Airfrance-KLM Airline has shifted its Cargo operations; import and export services to the Skyway Aviation Handling Company Limited’s (SAHCOL) warehouse.
The move which became effective on the 1st of September 2016, will ensure that all import shipments on Airfrance-KLM Airline flights to Lagos are to be warehoused in the SAHCOL ultra modern warehouse before clearance, while all export cargo on the Airfrance-KLM flights from Lagos are now to originate from the SAHCOL warehouse.
According to Basil Agboarumi, SAHCOL’s spokesman, this new relocation by Airfrance-KLM Cargo to SAHCOL is a further testament of the extra-ordinary impact the SAHCOL brand is having on the Nigerian Aviation ground handling market.
From 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 fifteen domestic and foreign airlines have joined the services of SAHCOL.
With recent investments in state-of-the-art aviation ground handling equipment, construction of an ultra-modern cargo import and export warehouses, IATA and European RA3 certifications, manpower trainings and excellent customer services, SAHCOL has grown in confidence with existing and prospective clients.
“With this new endorsement by Airfrance-KLM-Martinair of the SAHCOL brand, SAHCOL is further poised to ensure efficiency and speedy delivery of Aviation Ground Handling Services to all its clients hence making it a reference point where efficiency of a successful flight is born”, he said.
The Skyway Aviation Handling Company Limited is an IATA Safety Audit for Ground Operations (ISAGO) certified Aviation Ground Handling Company, providing services in Passenger Handling, Ramp Handling, Cargo Handling/Warehousing, Training Services, Aviation Security, Baggage reconciliation, Hospitality, and other related Ground Handling Services, in all the commercially operated airports across Nigeria.
