Zimex has become the seventh airline to join the European Regions Airline Association (ERA) in 2016.
“Joining ERA will be of real benefit to Zimex in terms of business expansion opportunities and representation before Europe’s senior regulatory and policy decision makers,” noted Hugo Kopp, Zimex’s CEO. “The opportunity to meet with ERA members at working groups and its annual conferences will also be of great value with regards to networking opportunities.”
Simon McNamara, director general, ERA, added, “Zimex is a great example of an entrepreneurial and resourceful European regional airline that has adapted its services according to market demands. It caters for the expanding ACMI market and, in addition, has diversified into the European express cargo market. ERA is looking forward to working with Zimex as the airline continues with its development plans.”
Zimex operates a fleet of more than 20 turboprop aircraft, providing ACMI services to specialist remote field operations in Africa, the Middle East and Asia. The announcement brings the total number of airlines with ERA membership to 52.
