07.10.2013 | AIRBRIDGECARGO AIRLINES REPORTS GROWTH FOR FIRST EIGHT MONTHS OF 2013

AirBridgeCargo Airlines (ABC), Russia’s largest scheduled cargo carrier, transported 223,732 tons of cargo in the first eight months of 2013 across its network linking Europe, Asia, Russia and North America, a 4% increase compare to the same period of 2012.

In August, the airline carried 30,538 tons of cargo, 5% up on the same month last year. Average load factors were also higher, up 6% to 73%.

 

Positive growth results, especially in low summer season, were due to the two key factors: the continued support of our loyal partners, as well as the airline’s continued and focused  work on increasing the operating indicator and to deliver further increases in the quality of its air cargo transportation product.

 

AirBridgeCargo’s punctuality indicator averaged 80% over the last eight months, while the regularity of services was 97%. These results are on a par with the performance levels of the world’s leading airlines.

 

As part of implementing the Cargo2000 quality philosophy in its operations, work to increase ABC’s ‘delivered as promised’ (DAP) performance is also showing a positive outcome. Overall, DAP averaged 75% for the month. On key destinations for customers (Frankfurt- Beijing, Amsterdam- Moscow, Chicago- Moscow, Shanghai- Frankfurt, Shanghai- Milan, Shanghai-Moscow) the airline’s DAP indicator was over 85% and reached almost 100% on some routes.

 

Operating a modern and efficient fleet of Boeing 747 freighters is also a part of AirBridgeCargo’s commitment to continually improve the quality of the product offered to its international customers.
