ABC adds Taipei

April 11 - AirBridgeCargo Airlines (ABC) has launched its 12th destination in the Asia Pacific region with a twice-weekly Boeing 747 freighter service to Taipei, Taiwan.

The new service to Taipei will operate from Moscow Sheremetyevo, Russia every Wednesday and Saturday, returning via Hanoi in Vietnam, and enables ABC to link Taipei with its network of destinations in the Middle East, Europe and the USA for imports and exports.

ABC saw export volumes from the Asia Pacific region rise 25 percent in 2016 to over 265,000 tonnes, and the airline is confident of further growth this year.

Sergey Lazarev, general director ABC, said: "Taipei is a mature and stable air cargo market generating volumes close to 500,000 tonnes per annum so it is a major origin, destination and transit point for freight. This includes exports of electronic components, machinery, textiles as well as a diverse range of import cargoes."

The addition of Taipei means ABC has doubled its route network for customers in the region in the last two years, offering B747 freighter services to and from Tokyo, Seoul, Singapore, Hanoi, Phnom Penh, Hong Kong and the Chinese cities of Shanghai, Beijing, Chengdu, Chongqing and Zhengzhou.

ABC operates 79 B747 freighter flights a week from the region, giving customers connections via its Moscow hub to 14 destinations in Europe and five major gateways in the USA.
