Bluebird Nordic Signs GSSA Contract with NordicGSA
With the start of this year, ECS Group company, NordicGSA in Denmark, has become the GSSA for the Icelandic cargo airline, Bluebird Nordic, an Avia Solutions Group company.
Bluebird Nordic operates a fleet of 9 B737F and recently signed leases for three Boeing 777-300ER which are undergoing passenger-to-freighter conversions and expected to be operational in 2024. The GSSA contract signed with NordicGSA, is unlimited. NordicGSA’s responsibilities cover Bluebird Nordic’s Monday to Friday daily flight operations from Billund (BLL), Denmark, to Keflavík (KEF), Iceland, and back, with import distribution operations to Northern Germany. The main commodities being moved are fresh fish, fruit and vegetables, clothing, electricals, and other general freight.
“We have a good, long-standing professional relationship with Bluebird Nordic here in Denmark, having worked together on projects in the past, so I am delighted that Magnus Magnusson and I were now able to conclude a formal GSSA agreement,” Thomas Frederiksen, Managing Director – Denmark at NordicGSA, who signed the GSSA contract on behalf of all the ECS Group countries involved, states.
“We have high hopes for this new route from BLL and CGN, as it allows us to service our biggest export markets, Germany, Belgium, and France, with fresh fish,” Magnus Magnusson, Business Development Director at Bluebird Nordic, reveals. “There is a great deal of interest from the freight forwarders in Iceland in this new lane, as it opens up new opportunities for imports from the Nordic countries that have until now only been served by passenger aircraft.”
