ABC ups its winter freighter frequencies


AirBridgeCargo Airlines’ (ABC) has increased its winter B747 freighter frequencies linking major markets in Europe, North America and Asia Pacific, via the airline’s hub in Moscow. In Europe, Russia’s largest scheduled cargo airline has launched extra weekly frequencies to/from Munich, Milan and Amsterdam. In Asia, AirBridgeCargo has also increased flights to/from Hong Kong and Shanghai with an extra service per week on both routes.

ABC has also extended its capacity for customers in North America with two additional flights a week to Chicago and one to Dallas/Fort Worth.

The success of ABC’s business development activities, reflected in its strong operating results, has enabled the airline to further increase its footprint on its existing markets. In the first nine months of 2014, ABC saw an increase in tonnage carried on all of its routes in Europe, North America and Asia Pacific, with flown tonnage to/from the US, Asia and Europe growing by 28, 14 and 13 per cent respectively over this period.

The highest growth rate was seen on North America-Europe routes with a 77 per cent growth in tonnage. Volumes from the US to Amsterdam doubled over this period. The airline has also seen stable growth from the US to Germany, which reflects strong customer support since the launch of direct flights from the US to Frankfurt and new services to Munich launched earlier this year. ABC’s volumes from the US to Frankfurt rose 26 per cent in the nine months to 30 September 2014.
