Continuing 11 straight years of consecutive growth, AirBridgeCargo Airlines, part of the Volga-Dnepr Group, has had a 17 percent year-on-year rise in tonnage for the first eight months of 2015. By the end of August, the all-cargo carrier had transported 300,000 tonnes of cargo across its global network. By expanding into new markets, the carrier was able to achieve a stable load factor of 67 percent and increase freight-tonne-kilometers (FTK) by 22 percent.
In August alone, the carrier saw traffic rise by 14 percent over August 2014 to more than 39,000 tonnes, with FTKs increasing by 15 percent.
“During the first eight months of 2015, not only have we been developing our route network and fleet, but also investing heavily in service technology and attracting the best industry experts to support ABC’s clients worldwide,” said Denis Ilin, executive president of AirBridgeCargo.
To date this year, ABC has appointed regional sales managers and executives in Italy, Finland, Germany, Hanoi, the United States and Singapore. It has also strengthened its customer service and revenue capacity control teams, both regionally and globally, centralized key account management, and increased the number of personnel at its Moscow Sheremetyevo hub to provide smooth transit and transfer operations.
