Online platform gets airfreight back in sync

[ February 22, 2021   //   ]

The CharterSync online air cargo charter platform says it has seen significant growth since Brexit, handling 183 flights and 750 tons of cargo across Europe in January 2021, a 33% increase on December 2020.

In addition to its existing popularity with automotive customers, CharterSync has seen rising demand from the pharmaceutical sector, with time-critical bookings for Covid-19 vaccines, syringes and PPE. The company handled bookings across 21 different aircraft types in January, from executive jets up to regional freighter aircraft.

Air cargo operators have struggled to cope with the challenge of securing post-Brexit UK-EU flight permits, it adds.
