ABC flies high with XL cargoes

AirBridgeCargo Airlines (ABC) saw its volumes of ‘special commodities’ increase by over 25 percent in 2018.

Demand for the airline's services for oversized and heavy cargoes, marketed as abc XL, increased by over 20 percent compared to 2017.

The company said it expects this growth trajectory to continue in terms of shipment volumes as it increases its focus on performance quality and customer satisfaction.

Overall, total volumes carried in 2018 grew by two percent, exceeding 600,000 tonnes across ABC's international network. The increase is attributed to the introduction of new destinations notably Ho Chi Minh City in Vietnam, Shenzhen in China, Budapest in Hungary and Columbus in the USA.

Commenting on the results, ABC's general director Sergey Lazarev said that good results of 2018 stands the airline in good stead for 2019 when it will celebrate its 15th anniversary. “New challenges are ahead of us, but that’s what makes the air cargo industry an exciting place to be.”
