In 2003 we began our journey through tortuous paths of air freight world. We were ‘armed’ with two Boeing 747-200 freighters and cargo enthusiast, who strongly believed in realization of our project. Within just two years we managed to align scheduled network between Asia, Europe, and Russia to deliver goods manufactured in Asia to their final consumers in Europe and beyond, broadening horizons of cooperation and strengthening our positions. AirBridgeCargo has become one of the major players at the market, opening new destinations (Beijing, Amsterdam) and fueling up its fleet (Boeing 747-200).

2006 has gone down in the history of ABC and our personnel – this was the year ABC has acquired its own Air Operator Certificate, thus becoming an independent air freight carrier within Volga-Dnepr Group. Such an emotional and inspirational milestone has served as the right step for further growth, fleet enhancement, and ambitious future planning, with the purchase of new long-range Boeing 747-8F aircraft. We celebrated our five-year anniversary with one of the first industry acknowledgements and were named the winner of the Wings of Russia Award as Airline of the Year – Cargo Carrier Operating in Domestic and International Air Lines, followed by Fraport Cargo Services awards - Best Cargo Performer 2010 award after ABC increased its freight volume through Frankfurt Airport by nearly 50%.
