Jetstar Asia looks to 25% cargo uplift in 2018

Jetstar Asia looks to 25% cargo uplift in 2018

In 2018, Jetstar Asia expects to carry more than 15 thousand tonnes of cargo, a 25 per cent increase year-on-year. Serviced by ECS Group under Total Cargo Management (TCM), the airline is fast becoming a key player in the South Asian cargo arena. Thanks to its partnership with ECS, Jetstar Asia works with all the big multinational forwarders as well as express, courier and mail service providers.

With its fleet of A320, Jetstar Asia covers 30 destinations in South East and North Asia as well as Darwin in Australia from its hub in Singapore. Its market coverage, reliability, on-time performance and multiple frequencies to the main capitals are assets to its clients, claims the airline.

“With ECS’s proven track record of managing TCM on one hand and our strong partnership with Jetstar Asia on the other, Jetstar Asia has become a key regional player in the South East and North Asian airfreight market over the last two years.” says François Pariseau, ECS managing director in Singapore.

Increasing its uplift by more than 25 per cent in 2018 has required dedication from all the stakeholders, he considers.

Adrien Thominet, CEO of ECS Group, welcomes this achievement: “We couldn’t be more satisfied with the tonnage increase and the place Jetstar Asia has taken in the Asian cargo market. Working with such a dynamic airline is really exciting. This is a great partnership and we are very delighted to represent Jetstar Asia and to contribute to their growth.”
