Great Wall Airlines – the Shanghai- based B747 freighter operator – is launching services to the UK this month and has appointed EuroGSA as its general sales and service agent for the UK and Ireland.

Great Wall started UK operations with 3 ad hoc fl ights in late April and early May, followed by a full scheduled service four times per week on May 10th. All fl ights operate Manchester – Dubai – Shanghai (Pudong), using the airline’s B747-400 nose-loading freighters.

Inbound, the services to the UK will route via Amsterdam where cargo can also be loaded – providing the station with four further 747F fl ights in addition to its 6 weekly 747F departures to Shanghai via Seoul (Incheon).

EuroGSA already represents Great Wall through its offi ces in the Netherlands (where it is based) and Germany, with plans under way to open further branches in Stockholm and Malmo.

EuroGSA UK will provide Great Wall Airlines with a total management service including sales and marketing, reservations, administration, accounting and supervision of handling and trucking.
