Posted 8 April 2019 · Add Comment

NAS will offer comprehensive ground handling and cargo services in Mozambique beginning July 2019.

This covers ramp, passenger and engineering services and include check-in, boarding, ramp handling, maintenance, cleaning as well as import and export cargo handling and storage, for scheduled as well as adhoc 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. We look forward to utilizing our global experience and expertise to modernize operations and drive efficiency using the latest technologies and operational practices.”

NAS is committed to investing $50 million 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 airport in the country.

This in turn will not only benefit trade and tourism but will also create job opportunities for youth in the country.

El Houry, added, “At NAS we truly believe that employees are core to our business. As a strong glocal company, we continue to maintain this in all the countries we operate in by investing in our human capital. We believe in recruiting local employees and training them not only to ensure service quality and secure operations, but also for future career development. In the coming years, we will be hiring around 1,000 Mozambicans to join our global operations.”

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.
