Travel News Asia Videos Podcasts Latest Travel News Asia Tuesday, 9 September 2014

The transportation options for Basels thriving healthcare industry will be extended from 19 September 2014 with the launch of a Boeing 747 freighter service by AirBridgeCargo Airlines (ABC).

Basel has one of the highest concentrations of successful life sciences businesses in the world, including pharmaceuticals, biotechnology and medical technology organisations.

AirBridgeCargo will operate its new Basel-Moscow Sheremetyevo service every Friday. The airline's fast handling through Moscow will enable AirBridgeCargos customers to achieve less than 48-hour connections on O&D to major cities in Asia, including Shanghai, Beijing, Hong Kong, Zhengzhou, Chengdu, Seoul, and Tokyo, via the ABC hub in Moscow.

Robert van de Weg, Senior VP Marketing and Sales, ABC said, The healthcare industry relies strongly on the speed of air cargo and its ability to maintain the integrity of products through strict temperature-control services. Operating from Basel will enable us to provide a fast and reliable link into Russia and Asia for customers in the industry as well as the other industries that have grown up to support the healthcare market in Switzerland. This new route and the connections we can offer will facilitate further growth between both regions.

As an all-cargo carrier, AirBridgeCargo can adjust each of the Boeing 747s four cargo compartments between 4-29 degrees Celsius, therefore ensuring safe and reliable transportation for high-value pharma goods.

AirBridgeCargo is a member of IATA, the Cool Chain Association, TAPA, and Cargo 2000. It is represented in Basel by its GSSA partner, RTW Air Services SA.
