Hainan Airlines selects ECS Group in Zurich
An erstwhile partner when it used to fly ex Switzerland then with an offline GSA contract, China-based Hainan Airlines has now reinforced its business relations with Globe Air Cargo Switzerland (GAC CH) by selecting it as cargo sales and services agent.
Flying from Zurich (ZRH) to Shenzhen (SZX), an exclusive destination that has never been served on schedule before from Switzerland, will certainly help to grow the hub activities via SZX. Hong-Kong (HKG), Guangzhou (CAN) and Shanghai PVG are the other destinations that GAC CH will now market.
Hainan Airlines’ cargo activities that focus in particular on instruments, pharmaceuticals and industrial components, are operated by B787 aircraft, with a 12 – 16 t capacity. GAC CH, founded in 1995, could therefore generate 900 t of cargo per annum for Hainan Airlines. (ah)
