Oman Air Commercial Cargo division is now in its tenth year. With AVS Malaysia’s experience in the designated markets, Oman Air will be able to develop its activities and services, not just in Malaysia but also make further inroads to the South East Asian markets.

The new partnership will assist Oman Air to further strengthen its position with two daily flights departing from Kuala Lumpur (KUL), operated by A330 & B787 aircraft. The main routes to be marketed under this agreement are the Middle East for oil, gas and perishables and Europe for electronics with an expected 7,000 tons of goods to be carried annually.

Mohammed Al Musafir, Senior Vice President – Commercial Cargo, Oman Air, said: “We are delighted to appoint AVS GSA (ECS Group) in Malaysia as our GSSA partner for marketing Oman Air’s cargo sales and services to our customers. The expansion in the volume of business from Malaysia since beginning of Jan 2019, when AVS GSA was appointed as the General Sales Agent for Oman Air Commercial Cargo, prompted us to award the Sales and Services agency to them. We are sure with their proven expertise and track record, Oman Air can look forward to a successful partnership.”

“We are extremely honoured by the trust that Oman Air has put in us by converting our CSA contract into a GSSA contract in the space of a few months. It perfectly reflects the hard work that our dedicated team has put in on behalf of the airline,” said Thomas Ong, AVS GSA CEO Far East.

In addition, Oman Air’s decision to appoint AVS GSA in Malaysia further strengthens the bonds between the two partners, as ECS Group has been representing the Oman Air’s cargo business in Indonesia and Singapore for many years. As a result, AVS GSA – which recently became a subsidiary of ECS Group – is developing its position in the GSSA sector in Malaysia.
