ABC adds Munich to network

April 30 - Effective May 9, 2014, AirBridgeCargo Airlines (ABC) is introducing direct services to and from Munich using a Boeing 747 freighter aircraft.

The new Munich flight to Moscow's Sheremetyevo airport will operate every Friday at midday and will be in addition to the four existing weekly Boeing 737 flights operated by Atran Cargo Airlines - also part of the Volga-Dnepr Group.

"As southern Germany continues to be a major industrial growth area, the decision to expand our services by introducing a direct Boeing 747 flight from Munich to Moscow was a logical step for us," said Andrey Andreev, head of ABC business development in Europe.

"This will increase ABC's ability to offer customers in Germany fast connections to and from the Russian market as well as to the airline's international network via its Moscow hub."

Germany has been one of the most important markets contributing to ABC's growth over the last decade, said the airline, and earlier this year ABC launched scheduled B747 services to and from Leipzig airport, which was reported by HLPFI on April 2, 2014.
