NordicGSA – part of the ECS Group – has won a contract to provide agency services to freighter operator Bluebird Nordic’s new service to Iceland.
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 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,” said Magnus Magnusson, business development director at Bluebird Nordic.
“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.”
Bluebird Nordic, an Avia Solutions Group, operates a fleet of nine B737F and recently signed leases for three Boeing 777-300ER which are undergoing passenger-to-freighter conversions and expected to be operational in 2024.
