Shipping News Feature

HUNGARY – NETHERLANDS – Schiphol based airline cargo General Sales and Service Agent (GSSA) FlyUs, has opened a new branch office in the Hungarian capital, Budapest to cater for increasing demand for its services from exporters in that country. FlyUs is the freight GSSA for Air Asia, Air Transat, Copa Airlines, Global Aviation, Europe Airpost and Jet2. Managing Director, Carlo de Haas, commented:

"Hungary is really shaping up to be one of the future export hotspots of Eastern Europe and our strategy is to have presence in key locations where international trade is a growing and sustainable component of business. Hungary is really looking outwards at a number of markets and we as a company have been offered various opportunities with airlines to start there, which is exactly what we decided to do.

"The other reason for our involvement in Hungary is that it is a strong producer of commodities which are either urgent or very urgent and therefore need to be transported by air such as pharmaceuticals, automotive and high tech products. Many of these goods are for destinations of high demand, where capacity is often tight or restricted which means having the right partner is essential in order to achieve delivery".

The new FlyUs office is located right in the heart of the cargo area at Budapest's Liszt Ferenc International airport and the key office positions are filled by two experienced cargo professionals. General Manager, Zsolt Szabó has worked in airfreight for 22 years including spells with leading freight forwarders as well as Customs, customer service, sales and most recently in general manager and managing director roles. While Customer Service Manager, Mónika Perényi has worked in customer service for more than 11 years and has five years experience as a cargo sales and reservations assistant with Austrian Airlines Cargo.
