Royal Brunei sees 20% rise in cargo volumes


Royal Brunei Airlines (RB) reported a 20 per cent growth in its cargo business over the past 12 months following an outsourcing agreement with Air Logistics, according to a report from Centre for Aviation (CAPA). The report quoted RB chief commercial and planning officer Karam Chad as saying that the deal with Air Logistics provided global coverage and delivers guaranteed monthly revenue to the carrier as part of the contract.

Air Logistics is a joint venture between the Brunei International Air Cargo Centre (BIACC) and UK-based Air Logistics Network Limited which the duo struck in August 2013. Earlier, Air Logistics director of International Cargo Management Francois Pariseau said the company hoped to extend the opportunities between the existing RB network and Air Logistics’ partners in Asia, Europe and the US to promote the sultanate as a key air cargo transshipment point for the region.
