ECS Group to establish and develop DHL Aviation’s Brazilian business

ECS Group’s Brazilian subsidiary, BCS AIR, is in close cooperation with DHL Aviation in setting up the airline’s first Brazilian connection and will serve as its exclusive GSSA when flights commence on July 10, 2022.

São Paulo-based BCS AIR has signed a year-long GSSA contract with DHL Aviation, which will come into effect with the start of a 6-weekly freighter schedule on July 10, 2022. Viracopos/Brazil is an entirely new online destination for DHL Aviation. The airline will operate a Boeing 767-300F from Viracopos via Bogota, Columbia to Miami, every day except Sundays.

“It is both a pleasure and an honour to welcome DHL Aviation to our client portfolio, especially on such a highly demanded route. Despite regular services already being provided by UPS, Avianca, and LATAM, this is much-needed capacity that DHL Aviation is bringing into the Brazilian market, and it therefore opens up great development potentials for a wide range of businesses: particularly to Colombia, Central America, the Caribbean, and Florida,” Joao Luiz Ferreira, BCS AIR’s managing director Brazil, predicts. “BCS AIR is in the process of putting together a dedicated 4-person team for DHL Aviation, as we envisage a strong future for this connection. Our focus will be on a good load mix of automotive, pharma, high-tech, footwear, and express, alongside ad hoc, and general cargo shipments.”

Paco Ortega, ECS Group’s regional VP Central & South America, adds: “We are extremely happy and proud to have gained this new GSSA contract in the region so soon after also signing with DHL Aviation in Chile. It not only confirms DHL Aviation’s faith in our competence, but also establishes DHL Aviation as one of our main customers in South America. This is definitely a new milestone achievement in our ECS Group strategy of establishing strong GSA leadership in South America and the Caribbean and providing our unique Augmented GSA solutions to all airline customers. We look forward to promoting and growing DHL Aviation’s presence in Brazil and beyond.”

BCS AIR is the leading GSSA in Brazil, with over 25 years of experience in the market and offers a broad range of GSSA, GHA, and Total Cargo Management (TCM) services.
