ABC now the biggest all-cargo carrier in Amsterdam


AirBridgeCargo Airlines’ (ABC) growing fleet and network has allowed it to operate over 1,000 Boeing 747 Freighter flights at Amsterdam Airport Schiphol and Frankfurt Airport for the first time in 2016.

It is now the largest all-cargo operator in Amsterdam and second largest overall for tonnage after the national carrier, and the second biggest cargo carrier in Frankfurt.

ABC connects customers around the world via its hub in Moscow with point-to-point deliveries within 48 hours with a fleet of 16 747s and new routes for 2016 including Phnom Penh, Seattle, London Heathrow and Oslo, with more to come in 2017.

Senior vice president sales & marketing, Robert van de Weg says: “Exceeding 1,000 flights in a year at both airports not only shows our commitment to both countries, it is demonstrates the level of support we are gaining from customers.”

“We have operated more Boeing 747 freighter services from AMS and FRA in 2016 because of the level of demand and this growth in our volume is a reflection of our customers’ confidence in our service levels.”
