Home Search Send to Friend Latest Travel News Asia Friday, 2 May 2014

Effective from 9 May, AirBridgeCargo Airlines will expand its services in Central Europe with direct flights to and from Munich with a Boeing 747 freighter.

The new Munich flight to Moscow’s Sheremetyevo airport will be in addition to the four existing weekly Boeing 737 flights operated by Atran Cargo Airlines, also part of Volga Dnepr Group.

AirBridgeCargo’s B747 all-cargo flight between the Bavarian capital and its hub in Moscow will operate every Friday at midday.

Walter Morris, Head of Business Development of ABC in Southern Germany, said, "Being able to offer connections to the largest Asian gateways such as Shanghai, Beijing, Chengdu, Zhengzhou, Hong Kong, Seoul and Tokyo-Narita will make ABC a top product for the Bavarian air cargo community, and the direct freighter link between the Bavarian capital and Russia will add attractiveness to our product."

Germany has always been one of the most important markets contributing to ABC’s growth over the last decade. Earlier this year ABC launched scheduled B747 services to and from Leipzig, extending the group’s strong association with the airport, where it has invested in a modern aircraft maintenance and repair facility to serve a variety of aircraft types.

Denis Ilin, Executive President ABC, said, "Our decision to introduce the new service was motivated by increased customer demand for cargo services from Germany to Russia and to Asia. In the first quarter of 2014, we increased export traffic from Germany to Russia by 51%, way above market trends, and we also recorded strong demand on our routes from Germany to Asia."
