AirBridgeCargo adds service from Milan to Moscow

July 1 - AirBridgeCargo Airlines (ABC), Volga-Dnepr Group's scheduled cargo airline, is expanding its freighter services from Europe to Russia with a new route between Milan and Moscow.

A Boeing 747 freighter will depart from Malpensa Airport for Moscow every Monday and Friday as an extension of the airline's Amsterdam service and providing further connections over Moscow to the Chinese cities of Beijing, Shanghai and Hong Kong, offering up to 112 tons of capacity. 

ABC currently operates 31 flights a week to and from Moscow's Sheremetyevo and Domodedovo airports, linking Frankfurt, Amsterdam, Budapest and Zaragoza with Beijing, Shanghai, Narita and Hong Kong. The airline also operates scheduled all-cargo services to Krasnoyarsk in Russia. 

Tatyana Arslanova, ABC's Executive Senior Vice President, Strategy, Marketing and Sales, said: "We will continue to expand our operations where ABC and its customers see opportunities to do so. In Milan, we have succeeded in gaining a strong, regular commitment from the local freight forwarding industry and we are therefore pleased to be able to support them with the launch of this new service." 

ABC has appointed Kales GSA as its general sales agent in Italy and SEA to provide cargo handling at Aeroporti di Milano.
