AirBridgeCargo Airlines

AirBridgeCargo Airlines (ABC) transported 42,480 tonnes across its network in September, a 28 per cent year-on-year (YOY) rise.

ABC also reports a 35 per cent YOY growth in demand, measured in freight tonne kilometres and a stable load factor.

Overall, during the first nine months of 2015, ABC says it has achieved 18 per cent growth in tonnage, carrying 344,130 tonnes across its growing global route network.

The carrier says the positive result was driven by strong customer support of the airline’s consistent development across existing and new markets.

In September, ABC increased capacity in all of its core markets in Europe, the US and Asia with additional flights from its already established stations, and has also expanded its service offering in the Asian region by introducing new weekly flights to/from Singapore.

ABC’s executive president, Denis Ilin, says the airline’s international team can be proud of such a positive result and it reflects the positive spirit within the airline and a deep commitment to proactive collaboration with ABC’s customers.

”In September, ABC moved from Test to Implementation Status for C2K reporting and demonstrated DAP (Delivered-As-Promised) performance of 87 per cent which is among the top five industry scores.

“AirBridgeCargo’s global team will definitely continue prioritising ‘hard’ quality as well as demonstrating a ‘soft human-face’ attitude to our customers to keep this trend up,” he says.
