AirBridgeCargo Airlines Increases Flights to Rickenbacker International Airport

A year after entering the Columbus market, AirBridgeCargo Airlines is expanding its scheduled freighter operations at Rickenbacker International Airport (LCK) to a twice-weekly frequency, doubling its airfreight solutions for customers in Ohio, USA.

AirBridgeCargo Airlines introduced Columbus into its global network in April 2018 and, so far, has seen stable demand to/from Rickenbacker International Airport, accommodating growing trade flows onboard the maindeck capacity of its Boeing 747 freighter services.

“We feel that our weekly operations to/from Columbus greatly benefit our customers as we operate to this cargo-friendly airport, providing dedicated, high quality services and leveraging the export/import volumes of the region,” said Sergey Lazarev, General Director of AirBridgeCargo Airlines. “In 2018, our volumes tipped over 5,000 tonnes to/from LCK and we feel confident that our performance and customer feedback means our second weekly flight will also be well supported.”

The airline is planning to introduce its second scheduled weekly rotation this month, complementing its existing Thursday flights from Columbus and offering customers wider connectivity options.

“AirBridgeCargo’s expansion is further proof that Rickenbacker is one of the industry’s new global gateways,” said Joseph Nardone, President & CEO of the Columbus Regional Airport Authority, which operates Rickenbacker. “By moving imports and exports through Rickenbacker, businesses can eliminate hours and costs from their supply chain, creating better efficiencies and higher profits.”
