JAMAICA, NEW YORK, October 15, 2007
Cargo Airport Services USA, LLC (CAS) has been awarded the cargo warehouse handling contract with Cargolux and EVA at Seattle’s Sea-Tac International Airport. This is the first expansion opportunity for CAS in the West, who currently operates in IAH and SAT.
Cargolux, based in Luxembourg, is Europe’s largest all-cargo airline, operating a modern fleet of 14 B747-400 freighters on a worldwide network, covering 90 destinations, 60 of which are served on scheduled all-cargo flights. Ian Morgan, Vice President The Americas for Cargolux, commented that “CAS has proven themselves as an efficient partner for Cargolux, and the expansion of the relationship in SEA is further proof of our confidence in them as a long-term service provider.”
Michael Duffy, President of CAS, said, “We are excited about our operations in the West and are pleased to be associated with Cargolux, who is a highly respected cargo operator and our current customer in Houston Intercontinental Airport.” Our current relationship with CV and the support from the Cargolux management team was instrumental in extending our partnership to Sea-Tac.
CAS is also proud to add another EVA handling location for the Taiwan-based Carrier. CAS currently handles EVA at JFK and EWR, providing cargo warehouse handling and cargo ramp handling for passenger and freighter operations.
Earlier this year CAS acquired Genesis Aircraft Support based in Houston, Texas and the Cargo Zone Group of Companies based in Montreal, Canada, with operations in Toronto and Montreal. With the addition of Seattle, CAS will have operations at 14 locations throughout the United States and Canada, with a leading cargo handling position in most of the markets it serves.
Cargo Airport Services USA is based at JFK International Airport and provides ramp, international cargo handling and facilities management services to over 50 carriers and freight forwarders in 14 locations. CAS expansion plans include other international gateways throughout North America.
