Air One Aviation Extends 747 Freighter Focus as ROM Cargo Signs Exclusive Global Sales Agreement
ROM Cargo has appointed Air One Aviation as its exclusive Global Sales & Services partner.
This follows the awarding of the airline’s Air Operators’ Certificate by Romania’s civil aviation authority to begin international Boeing 747-400 freighter services.
Combined with its existing airline client base, the new contract means Air One Aviation is now marketing its biggest-ever fleet of Boeing 747-400SF freighters globally as well as a Boeing 737-400SF for regional cargo services. In the past 18 months, Air One Aviation has generated over 270 million kilos of airfreight for more than 2,400 full freighter flights to more than 50 countries, achieving its most successful year yet.
Air One Aviation expects ROM Cargo’s 747F fleet – which will be available for full charter services and capable of carrying a payload of up to 112 tonnes – to meet immediate demand for Asia-Europe cargo capacity.
Paul Bennett, Founder & CEO of Air One Aviation Limited, stated: “We are delighted to welcome another Boeing 747 freighter operator into our fleet portfolio. With the support we are generating from our freight forwarding, logistics and charter broker customers for 747 all-cargo capacity, we are confident of quickly establishing ROM Cargo in the international market and developing a platform for the next stage of the airline’s expansion.”
“Given its track record of generating growth for other 747 freighter operators, and its large, established customer base for full charter flights, we see Air One Aviation as a natural partner for our aircraft. It has a highly experienced commercial team, and we look forward to leveraging their knowledge and expertise in the freighter market,” added Nicu Berla, Deputy Accountable Manager of the airline, which trades as ROMMCARGO.
