Dubai based GSA Global Investments has announced its latest acquisition, Africa West, will look to expand its regional and international network within the year.
GSA Global Investments which holds a 51 per cent stake in the air cargo company, has stated that it is considering adding new carrying capacity and destinations to its operations by 2012.
“We will reinforce our aircraft cargo capacity originating from Lome to facilitate faster deliveries within our network. For the present year, we will start to cover the long-haul import sectors originating from Chicago, Brussels, and Shanghai. We are also considering additional destinations within East Africa which we plan to launch by next year,” said GSA Global Investments chairman, Issa Baluch.
Baluch states the firm is planning to initially implement a more modern feeder fleet followed by eventual expansion to other countries.
“Our current plans include the operation of a modernised, fuel-efficient and reliable feeder fleet that will operate on a set schedule, with links to the airport cities in Africa. We will then work on extending the reach of this feeder fleet to other countries,” said Baluch.
