: May 14, 2020 - : 3:48 am

SMEA has become the first air cargo airline to achieve the Republic of San Marino AOC certification, having satisfied the CAR OPS 1 requirements for the certification. SMEA extended its management services to cargo operations and started flying an A300-600R T7-ASK cargo aircraft towards the end of 2019. The company recently carried out 27 charter flights from China to Italy for transportation of important and much needed medical supplies.
Waked Jayyousi, Accountable Manager for SMEA Airlines remarked, “We are living in times where we have realized how fundamental air cargo is for our daily lives. We have demonstrated to the San Marino CAA that our special cargo operations meet international standards during such a vulnerable and critical period”.
David Colindres, the President of the San Marino Aircraft Registry commented “SMEA deserves to be acclaimed not only for becoming first air cargo airline on the San Marino Registry but also for their efforts and support with medical supplies during the Covid 19 pandemic. The air cargo industry is entering a period where it must ensure that sensitive cargo is transported and delivered to the highest standards, meticulously and punctiliously.”
The company has already completed eight (8) flights (from China) to Pisa and Bologna. The aircraft – T7-ASK – was appreciated due to its high dispatch reliability and non-stop service to the homeland. SMEA will also fly to other EU destinations and continue its medical missions till the end of June 2020.
