AirBridgeCargo soars by 31% in May


AirBridgeCargo Airlines (ABC) has continued strong growth with 31 per cent year-on-year growth in both May and the first five months of 2016.

The Russian carrier carried 50,482 tonnes in May and 238,154 tonnes in the first five months, assisted by expanding its network through new and increased routes. ABC has started a Houston – Abu Dhabi route and started flights to Africa via its partner, CargoLogicAir. The existing Singapore and Munich services have benefitted from a third weekly frequency each.

ABC executive president, Denis Ilin says: “Our figures for May are a good indicator of our performance as they demonstrate that our sales and business forces are targeted in the right direction. Despite flat market conditions and depressive yields, we have seen confident support from our clients and this has bolstered our operations and ensured further growth.”

Ilin adds that ABC will continue to develop and grow despite the challenges of 2016. “We look forward to the second half of 2016, awaiting its ups and downs and always being ready to adequately respond to the evolving needs of our clients and the challenges presented by the global economy.”
