Russia’s largest cargo carrier, AirBridgeCargo Airlines (ABC), is expanding its presence in the US market with the launch of B747-8F freighter flights linking Dallas/Fort Worth (DFW) with Amsterdam and Moscow. The new twice-weekly all-cargo flights from Dallas/Fort Worth will operate to Amsterdam Schiphol and Moscow’s Sheremetyevo airports.
The airline, part of Volga-Dnepr Group, is also developing its current services to Chicago, introducing direct flights from Frankfurt. The new routes are part of AirBridgeCargo’s new summer schedule and commence on 31 March 2014. Denis Ilin, executive president of AirBridgeCargo Airlines, said: “Chicago has been a very successful route for us since we commenced services on the route in 2012 and the extra B747F flight a week from O’Hare International Airport will provide welcome additional capacity for our customers. Expanding services in the US market is a logical step in the airline’s development and means we can increase our ability to offer fast and efficient freight deliveries for customers doing business in North America, Europe, Asia and Russia.”
