AirBridge Cargo teams up with Qantas Freight
Russia’s AirBridge Cargo, part of the Volga-Dnepr Group, has appointed Qantas Freight as its general sales agent and interline partner in Australia. The agreement is for an initial two-year period.
AirBridge Cargo has similar agreements with Air Canada and Continental Airlines in North America and Nippon Cargo Airlines in Japan.
“We will be interlining with Qantas in China and Hong Kong to open up strong two-way trade lanes between Australia and the rapidly expanding Russian marketplace. We will be looking to expand on this agreement by developing opportunities with Qantas Freight in other areas,” said Stan Wraight, vice president of the Volga-Dnepr Group responsible for scheduled cargo services.
“Qantas Freight will market and sell both AirBridge Cargo’s scheduled and charter services. This agreement represents a good business fit and will enable us to maximize the synergies between our two organizations in terms of seeking opportunities in new and emerging markets,” said Stephen Cleary, general manager of the Qantas Group.
