AirBridgeCargo (ABC) Airlines has added twice-weekly flights to Los Angeles to its North America freighter operations, connecting the US west coast with its global network. ABC began operations to the North American market in 2011 and already serves Chicago and Dallas/Fort Worth and following what it said were four years of intensive development, the company has achieved annual volumes across the Atlantic of over 55,000 tonnes.
“Launching Los Angeles flights is part of our ongoing commitment to develop our presence in the US market and follows strong customer interest in both China and the United States. The Los Angeles service will complement our global network and this will benefit customers that have relied on our services for more than 10 years now,” said Robert van de Weg, ABC’s senior VP, sales & marketing.“
Th e United States represents one of the main strategic markets in the company’s further development. Since the company’s US launch, ABC has successfully opened sales offices in every major gateway in the country, including Chicago, Dallas, Houston and New York.
In 2014, ABC increased its weekly B747 freighter services through Chicago to seven frequencies per week and opened a second route to Dallas/Fort Worth and with the start of our summer 2015 schedule, this was increased to nine. “We are confident that our expectations for the development of the west coast market will be fully realised and that our team’s hard work, together with our customers’ support, will prove to be a great success for us both,” said Hendrik Falk, ABC’s VP North and South America.
