Novosibirsk joins World Cargo Airports Alliance


Joining founders, Zhengzhou (China) and Frankfurt-Hahn (Germany) airports, Novosibirsk Tolmachevo Airport has become a member of the World Cargo Airports Alliance (WCAA). The organisation was founded in May 2014 at the initiative of Zhengzhou Xinzheng Airport and Frankfurt-Hahn Airport in order to create a cargo airports alliance that is cost effective, efficient and top class in customer services. The members anticipate that the WCAA will allow them to attract more airlines to operate among the Alliance airports due to a unified client approach.

Novosibirsk is the largest transit air hub in the Asian part of Russia. The airport has two runways, provides handling services of regular cargo flights for both Russian and foreign airlines such as AirBridgeCargo, Volga-Dnepr, Cargolux, Yangtze River Express, Nordic Global Airlines and others. The capacity of Tolmachevo Cargo freight complex is over 50,000 tonnes per year and in 2014 it expects to handle over 32,000 tonnes of cargo and mail.
