China, June 14 – AirBridgeCargo Airlines has won prestigious award at the 2016 Asian Freight, Logistics and Supply Chain (AFLAS) Awards which was held at the Peace Hotel in Shanghai. This year ABC takes home “Best All-Cargo Airline” award which was handed out to Alexander Roschupkin, Commercial Director.

More than 15,000 readers of Asia Cargo News voted for leading industry players in different categories thus leaving only three representatives in each and giving their preferences to the best-in-class only. The event itself was coupled with Air Cargo China 2016 exhibition and conference which attracted the right audience and became an informal “get–together” after the exhibition day.


“For the last few years ABC has been recognized with a series of leading industry awards for the quality of its performance, both national and international, and we are delighted to be here, among other winners at AFLAS awards, understanding that our customers’ confidence reached the level, which took ABC to yet another height of recognition. It is an honor to be acknowledged at the Asian market – the main cargo arena of the world – and we will keep the pace further to maintain the level of trust we have obtained” – said Alexander Roschupkin, Commercial Director at AirBridgeCargo Airlines while being at the stage with the prize in his hands.


Asia was the very first region to welcome ABC back in 2004 when AirBridgeCargo’s initial B747 flight lifted off from Moscow on its way to Beijing, China. Since then, step by step the airline has been expanding its presence in Asia by launching flights to Shanghai in 2004, Hong Kong in 2006, Tokyo (Narita) in 2007, Seoul and Zhengzhou in 2010, Chengdu in 2012 and Singapore and Hanoi in 2015, and, most recently, in Chongqing. This extensive market coverage encouraged customers’ trust and resulted in 11% increase for compound average tonnage from Asia during the last five years.


As of now AFLAS award will beautify ABC’s awards collection, which so far includes 'Cargo Carrier of the Year’ for 4 consecutive years - Wings of Russia' Award, 'Best All-Cargo Carrier 2014' - Asian Freight and Supply Chain Awards, Cargo Airline of the Year Award 2015 – 'All-Cargo Airline of the Year', ‘Best Overall Carrier of the Year 2015’ - Payload Asia Awards 2015 and ANAMA Quality Awards 2016 – ‘Quality Overall Performance’. All the awards confirm that today AirBridgeCargo Airlines is a sound name in air cargo industry associated with quality, high level of service and international expertise, which has been acknowledged both by industry experts and by ABC’s customers.
