Singapore Airlines opens Sharjah cargo office
Singapore Airlines Cargo has announced plans to consolidate its Middle Eastern operations with a dedicated office at Sharjah Airport Freight Centre, which was opened last month in partnership with its general sales agents SNTTA Cargo.
The company, which operates a total of 84 cargo flights from Sharjah International Airport a month, will focus on charter operations, import and export handling, and general reservations from the new office, with staff from SNTTA Cargo also being trained to deliver excellence in customer service.
“Singapore International Airlines has reinforced its plans to develop a strong regional cargo hub by shifting our United Arab Emirates freighter services to Sharjah,” commented Lee Kong Yang, regional vice president of Singapore Airlines Cargo in West Asia and Africa.
“As one of the leading cargo carriers in the world, we look at Sharjah as a key transit point, especially for our long-haul routes between Asia and Europe. It will also help to grow our Africa routes, as the continent has proven to be more resilient than traditional airfreight markets in the face of a global recession,” he added.
