Coyne Airways has made history by becoming the first airline to offer dangerous goods bookings through the WebCargo platform.

This significant development follows the addition of Coyne Airways’ capacity to the portal.

Traditionally, third-party booking portals are used for straightforward shipments like general cargo.

The inclusion of an airline offering dangerous goods marks a notable advancement for WebCargo.

Julien Triay, sales director for WebCargo, praised Larry Coyne’s contributions, stating, “Larry Coyne is not just known for establishing Coyne Airways but also for his pioneering efforts to reliably transport cargo to hard-to-reach destinations.

“With Coyne becoming the first carrier to provide dangerous goods booking on WebCargo’s platform, they continue to lead in innovation, expanding access and streamlining logistics for forwarders globally.”

Liana Coyne, director at Coyne Airways, expressed enthusiasm about the collaboration. “This partnership reflects our commitment to innovation and enhancing the customer experience.

“By offering real-time rates and booking capabilities, including for dangerous goods, we are providing our customers with the tools they need to optimise their logistics operations.”

According to the Coyne Airways website, the airline connects major airports in North America, Europe, the Middle East, and the Asia/Pacific regions to various regional destinations with previously limited services, via a few key African hub airports – Lagos, Dakar, Nairobi, and Johannesburg. From these hubs, Coyne Airways serves over 30 destinations across the continent.

In the Caspian region, Coyne Airways operates services to Aktau, Atyrau, and Uralsk in Western Kazakhstan, with connections further east, as well as weekly flights to Ashgabat, Baku, and Yerevan via its central hub in Tbilisi.

For the Middle East, the airline has interline agreements linking North America, Europe, Asia, Africa, and Oceania through its Dubai hub. It also offers export services from Afghanistan and Iraq to global destinations, catering to both small shipments and large full aircraft movements.

Additionally, Coyne Airways provides a sea-air service for shipments moving into and out of Afghanistan. This service involves transporting freight to Dubai by sea before flying it into Afghanistan, thereby avoiding often difficult land routes.
