Frankfurt Cargo Services (FCS) has honoured its top-performing airline customers of 2020 for their growth and agility in responding to industry disruption caused by the COVID-19 pandemic.
In keeping with its annual tradition, FCS awarded each airline with a handmade Apfelwein-Bembel cider cup to knowledge their success in the Frankfurt air cargo market over the previous 12 months.
AirBridgeCargo Airlines retained its number one position in 2020 for the highest overall tonnage level, while FCS also recognised the strong performance of Qatar Airways and China Southern Airlines in second and third places respectively.
Diana Schoeneich, Senior Director European Region at AirBridgeCargo, commented: “We would like to thank our long-time partner FCS for the recognition and this nice tradition that has been maintained for so many years.
“As AirBridgeCargo has been a winner since 2009, we thank FCS for our successful partnership and support, especially during the pandemic. Delivering much needed cargo was a challenging task in 2020.
“Thanks to teamwork, aligned internal processes and the dedication of our employees, we were able to continue supporting our European customers and contribute to the fight against the spread of COVID-19 by transporting more than 4,000 tons of specialised cargo.”
