November 5 - At this week's TIACA Forum 2010 in Amsterdam, Maximus Air Cargon announced the launch of a new suite of ACMI and charter services.

The airline, which has flourished since its inception in 2005, is moving to a new stage of growth and the introduction of these enhanced services heralds the start of this strategy. In addition, plans are already afoot to add more medium to heavy freighters to its fully owned fleet of eight all-cargo aircraft.

With an already strong existing client base of leading airlines that include Etihad Crystal CargoMaximus is now rolling out the next generation of ACMI solutions. 'ACMI Select' will offer a suite of premium services which offer a range of services which can be tailored to specific needs. These services are ideal for start-up airlines without AOCs, brokers needing a one-stop-shop, and of course established airlines needing solutions beyond today's ACMI standard.

Similarly, Maximus Air Cargo's charter solutions will also undergo expansion. This will result in 'Charter Select', a new suite of innovative premium services. 'Charter Select' will provide customers with the benefit and simplicity of a single point of contact giving ultimate peace of mind. In addition, Maximus Cargo offers a rapid response service which can provide the expertise, team and processes in place to launch a charter flight in as little as six hours subject to aircraft availability.

Commenting on the launch of the expanded services, Fathi Buhazza, president and CEO of Maximus Air Cargo and founder of Care by Air said: "Maximus Air Cargo is the largest all cargo airline in a country that is fast-becoming a strategic hub for aviation and logistics. The airline is now ready to lead the way and move to the next stage of growth, and this ultimately means expansion in terms of fleet and services. One of our strengths has always been our high level of customer service and we will leverage on this together with our enhanced services and fleet to differentiate the airline setting benchmarks in the MENA region and beyond."
