Line-Haul Services

What we do for couriers, freight agents, and the express logistics industry.

BidAir Cargo operates a closed loop system whereby cargo is delivered to and collected from aircraft directly by BidAir Cargo employees, thus enhancing cargo security and express service delivery. Short hand-in and hand-out times enable our partners in the courier and express logistics industry to adhere to tight delivery deadlines. The BidAir Cargo network spans the South African domestic landscape as well as Southern and East Africa with over 120 flights daily. Overnight we operate four dedicated Boeing 737 freighter aircraft on a schedule that connects all main centres in South Africa.
