Aviation: Air France relocates cargo operation to SAHCOL


The Airfrance-KLM Airline has relocated its Cargo operations; import and export services to the Skyway Aviation Handling Company Limited’s (SAHCOL) warehouse.

The move, which became effective on the 1st of September 2016, will ensure that all import shipments on Airfrance-KLM Airline flights to Lagos are to be warehoused in the SAHCOL ultra modern warehouse before clearance, while all export cargo on the Airfrance-KLM flights from Lagos are now to originate from the SAHCOL warehouse.

This new relocation, according to the management, is a further testament of SAHCOL’s impact on the Nigerian aviation ground handling market.

From December 2009 when the Federal Government of Nigeria relinquished ownership of the Ground Handling Company to the Taiwo Afolabi led SIFAX Group, a total of fifteen domestic and foreign airlines have joined the services of SAHCOL.

General Manager, Corporate Communications, Basil Agboarumi, said with recent investments in state-of-the-art aviation ground handling equipment, construction of an ultra-modern cargo import and export warehouses, IATA and European RA3 certifications, manpower trainings and excellent customer services, SAHCOL had grown in confidence with existing and prospective clients.

Agboarumi said: “With this new endorsement by Airfrance-KLM-Martinair of the SAHCOL brand, SAHCOL is further poised to ensure efficiency and speedy delivery of Aviation Ground Handling Services to all its clients hence making it a reference point where efficiency of a successful flight is born.”

The Skyway Aviation Handling Company Limited, is an IATA Safety Audit for Ground Operations (ISAGO) certified, providing services in passenger handling, ramp handling and cargo handling/warehousing. Others are training services, aviation security, baggage reconciliation, hospitality, and other related ground handling services, in all the commercially operated airports across Nigeria.
