PARIS/TOKYO—On 23 December 2022, Air Premia left Japan for Korea with typical Japanese export cargo load of automotive parts, semi-conductor parts, and general consumer goods. The Korean airline plans to run a scheduled service linking Narita (NRT) with Incheon (ICN), and from there, to Singapore (SIN),Saigon (SGN), and Los Angeles (LAX), respectively.

ECS Group subsidiaries in Korea and the US represent Air Premia. In Japan, newly founded Globe Air Cargo Japan will provide comprehensive GSSA support, ensuring optimum revenues and load factors on every Air Premia flight.

Globe Air Cargo Japan has been established to build and strengthen business relations in East Asia, as well as provide existing ECS Group airline customers with a known local Japanese presence. Founded on 01 August 2022, the team headed by Managing Director, Dmitry Vorontsov, boasts a long and varied air cargo background with quality airlines.

“With our established team of highly experienced in sales professionals and existing forwarder relationships across the country, Globe Air Cargo Japan offers local air cargo expertise within a truly global ECS Group network, and one that goes above and beyond any standard GSSA portfolio,” saidVorontsov. “We look forward to contributing to Air Premia’s success in Japan, and carving out a strong market presence for ECS Group, too.”

Adrien Thominet, Executive Chairman of ECS Group, commented: “ECS Group has placed a key focus on expanding its presence in Asia these past 12 months, and growing to support its international customers. Together with Air Premia, ECS Group is fulfilling its pledge to offer the strongest Asian network with unlimited connections. I am delighted that we can now provide GSSA services in one of the world’s most significant economies, and know that with Globe Air Cargo Japan, our Japanese and international customers will be more than well-attended to.”

Globe Air Cargo Japan is located off-airport, in downtown Tokyo, in Shinbashi, Minato-ku, 70 km away from Japan’s main cargo airport, Narita (NRT). Minatodistrict was selected as the GSSA location, since many large global and local Japanese forwarders are based there.
