ECS GROUP, the major Paris-based general sales agent, has purchased a controlling interest in Niger Air Cargo, an airline launched recently by a private investor, reports Roswell, Georgia's Air Cargo World.

Niger Air Cargo will start with weekly service between Liege and Niamey with either a DC-10 or MD-11, with each flight offering 85 tonnes of capacity, expected to carry mostly perishables such as food and healthcare products as well as communications equipment and apparel, says ECS.

"We are offering an innovative cargo solution into Niger to support its growing market. We will also offer unique logistics solutions in the region with our cargo aircraft which will be important with regard to intra-African business opportunities, especially with Nigeria and Mali, as well as the domestic market," said ECS chief executive Bretrand Schmoll.

"The registration of Niger Air Cargo will allow ECS to seal special pro-rate agreements with other carriers interested in this reliable link into Africa and intra-Africa," he said.
