AirBridgeCargo adds second flight to Rickenbacker


A year after starting flights to Rickenbacker International Airport, AirBridgeCargo Airlines will add a second weekly flight to serve customers in Ohio.

AirBridgeCargo started flights in April 2018 and has seen stable demand to and from Rickenbacker, accommodating growing trade flows onboard the Boeing 747 Freighter services.

The second weekly rotation is scheduled to start this month, complementing existing Thursday flights and offering customers wider connectivity options.

Sergey Lazarev, general director of AirBridgeCargo Airlines says: “We feel that our weekly operations to/from Columbus greatly benefit our customers as we operate to this cargo-friendly airport, providing dedicated, high quality services and leveraging the export/import volumes of the region.

“In 2018, our volumes tipped over 5,000 tonnes to/from LCK and we feel confident that our performance and customer feedback means our second weekly flight will also be well supported.”

Joseph Nardone, president and CEO of Columbus Regional Airport Authority says: “AirBridgeCargo’s expansion is further proof that Rickenbacker is one of the industry’s new global gateways. By moving imports and exports through Rickenbacker, businesses can eliminate hours and costs from their supply chain, creating better efficiencies and higher profits.”
