SAS Cargo inaugurates a new route between Scandinavia and India. The route is operated by SAS International with Airbus A340/330 and three weekly round-trips.
In the winter traffic programme, the flight leaves Copenhagen for Delhi on Mondays, Wednesdays and Saturdays, and returns from Delhi on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Sundays. Each flight offers an approximate pay-load of 16 tonnes.
SAS Cargo's newly appointed general sales agent in Delhi is InterGlobe, which is the largest airline management company in India. InterGlobe has representations in 12 cities throughout the subcontinent, and years' experience at managing all sorts of cargo products and aircraft types.
The partnership with InterGlobe ensures SAS Cargo a highly competent and professional sales agent in India. I am sure that everyone involved will do their utmost to make the new route between Delhi and Copenhagen a success, says Per Vransøe, Director Asia & Pacific in SAS Cargo.
At present, India accounts for 3% of the 27 million tonnes global airfreight market, and volumes are steadily growing.
Exports from India include carpets, cold storage, tea & coffee, electronics/engineering goods, readymade garments, pharmaceuticals, perishables and printed matter with Europe as key market.
