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.Overnight we operate four dedicated Boeing 737 freighter aircraft on a schedule that connects all main centers in South Africa.
