EFIS Air, part of ECS Group, says cargo volume generated for US Airways ex France since taking over the contract at the start of this year grew 21% in the first six months of 2013, while revenue was 18% up year-on-year.
The success of the GSA/airline relationship has been recognised by US Airways’ Philippe Torry, Regional Manager Europe & Middle East – Cargo Sales & Services. He said: “The figures speak for themselves and the first six months of the year has proven that EFIS Air is a valued and reliable partner. Besides a more than respectable increase in volume, we have also seen a considerable growth in revenue. Taking into consideration that the economic situation is still weak and that we operate in a market with fierce competition, we can honestly claim to be a very happy customer.”
In addition to its daily flights to Charlotte, US Airways is also generating high traffic levels in France for other cities in its network, such as Atlanta, Washington, Boston and Charleston.
Alain Boussard, Managing Director of EFIS Air, said: “We’ve had a great start to our contract with US Airways and we are confident we can further improve their market share. US Airways is recognised as a very reliable operator and that gives us a great advantage as their partner on the French territory.”
