Municipal Company Siauliu Oro Uostas Seeks Recognition in the Region

B747 W

In 2011, Municipal Company Siauliu Oro Uostas together with SIA FCG Ltd. (Latvia) and JSC "Rikusta" took a new project related to transportation of the common goods, live animals, heavy, perishable cargos through Siauliai Airport, which was called “New Baltic Air Cargo Gate”. All three companies are specialists in their fields; Municipal Company Siauliu Oro Uostas provides aircraft ground handling services and administers the operation of the airport; SIA FCG Ltd. provides agency services to air carriers, JSC RIKUSTA performs customs clearance services, freight forwarding, customs warehouses and transshipment facilities’ operation management.


Companies acting together and confidently seeking their goal – to form a long-term cargo service platform at Siauliai Airport, since 2011 until now have handled about 18,000 tons of cargo, which has accounted about 27 per cent of the total amount of goods transported by air in Lithuania during that period. During this time, we managed to form intermodal freight transport chains to/from Turkey, China and Israel. While assessing fairly successful progress of the project, the companies would like to increase their volumes of this transport facility and in the long-term perspective under favorable development opportunities.

Looking at the aviation freight trends and evaluating the current capacity of the aerodrome (take off / landing runway, taxiway characteristics), Municipal Company Siauliu Oro Uostas has taken the initiative and would plan to acquire the certificate that “Boeing” company cargo aircraft B747-800F could be accepted and released at Siauliai military aerodrome,  accordingly it would be sought to increase cargo flows attracting new air carriers and remain competitive in the region.
