Cargoitalia appoints sales and handling agents

Cargoitalia, the new Italian-owned all-cargo airline, has appointed the GSSAs and handling agents in its four launch markets of Hong Kong, the UAE, Canada, and the USA.

Cargoitalia’s first scheduled flights to Hong Kong starts on 9th September. Sales in Italy will be handled by the airline’s own sales team, while terminal and ramp handling at its Malpensa home base will be provided by ALHA and SEA respectively. In Hong Kong, Cargoitalia will be represented by New Asia Capital Resources, while handling will be performed by HACTL.

From 19th September, the airline will introduce its second route, operating twice weekly Milan- New York – Toronto – Milan – Abu Dhabi – Milan. In the USA, Cargoitalia has appointed Heavyweight Air Express as its GSSA. All handling will be performed by WFS.

In Canada, Network Cargo Systems International will market Cargoitalia’s capacity. Ramp handling at Toronto will be performed by Handlex, while terminal handling will again be provided by WFS.

In the UAE, the airline’s capacity will be marketed by the Dubai arm of Heavyweight Air Express, assisted by its strategic venture partner Kargo Sistem of Istanbul. ADAC will provide all handling services.

Cargoitalia is the result of amalgamating the original Cargoitalia (which suspended operations in 2008) with the recently-purchased Alitalia full cargo business.
