Meridiana adds ECS for cargo

ROISSY, France: November 01 2015. The ECS Group has won a three-year GSSA contract to represent Italian long-haul leisure carrier Meridiana, based in Olbia and controlled by the Aga Khan Fund for Economic Development.

Meridian B767The airline operates B767 aircraft between New York, Naples and Palermo; plus the Maldives, Mauritius, Kenya, Zanzibar, Cabo Verde, Santo Domingo, Cuba and Brazil from Milan Malpensa or Rome Fiumicino.

ECS said the cargo management contract would focus on prime routes to and from Mexico, the U.S. and the Dominican Republic and expects to generate 4,000 tonnes of traffic per annum for the carrier.

Commenting on the deal, Meridiana CEO Richard Creagh said: "We chose ECS because of their very trustworthy reputation and their excellent service. I am sure our new partnership will help us grow in those important cargo markets." Creagh was appointed CEO of the airline in November 2014. Previous management positions have included strategic development at Aer Lingus and more recently EVP of Ukraine International Airlines.

ECS Group COO Adrien Thominet added: "We are proud to have gained Meridiana as a new client. As a total cargo management partner, we integrate our services seamlessly: scalable to global service, tailor-made to the individual needs of Meridiana and her customers. That way, Meridiana and ECS can grow together, with shared values and aligned goals."

Meridiana is the product of a merger with charter carrier Eurofly and the acquisition of Air Italy. The airline began B737 service to Munich from Milan Linate on November 30 – adding to an existing flight to Bucharest from the airport.
