ABC launches new routes to Moscow

April 2 - AirBridgeCargo Airlines (ABC) is expanding its presence in Europe with new B747F services linking Moscow with Malmo in Sweden and Leipzig in Germany.

The new Malmo service to Moscow's Sheremetyevo Airport will operate every Friday between the two cities and will be in addition to the existing weekend Boeing 737 freighter flight operated by Atran Cargo Airlines, which is also part of the Volga-Dnepr Group.

"The expansion of our services to and from Scandinavia means we can offer customers additional capacity and the ability to connect via Moscow to our network in North America and Asia," said ABC's Henk-Jan van Keulen, who is responsible for business development in Europe.

ABC is also launching a weekly B747 freighter service every Tuesday to Moscow from Leipzig, where it has invested in a modern aircraft maintenance and repair facility to serve a variety of aircraft types.

"Adding Leipzig to our growing network underlines ABC's commitment to the airport and recognises its potential as a major airfreight hub in Eastern Europe," said Andrey Andreev, head of business development in Germany and Eastern Europe.

Both services will begin this month.
