Russia’s ABC Airlines expands footprint in Asia with Dhaka service
Feb 26, 2019: AirBridgeCargo Airlines (ABC Airlines) has recently added Dhaka, the capital of Bangladesh, to its international network.
The all cargo carrier will operate the B747 service twice-weekly to accommodate the country's emerging export flows, which have seen westbound volumes grow robustly in recent years.
This becomes the 14th destination in ABC's Asian network and extends the airline's ability to guarantee fast and seamless cargo deliveries to Europe, Russia, and the USA.
The flight will be operated in conjunction with AirBridgeCargo's Shanghai, China, service and will give customers a vast choice of international connections over its Moscow cargo hub.
'We have been reviewing the possibility of Bangladesh coverage for the last couple of years. The country's emerging volumes tipped over 25 percent growth last year as the number of manufacturers based in this country increased.
'This fact makes us feel confident that our operations will be appreciated by customers, especially by those with garments and apparel commodities, which constitute the major part of traffic from Bangladesh,' highlighted Sergey Lazarev, general director of AirBridgeCargo Airlines.
He adds: 'With the lion's share of cargo being Europe and USA bound, we will be able to leverage these flows, carrying various kinds of cargo, including temp-sensitive products, oversized and heavy shipments, live animals, e-commerce and others.'
