  • AirBridgeCargo Airlines saw a 30-percent year-on-year rise in tonnage for January.
  • AirBridgeCargo last year expaned of its carrier’s fleet and network in response to customer needs.
  • AirBridgeCargo launched new destinations to Singapore, Hanoi, Helsinki, Los Angeles, and Atlanta in 2015.

AirBridgeCargo Airlines (ABC) has seen an encouraging beginning to 2016, with 30 percent year-on-year rise in tonnage for January. That number marks record performance and growth for the airline for the first month of the year.

ABC transported 43,605 tons of cargo on board its Boeing freighter fleet serving the Europe, North America, and Asia Pacific markets. The strong performance is attributed to last year’s dynamic expansion of the carrier’s fleet and network in response to diverse needs of ABC’s customers worldwide.

Newly launched destinations in different parts of the world include Singapore, Hanoi, Helsinki, Los Angeles, and Atlanta.

Supported in 2015 by the addition of three Boeing 747 freighters to the ABC fleet such a multi-destination network allowed ABC to enter 2016 with one of the highest growth performance levels in the industry.

“For ABC January results came as a confirmation of our chosen strategy based on a combination of operating a highly efficient fleet, network expansion to the points of production and consumption, and a high level of service quality delivered by a team of skilled air cargo professionals,” said Denis Ilin, ABC’s executive president. “We will continue this path in 2016, offering to our customers the maximum range of services using unique capabilities of 747 freighters.”

This year will be another challenging one for ABC, Ilin noted. “We are being asked by clients for direct cargo service to some destinations, which we are still missing in our network,” he said, “so ABC sees its further development in creating a really global network and competitive global value proposition to the customers by enhancing our experience and high quality air cargo delivery services to new regional markets and new customers. Only that way will we be able to adequately respond to evolving needs of our clients and challenges of global economy.”
