AirBridgeCargo Airlines adds Kabul

July 20 - AirBridgeCargo Airlines has launched a charter freighter service to Kabul, Afghanistan, operating every Tuesday using Boeing 747-200/300 cargo aircraft and offering some 100 tonnes of capacity. The city will be used as a connection to ABC's exis

The first flight carried armoured vehicles which were offloaded on arrival by Ariana, the local handling agent in Kabul. 

Dennis Gliznoutsa, Volga-Dnepr's Group Commercial Director (Charters), stated: "Despite the fact that volumes are down worldwide, the Middle East is still a vast and attractive marketplace for the Group. During these unpredictable times, we believe operating from Europe to Kabul will provide new opportunities for ABC." 

According to Tatyana Arslanova, ABC's Executive Senior Vice President, Strategy, Marketing and Sales, "The expansion of ABC's network to the Middle East is another example of our flexibility in following customers' needs." 

She added that the route provided a good example of the synergy between Volga-Dnepr Airlines and AirBridgeCargo. Volga-Dnepr has successfully performed AN-124 and IL-76 charter operations to Afghanistan for the past 10 years.
