The new high road from JFK International Airport in New York to CAS is no longer the best kept secret, as Royal Air Maroc spreads big, beautiful B-787 Dreamliner wings (one in service, two more to be added to the fleet in 2016) adding major capacity for shippers between the U.S. and Africa.
Globe Air Cargo and ECS Group threw a grand party near JFK Airport to celebrate the appointment of Globe Air Cargo as GSA for Royal Air Maroc in the U.S., and all their friends were there.

“Across the Atlantic to Africa will never be the same,” assures Adrien Thominet, COO of ECS Group, which now serves at 13 stations as RAM GSSA.
“We have reinterpreted our air cargo services, adding capability for all types of cargo via Gateway CAS, including enhanced ground handling support and road-feeder infrastructure. We’re offering European and African shippers quick connections via CAS right into JFK,” said RAM VP Cargo Amine El Farissi.
“We chose ECS to build our GSSA sales network because they are big enough to grow with us, but also have the power and market knowledge to bring our program to market via a diverse cross section of business contacts.
“Up and down the line ECS lends its global GSSA world class sales support to the revitalized RAM Cargo effort,” notes Shaun Hawkett, commercial director USA, Canada & Dominican Republic for Globe Air Cargo (ECS).
“Currently RAM operates to 34 stations throughout Africa, so our B787s connecting via our enhanced road feeder throughout Europe or via our B737 freighter are the foundation for our push to eventually see CAS emerge as a major gateway for Africa,” Amine El Farissi said.
“We are proud to be part of the growing success story that is Royal Air Maroc Cargo,” Shaun Hawkett said.
