AirBridgeCargo adds Phnom Penh to South East Asian network


AirBridgeCargo Airlines (ABC) is to increase its coverage in South East Asia with Boeing 747 Freighter services to Phnom Penh from 5 July.

The weekly service to Cambodia’s capital will operate on a Moscow – Singapore – Phnom Penh route before returning to Sheremetyevo International Airport. The 747F will offer more than 100 tonnes of capacity, accommodating trade lanes from Cambodia to Europe and the US.

ABC senior vice president, marketing & sales, Robert van de Weg says while China’s export growth is slowing, Cambodia is growing at double-digit rates and has ambitious airport development plans.

He says: “By establishing our footprint in this country, not only do we open up new destinations for our customers, but we also strengthen our position in Southeast Asia – the main driver of world trade.”

Van de Weg says textile and garment exports will benefit the most from the new service and the extra capacity in and out of Singapore will strengthen ABC’s position in the region.
