Air Italy hangs its hat in the US with Globe Air Cargo

Published: Wednesday, September 19, 2018

Previously represented in the US by World Cargo Solutions, Air Italy changed course on 1st September choosing Globe Air Cargo USA to represent it for all of its US cargo operations. Globe Air Cargo USA intends to open up new logistical solutions for the American market with direct daily flights for Milan (MXP) from Miami and New York thanks to the 10 ton cargo capacity of the Air Italy fleet (A330).

The Meridiana airline was first created on 29 March 1963 in Olbia (Italy) and became Air Italy in February 2018 after the major strategic overhaul brought about when Qatar Airways bought out 49% of its parent company, AQA Holding. Thanks to this new dynamic Air Italy has expanded, and continues to expand, its network; opening up new routes to India, Thailand and the United States out of Milan Malpensa (MXP). Globe Air Cargo USA, a subsidiary of the ECS Group, will be able to commercialize routes such as Bangkok (BKK), New Delhi (DEL), Mumbai (BOM) and Lagos (LOS) which will significantly extend its network. “We are excited about this new partnership in USA. The addition of daily nonstop service from New York and Miami to Milan Italy strengthens GAC USA leadership position as a leading GSA in the market. The addition of Air Italy to our Airline portfolio provides GAC the opportunity to offer the market an excellent Air Cargo logistics solution to Italy and key points within the Air Italy network.” said Francisco HERNANDEZ, Country Manager GAC USA.
