AirBridgeCargo Airlines (ABC) has launched a new freighter service to Ho Chi Minh (Saigon), increasing dedicated maindeck capacity to and from one of the major manufacturing hotspots in Asia, and adding it to its international network of more than 30 destinations.

Ho Chi Minh becomes ABCs 12th online destination in Asia and second in Vietnam after Hanoi, strongly reinforcing the airlines presence in the region.

The Boeing 747 freighter flight will link customers from Singapore and Ho Chi Minh with other destinations in ABCs international network through its cargo hub in Moscow to guarantee 48-hour delivery times, including ground handling.

Mr. Nguyen Nam Tien - Vice Director of Tan Son Nhat International Airport (TIA), said, We greatly welcome AirBridgeCargo Airlines at our airport and to the Ho Chi Minh City market. We strongly believe that our cooperation will strengthen the position of SGN airport, as local freight forwarders will get access to direct freighter services to Russia, the EU and North America. The ability and professional services of AirBridgeCargo Airlines, together with the solid experience of the TIA, will facilitate market development of freight services in Vietnam and serve as a solid ground for the Asia market

Ho Chi Minh, coupled with Hanoi, will facilitate a total coverage of the Vietnamese catchment area, thus providing more options for deliveries for customers.

On the back of economic growth of more than 7% and increasing export volumes, Vietnam seems like the right place to offer direct freight services to other regions, especially Europe and North America something we can offer to the market with a diversified number of destinations and high level of service quality, including for special cargoes, said Sergey Lazarev, General Director of AirBridgeCargo Airlines. We have been expanding our network following our customers needs and expectations, and segment-wise. We foresee support from companies specializing in electronics and garments shipments.
