Potential Merger of IG Cargo (Basel) and IG Air Cargo Switzerland
After several discussions and evaluations the members of the local board in Basel are convinced that this step is beneficial for everybody and would generate considerable advantages:
§ One vote and joint performance at all three national airport
§ Focus on location promotion at the EAP
§ The current board continues – continuity
§ Independence as local section in Basel is preserved
Mr Gian Carlo Alessi will be available for the post of President of the section Basel-Mulhouse. He will tackle the current challenges with the existing board and also address new topics.
Board members of both associations are convinced that this is a very good and future-oriented solution for the continued existence of a strong Cargo Community Association represented at the three major Swiss international airports jointly under the umbrella of IG Air Cargo Switzerland.
In case the members of the IG Cargo (Basel) will accept the proposals submitted by their board at the general assembly on 25.9.2018 we will jointly organise a founding meeting of the new section “IG Air Cargo Basel-Mulhouse” immediately after this assembly trying to convince all “old members” to become members of our Interest Group. More information will then be made available.
We can be proud that our IG as apparently enjoys a positive image among air cargo stakeholders all over Switzerland and are happy to welcome the new potential members.
