April 7 - AirBridgeCargo Airlines (ABC) posted a 20 percent increase in tonnage for the first quarter of 2015, carrying 103,816 tonnes across its international route network.

"Adding more capacity at the beginning of 2015 allowed us to maintain and even improve our leading position in our core markets in Europe, the USA and Asia by increasing frequencies out of these regions and opening new on-line stations," said ABC executive president Denis Ilin.

Igor Telpukhovskiy, ABC's chief financial officer, explained that the company also achieved a 20 percent reduction in operational costs per landing for the first quarter of 2015.
