Another record setting year for AirBridgeCargo
Nov 14, 2016: Moscow based AirBridgeCargo Airlines (ABC) witnesses another record setting year in 2016 with the transportation of 498,177 tonnes in the 10 months ended October 30, 2016 across its growing international route network, a rise of 29 percent over the same period in 2015. Last year, the airline set a record of 483,000 tonnes flown.
With two months of the year still to go, ABC has achieved its thirteenth consecutive year of growth.
The airline carried 57,608 tonnes in October, representing 30 percent year-on-year growth in tonnage.
The new record is based on tonnage flown onboard AirBridgeCargo’s own Boeing 747 cargo fleet and on ACMI partner aircraft.
Robert van de Weg, senior vice president, Sales & Marketing at Volga-Dnepr Group, ABC’s parent company, said, “In such a challenging air cargo market, it is important to earn customer trust in the quality and reliability of your service and to demonstrate the ability to provide responsive solutions – now increasingly for special cargo categories like pharmaceuticals and off-size cargo.”
2016 has seen further expansion of the airline’s cargo network with new routes to meet the requirements of its global customers. A new Houston-Abu Dhabi operation was followed by the introduction of all-cargo services connecting ABC’s global hub in Moscow with Chongqing in China, Phnom Penh in Cambodia, Seattle in the U.S, Heathrow in the United Kingdom and, most recently, Oslo, Norway, to serve the country’s thriving market for salmon exports.
In September, AirBridgeCargo took delivery of its ninth new Boeing 747-8 Freighter, taking its total fleet to 16 747Fs. This latest aircraft was the fifth new 747-8F to join the fleet of Volga-Dnepr Group since it confirmed an order with Boeing for 20 more 747-8Fs in July.
