AS Biss has won a two-way pitch to promote the interests of British

cargo airlines Channel Express and Air Foyle, in the run-up to this

October’s negotiations between the US and UK governments over an ’open

skies’ policy.



The agency will lobby MPs and officials in Brussels and Westminster, in

an attempt to ensure that the cargo airlines gain as much access as

possible to the US air cargo market, which has so far remained largely

closed to them.



Channel Express and Air Foyle are keen to make sure their interests are

not sidelined by those of passenger airlines British Airways and

American Airlines, whose recent alliance is dependent on the success of

the forthcoming governmental talks.



Jeremy Sweeney, managing director at AS Biss, said: ’We are delighted to

have been appointed by Channel Express and Air Foyle who join our

rapidly growing portfolio of transport sector clients.’



Both Channel Express and Air Foyle transport cargo between the UK and

the rest of Europe and within continental European countries.



Channel Express is part of aviation and distribution services company

the Dart Group and employs more than 350 staff. Air Foyle is based in

Luton airport and is wholly owned by Christopher Foyle.
