Virgin Atlantic Cargo expands online booking offering
Virgin Atlantic Cargo has continued to expand its online booking capabilities by placing its capacity on WebCargo.
WebCargo said that its users would now be able to book capacity on the carrier’s flights to 30 destinations in the US, India, China, Nigeria, South Africa, and the Caribbean.
Virgin Atlantic Cargo managing director Phil Wardlaw said that the airline was striving to make air cargo easier for its customers by “offering more ways to book and access our capacity”.
“As customer requirements and digital experiences evolve it’s important for us to work with a platform that has an optimized digital booking process and provides access to the largest number of forwarders with seamless access to our global network,” he said.
The UK-based carrier first placed its capacity on a third-party booking portal last year when it partnered with cargo.one.
For WebCargo, Virgin Atlantic is the second carrier addition in the space of two weeks.
At the end of January, JAL Cargo announced it had added its capacity to the WebCargo platform.
Freightos, WebCargo’s parent company, also revealed its fourth-quarter highlights in January.
The company said that it had recorded 16 consecutive months of record transactions on its booking platform; that the number of transactions completed in the fourth quarter had increased 36% year on year and that the number of carriers selling on the platform had reached 45 from 35 last year.
