Royal Jordanian Airlines joins TIACA
Royal Jordanian Airlines has joined The International Air Cargo Association.
'We seek to strengthen the association as a corporate member and look forward to strongly supporting TIACA as it works to tackle major issues of development where the airline industry has not enough voice,' said Ingo Roessler, Royal Jordanian’s vice president of cargo.
The airline serves more than 29 airports throughout the Arab world and a further 25 points in Europe, the United States and Asia. As well as carrying cargo on its passenger services, it operates two Airbus A310 freighters on a regular schedule to Baghdad, Dubai, Cairo, Tel Aviv, London Heathrow, London Gatwick, Brussels, Athens, Larnaca, Damascus, Khartoum and New York JFK. Royal Jordanian is also operating worldwide charters and provides ACMI missions for airline partners.
Jack Boisen, chairman of TIACA and vice president cargo at Continental Airlines, said: 'Our goal is to create a fairer, freer, faster and less regulated environment for an industry that is vital to world trade and a driver of global economic development. TIACA's membership is at an all-time high and we welcome more members that want to join us in working to improve the air cargo industry for its service providers and customers.'
