Kenya Airways appoints new cargo GSAs in Europe

Kenya Airways has appointed the Paris-based ECS Group as the new cargo sales and service representatives for Netherlands, Germany, Austria, and the Nordics effective June 2020.

The ECS Group will be tasked with commercializing airfreight capacity and handle all local cargo operations in these areas. They will also identify and open up new markets, customer segments, and additional channels through which to keep expanding our business.

“This is in line with our cargo strategy to continue growing our footprint whilst retaining a competitive edge in the market. It is an exciting time for our cargo business even in the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic as we are playing a key role in supporting economies by keeping essential supplies moving across the world. Our partnership with the ECS Group will help solidify our position in the markets in Netherlands, Germany, Austria, and the Nordics and explore additional opportunities through which to serve our customers better in those regions” said Dick Murianki, director, KQ Cargo.

“We’re proud to be part of Kenya Airway’s growth strategy. Our global sales network is unquestionably our best asset to support the business development of our new partner’s cargo activities, not only in the European countries where we are represented but also beyond, constantly looking for new opportunities to offer them,” said Robert van de Weg, ECS Group CCO.
