ECS Group and Thai VietJet Air to grow Thailand and Asia cargo operations

Low-cost carrier, Thai VietJet Air, has awarded the tender of its cargo operations to ECS Group, signing a Master GSSA agreement with ECS Group, on 01 February 2024.

Thai VietJet Air looks to further increasing its cargo revenue and export volumes across Thailand and various Asian countries, including Singapore, Malaysia, Indonesia, China, Taiwan, Korea, Japan, and Vietnam.

This strategic partnership allows Thai VietJet Air to leverage ECS Group’s in-house digital tools and expert knowledge to promote its cargo business effectively.

Thai VietJet Air currently operates a fleet of 18 A320-200 and A321-200 aircraft, focusing primarily on transporting general cargo and perishables.

Monchai Jirakiertivadhana, AVS GSA CEO Indochina region, said: “Thai VietJet Air has carved a solid cargo market share for itself on the Thai domestic market, and offers an impressive international network across Asia – and all that without a freighter in its fleet.”

“AVS GSA therefore has an excellent base on which to further develop the airline’s cargo activities and improve its revenue performance.

Adrien Thominet, Executive Chairman of ECS Group, Says: “We are very proud to have signed a Master GSA agreement with a company that demonstrates the same innovation and business acumen as ECS Group does.

“ECS Group will provide the best sales support as well access to all our abilities. We warmly welcome our new partner”.
