20.06.2016 | AIRBRIDGECARGO REPORTS 31% TONNAGE UPSURGE YEAR-OVER-YEAR FOR MAY

AirBridgeCargo airlines is following its steady path of confident performance which is supported by “double 31% tonnage increase” - for May 2016 and for the first five months of 2016 – figures that resulted in 50 482 tons and 238 154 tons, respectively, of cargo carried throughout its expanded international network. The airline's FTK performance provided secure foothold with increase of 21% increase for May and 24% for the first five months of 2016.

The growth in cargo tonnage has been assisted by dynamic network expansion which saw ABC introducing flights to new destinations (Houston – Abu-Dhabi) and offering services to new continent (Africa) via flights of its partner airline, as well as up-gauging and strengthening positions for well-established markets (third frequency to Singapore and Munich). Apart from that, the carrier has been receptive to new cargo opportunities and challenges with special cargo delivery either on its scheduled flights or on ad-hoc basis by organizing charters. New markets are well supported by a modern fleet of Boeing 747 freighters on board of which the Company accommodates its customers’ cargo to different parts of the world providing numerous connectivity options via its hub in Moscow Sheremetyevo airport. 

 

“May figures came as 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, which has bolstered our operations and ensured further growth” – pointed out Executive president of AirBridgeCargo Airlines, Denis Ilin. 

 

“So far 2016 has been both challenging and opportunistic in terms of supporting existing network and developing new services and destinations. We look forward to the second half of 2016 awaiting for its ups and downs, always ready to adequately respond to evolving needs of our clients and challenges of global economy. Consistently high level of service reliability and close communication with clients is our way to successfully address tough market” - added Denis Ilin.
