ECS Group, the trusted partner of many top players in the international air cargo business, has teamed up with Royal Brunei Airlines to pool synergies in cargo sales for Europe as well as North and South Asia.

ECS Group, with headquarters in Paris, has signed a 3-years contract with Royal Brunei Airlines in order to support the air carrier as a General Sales & Service Agent in its strategy for growth in North and South Asia as well as in the whole of Europe. With its extraordinary cross industry experience, global network of subsidiaries and its comprehensive array of efficient and customer-oriented business solutions, the ECS Group has been identified by the Royal Brunei management board as the ideal partner to effectively tap new markets. 

Royal Brunei Airlines serves the destinations London (LHR) with daily non-stop flights between Brunei and London effective 28th of October 2018, Dubai, Jeddah, Bangkok, Singapore, Ho Chi Minh City, Seoul, Kuala Lumpur, Kota Kinabalu, Hong Kong, Shanghai, Manila, Denpasar, Surabaya, and Jakarta from its hub at Brunei International Airport (BWN). ECS partners will help to expand Royal Brunei’s network in providing additional road services from London (LHR) to all parts of Europe.

On its North and South Asia routes, Royal Brunei operates a fleet of A320 aircraft with a cargo capacity of 2 tons. Routes to Melbourne, London (LHR), Jeddah, and Dubai are being served by Boeing 787 air freighters designed to carry up to 15 tons of commodities.

The collaboration with ECS enables Royal Brunei to control 19 stations in different parts of the world and benefit from a network filling space where required and thus providing the highest yield to the airline.

The Nation of Brunei, one of the most important producers of oil and natural gas worldwide, strongly relies on the import of commodities such as spare parts and perishables.
