  • Les vols vers l’Afrique seront d’importantes routes de fret pour SN Brussels Airlines

En ce qui concerne l’Europe-Afrique, SN Brussels Airlines fait appel au General Sales and Services Agent (GSSA) ‘European Cargo Services’ (ECS). La communauté de fret aérien de Brucargo réagit positivement, mais attend. Pour ce qui est du transport de passagers aussi, les astres semblent être favorables pour les vols vers l’Afrique.
