SEP 16, 2015: AirBridgeCargo Airlines (ABC) is heading into the final quarter of 2015 with constant growth after reporting a 17 percent year-on-year rise in tonnage for the opening eight months of the year.
In the period to the end of August, ABC transported 300,000 tonnes of cargo across its global network linking the largest trade markets of Asia, Europe, the USA and Russia. ABC’s expansion strategy of entering new markets enabled the airline to achieve a stable load factor of 67 percent and increase freight ton-kilometers by 22 percent.
Traffic in August rose by 14 percent over the same month a year ago to over 39,000 tonnes, with FTK’s climbing 15 percent.
Denis Ilin, executive president of AirBridgeCargo Airlines, said, “This exceptional performance is the result of the combined work of ABC’s global team. We are exerting our best efforts to maintain the level of growth we achieved in 2014 and to improve this by providing our customers with reliable and efficient transportation services. During the first eight months of 2015 not only have we been developing our route network and fleet but also investing heavily in service technology and attracting the best industry experts to support ABC’s clients worldwide. I would like to thank every ABC customer for their loyalty as always and my team for its commitment.”
The professionalism of its personnel is one of the main drivers of AirBridgeCargo’s 11 years of consecutive growth. The airline continues to recruit highly-skilled and experienced cargo professionals and to develop its sales network infrastructure with local ABC sales representatives at all of its online stations to support customers.
