ECS and Qatar Airways Cargo extend partnership
Qatar Airways Cargo has appointed Wexco, which joined ECS Group a year ago, as its general sales agent (GSA) in Australia, where the Middle Eastern airline is operating 30 weekly passenger and freighters flights to Adelaide, Brisbane, Melbourne, Perth and Sydney.
Through the new agreement, Qatar Airways and ECS Group are extending their strategic partnership which today covers 20 countries worldwide.
Cédric Millet, managing director Wexco Australia: "We are seeing an injection of services in the lead up to the peak season, particularly for the exports of produce."
A lot of flights are being operated under the government funded international freight assistance mechanism (IFAM) programme, of which Qatar Airways Cargo was one of the founder airlines, in order to boost Australia’s perishables export trade. (ah)
