October 17 - AirBridgeCargo Airlines (ABC) has appointed AirLink Cargo as its general sales agent in the Pacific northwest region of the United States.

The airline has achieved strong growth in the US market since the introduction of its first route in North America in 2011 linking Moscow and Chicago. This year, ABC has doubled its weekly Boeing 747 freighter services to and from Chicago and opened a second route to Dallas/Fort Worth. This winter it will operate seven flights a week from Chicago and three services a week ex Dallas/Fort Worth.
AirLink will represent ABC in seven northwest states: Washington, Oregon, Idaho, Montana, Wyoming, Utah, and Nevada. Its team will provide sales and customer service support for ABC's flights from the US to Europe, Russia and Asia.
