July 4 - AirBridgeCargo Airlines (ABC) has introduced a weekly freighter service to Phnom Penh in Cambodia, with effect from July 5.

The new service will arrive in Cambodia from Moscow's Sheremetyevo International Airport via Singapore, and will return directly to Moscow.

ABC says that the route will accommodate trade lanes from Cambodia to Europe and the USA, as well as complementing its existing Singapore flights.

"Against the backdrop of China's slowing export growth, the Cambodian market looks appealing with double-digit growth in 2015, supported by ambitious airport development plans," said ABC's senior vice president, marketing and sales, Robert van de Weg.

Operating the new service with its B747 freighter, ABC says that it offers over 100 tonnes of cargo capacity, in addition to nose loading capability for outsize cargoes.
