Atran Airlines Launches Flights Between Moscow and Xi'an, China

Atran Airlines, a Russian air express carrier within the Volga-Dnepr Group, has launched flights between Xi'an, China, and Moscow, Russia.

“Embracing new destinations and leveraging emerging markets for cross-border shipments are on the radar of our business development. With global e-commerce growing at 20% per year and forecast for a nearly 15% uptick in Russia over the next three-four years, the demand for high-quality air cargo services will be high. We are ready to guarantee this in close partnership with Russian Post and China Post,” said Dmitry Obsharov, General Director of Atran Airlines. “Being part of ‘Belt and Road’ initiative, this ancient capital of China will undergo developments which will facilitate its transformation into a multi-modal hub with emerging volumes going through the airport.”

Atran Airlines recently expanded fleet, which now comprises Boeing 737-400SF and Boeing 737-800BCF cargo aircraft, will support the company’s network expansion.
