AIA Cargo to open new office in Dublin, Eire
AIA Cargo is pleased to announce that effective 1st September 2015 a new office will be opening in Dublin Airport, Eire.
Located in International House at the heart of the Dublin cargo community AIA will be offering a vast sales portfolio of carriers offering worldwide connections to Asia, Australasia, Europe, Middle East, and North/South America.
For several years AIA Cargo used third party suppliers to cover the sales areas of Dublin, Shannon and Cork but due to continued growth in AIA the decision was made to open our own office to streamline sales and further boost our presence in the Eire market.
AIA would like to thank our partners for their help and assistance over these years and we look forward to working more directly with the Eire freight forwarding community.
A large part of the decision to open our branch was based on more “online” flights being offered by AIA airline partners. In addition to the seasonal Thomson flights to the Spanish holiday resorts, AIA now represent Lux air who offer daily rotations to Luxembourg and same day connections onto major European capital cities for example Copenhagen, Frankfurt, Milan, Stockholm and Vienna. Air Transat also offer summer wide body A310 flights to Toronto and Montreal which also enables AIA clients to connect overnight to major US cities like New York, Chicago and Detroit.
However the biggest reason behind the move is the decision of Thomson Airways to operate its new charter programme from Dublin using a Boeing 787 Dreamliner. The new service to Montego Bay will begin on June 12, 2016, while the new Cancun link begins on June 13, 2016. Both these services offer 5 pallet positions and 12-15 tons of belly cargo capacity. From Cancun we can offer our onward connections to Mexico City, Monterrey and Guadalajara.
