The European Regions Airline Association (ERA) welcomed its seventh airline this year, bringing the number of airlines in ERA membership to 52.
Swiss airline Zimex joins The European Regions Airline Association (ERA). Founded in 1969, Zimex is Switzerland’s oldest airline. With a fleet of more than 20 turboprop aircraft, the carrier provides ACMI services to specialist remote field operations in Africa, the Middle East and Asia, has an MRO facility and runs an aviation training company. Zimex also recently diversified into the European express cargo market to continue to build a balanced and dynamic business portfolio.
“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. 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,” says Hugo Kopp, Zimex CEO.
Director General of ERA, Simon McNamara, adds: “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.”
