AIRBRIDGECARGO Adds Atlanta to Network

[ November 23, 2015   //   ]

 AirBridgeCargo Airlines (ABC), part of Volga-Dnepr Group, has added Atlanta to its North American route network with the launch of twice-weekly flights.

The new Boeing 747 freighter services, which commenced Nov. 20th, operate on Fridays and Sundays and will connect ABC’s global route network to Atlanta, maximizing cargo connections to the US market.

At present, AirBridgeCargo provides scheduled all-cargo services to and from Chicago, Dallas, Los Angeles, and now, Atlanta with onward connections to Europe and further to the airline’s online stations in Russia and Asia.

“With these new Atlanta flights, ABC continues to improve its offering on Asia-US lanes following the successful launch of Los Angeles earlier this year,” said Robert van de Weg, ABC’s senior vice president, Sales & Marketing. “During the first 10 months of 2015, we have doubled our volumes on China-US routes.”

The US is a main focus for AirBridgeCargo. The airline has been actively developing its presence in the US since it launched its Chicago flights back in 2011. Since then, ABC has increased its network to include Dallas, Los Angeles, and now Atlanta, and achieved a compound growth rate in tonnage to/from USA of 36% and annual volumes to/from the US of over 56,000 tonnes.
