Airlines
Following 179 freight forwarders and 18 cargo terminal operators around the world, Brussels airport (BRU) has become the latest hub and first European airport to sign up to the international air cargo association (Tiaca)'s cargo service quality (CSQ) tool.
The online rating tool covers every aspect of air cargo processing, including physical and document handling, technology, facilities, regulators and general airport infrastructure, amongst other variables.
Meanwhile, BRU's cargo network will be strengthened from the end of April, when the Chinese carrier Sichuan Airlines Cargo will add the Belgian capital as its first full-cargo destination in Europe. Starting with three A330F flights a week, the Chengdu-based carrier plans to increase its weekly flight frequency to six by 2020. (ah)
