ABC connects to Ho Chi Minh

AirBridgeCargo Airlines (ABC) has launched a freighter service to Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam, adding it to its international network of more than 30 destinations.

The Boeing 747 freighter flight will link customers from Singapore and Ho Chi Minh City with other destinations in ABC’s international network through its cargo hub in Moscow.

The addition of Ho Chi Minh, according to ABC, reinforces its presence in the region, becoming its 12th location in Asia.

“On the back of economic growth of more than 7 percent and increasing export volumes, Vietnam seems like the right place to offer direct freight services to other regions, especially Europe and North America – something we can offer to the market with a diversified number of destinations and high level of service quality, including for special cargoes,” said Sergey Lazarev, general director of ABC.

Ho Chi Minh City, coupled with its existing services to Hanoi, will facilitate a total coverage of the Vietnamese catchment area, says ABC.
