airBaltic Cargo has appointed APG Cargo as its cargo general sales agent in Ireland.
The new contract expands the relationship between airBaltic and the APG Network, the biggest Passenger & Cargo GSA network in the world.
APG Cargo (Ireland) will be providing a full complement of cargo GSA services with enhanced cooperation with partner airlines and postal operators worldwide.
airBaltic operates 3 weekly Airbus A220 flights from Dublin to Riga and 2 weekly flights Dublin to Vilnius with onward connections to its entire European network.
The Irish cargo market will benefit from a global reach of 48 destinations on the airBaltic network, which include Helsinki, Moscow, Kiev, Abu Dhabi, Tbilisi, Tel Aviv and many more.
In 2019, airBaltic Cargo carried a record amount of cargo and mail – 14.8 thousand tons – which equated to an impressive 21% year on year increase.
The growth can be partly attributed to the extra capacity airBaltic now offers with the introduction of the Airbus A220-300 aircraft to the fleet, one of the world’s greenest commercial aircraft. airBaltic is the first airline in the world to operate an A220 only fleet.
