Our History

Formally a Swiss cargo airline, Transvalair Group has operated as a major freight forwarder since 1976. Despite rigorous growth, we have maintained a reputation for customer focus and personally tailored services. Unlike some of our high volume competitors, we treat every job individually and every customer personally. For this reason, Transvalair Group is often the logistics company of choice when it comes to unusual products or far flung locations.

“Transvalair has long been recognised as one of the leading freight forwarding and cargo handling companies in the world.”

Founded in Switzerland in 1973 as an airline, Transvalair Group made its first dedicated cargo flight from Sion to Khartoum in December 1973. In the early days the company’s head office was in Sion, Switzerland, but, now operating purely as a freight forwarding agent, this has since been transferred to the UK where we have developed a global network and now operate on a worldwide scale.

Completely independent, Transvalair has long been recognised as one of the leading freight forwarding and cargo handling companies in the world.

Interesting fact: during our history as a Swiss Cargo Airline our aircraft transported over 95,000 tons of cargo, and flew more than 11,000,000 kilometres, operating with three CL44 cargo aircraft.
