National Aviation Services (NAS) has announced to provide comprehensive ground handling and cargo services in Mozambique from July 2019
The aim is to boost Mozambique’s aviation sector. This covers ramp, passenger and engineering services and includes check-in, boarding, ramp handling, maintenance, cleaning as well as import and export cargo handling and storage, for scheduled as well as ad hoc airlines at all airports in Mozambique.
Hassan El Houry, group CEO of NAS said, “Airline traffic is growing steadily in Mozambique. Coupled with the developing oil and gas, and mining sectors, there is a huge demand for air transport related goods and services for both cargo and passenger operations. This requires heavy investment in the latest equipment, technologies and processes at the different airports in Mozambique, all of which NAS can provide easily.”
NAS is committed to investing US$50mn in Africa over the next three years. Mozambique is the first African country to benefit from this investment. With new infrastructure and fresh resources, equipment, technology and training, NAS will ensure the highest levels of quality and security for international airlines operating at the various airports in the country.
The ground handling and cargo management services extend NAS’s existing investments in Mozambique. This includes operating the FNB Lounge in departures at the Maputo International Airport since 2017 and a new FNB Pearl Lounge at the Maputo Domestic Terminal. New lounges are also under development at other airports in the country.
