► KENYA: Cargo outfit Coyne Airways expands to 30 destinations throughout Africa.

Coyne AirwaysLondon-based cargo outfit Coyne Airways (7C) has launched what it terms "customer-focused services" to over 30 destinations across Africa, routed through three of the Continent’s main hubs - Lagos, Nairobi and Johannesburg.

The airline has extensively trialled routes through Lagos, Nigeria, Nairobi, Kenya, and Johannesburg, South Africa, to create a comprehensive African service from virtually anywhere in the world.
 “This is a new style of service for Africa, designed to give forwarders the kind of peace of mind they require when moving freight to challenging destinations,” said Michael Clements, Coyne's Dubai-based Commercial Director, who has 15 years’ experience of working in Africa.
The African market presents exciting opportunities for both import and export, according to Clements.
"There is a lot coming out of Africa, and not just pineapples and roses. Beauty products, textiles, and handicrafts are increasingly being exported, and there is oil and gas equipment which needs to be returned."

Coyne’s African service will make use of over 30 interline partners and the airline’s own 575 through air waybill, which helps to reduce delays when moving freight on more than a single carrier. Currently, Coyne has hubs in Djibouti, Nairobi, Lagos, Johannesburg and Dakar.

The service will move consignments from the largest oil and gas equipment, to the smallest, most delicate, shipments.

Coyne Airways is an all-cargo airline based in London, UK, with a separate operation in Dubai, UAE, from where it serves all Gulf destinations with connections from North America, Europe, Asia, the Caucuses, Central Asia, the oil and gas rich Sakhalin Island and, more recently Iraq, Afghanistan, and Africa, via a large network of interline partners.
