Air France/KLM has relocated its cargo operations: both import and export services are now handled by the Skyway Aviation Handling Company’s warehouse.
The move, which became effective this September, will ensure that all import shipments on Air France/KLM Airline flights to Lagos are to be warehoused in the SAHCOL ultra-modern warehouse before clearance, while all export cargo on flights from Lagos will originate from the SAHCOL warehouse.
This new relocation on the part of the carrier is seen as a further testament of the impact the SAHCOL brand is having on the Nigerian aviation ground handling market.
Since December 2009, when the Federal Government of Nigeria relinquished ownership of the ground handling company to the Taiwo Afolabi-led SIFAX Group, a total of 15 domestic and foreign airlines have been signed up by SAHCOL.
With recent investments in state-of-the-art aviation ground handling equipment, the construction of new cargo import and export warehouses, the award of IATA and European RA3 certification, investment in manpower training and customer service, SAHCOL’s future is looking assured.
