AirBridgeCargo Airlines’ increasing network helped it exceed 1,000 Boeing 747 freighter flights at Amsterdam Schiphol and Frankfurt airports in 2016. AirBridgeCargo is now the biggest all-cargo operator in Amsterdam and the second largest airline. It is also the second biggest cargo carrier in Frankfurt.
Robert van de Weg, senior vice president, Sales & Marketing said: “After the national carriers, we are now the largest cargo carrying airline in both Amsterdam and Frankfurt, which makes us proud. Exceeding 1,000 flights in a year at both airports not only shows our commitment to both countries, it is demonstrates the level of support we are gaining from customers. We have operated more Boeing 747 freighter services from AMS and FRA in 2016 because of the level of demand and this growth in our volume is a reflection of our customers’ confidence in our service levels. We wish to thank all of our customers and our local teams at both airports for helping us to reach these significant milestones at two of Europe’s most important cargo gateways. We expect further growth in 2017.”
ABC helps connect customers across the Netherlands and Germany and around the world to its global network in Europe, Scandinavia, North America and Asia via its hub in Moscow with point-to-point deliveries within 48 hours globally. The airline has now achieved 13 consecutive years of tonnage growth. As well as expanding its Boeing 747 freighter fleet to 16 aircraft in 2016 with the arrival of its ninth new Boeing 747-8F, AirBridgeCargo also launched new routes, including Phnom Penh, Seattle, Heathrow and Oslo. Further expansion of its scheduled cargo operations is planned in 2017.
