Message from 0ur Group CEO
It is an interesting time in the air cargo industry given the rise of e-commerce and the customer experience by which consumers demand speed in distant and cross border delivery.
At the same time, industrial experts are forecasting a consistent and increasing need for air cargo traffic over the next decade. In line with these global transformations and developments, market relevance and the continuity of our legacy is a compulsory matter, rather than an option for me.
I’m pleased to share that our group is continuing its business expansion with the order of more aircraft to satisfy growing market demand. This is exciting news indeed, as it means we are able to better serve our customers and trusted partners to deliver their products safely and economically, and in speed and style.
