ECS-group-charterCharter and brokerage activities are a key asset within ECS’s organisation and a key aspect of global trade.

Chartering offers a critical service to:

  • forwarders, for urgent or outstanding shipments, heavy or bulky cargo, materials for just-in-time manufacturing, hazardous cargo, etc.
  • airlines, when their needs exceed their flying capacity or when they require substitute aircraft to ensure that they fulfill their commitments in case of a temporary aircraft shortage,
  • provide the missing link for route creation in order to optimise sales capacity and meet the demands of forwarders.


ECS’s charter activity is carried out worldwide by:

  • Efis Air, a specialist subsidiary.

Its expertise encompasses flight plans (Jeppesen Airway Manual) and traffic rights & overflight management. Efis Air operates all types of aircraft.
