AirBridgeCargo adds Zhengzhou freighter flights

AirBridgeCargo adds Zhengzhou freighter flights

   AirBridgeCargo Airlines (ABC), Russia's largest scheduled all-cargo carrier, has launched a three-times-a-week Boeing 747-400 freighter service to Zhengzhou.

   ABC already operates routes from Beijing, Hong Kong and Shanghai to Russia and other major cities in Europe. The new flights, which started Aug. 19, will operate every Wednesday, Friday and Saturday on a routing from Maastricht and Amsterdam in the Netherlands through Yekaterinburg and Krasnoyarsk in Russia and onto Zhengzhou.

   The freighter operator expects a high proportion of its 112 tons capacity per flight from the Chinese city to be filled with high-tech cargoes from the large electronics production plants in the Zhengzhou region.

   ABC will feed cargo onto its flights to Zhengzhou from across Europe, using its existing road feeder network to deliver shipments to the Netherlands for flight departures from Maastricht and Amsterdam. Similarly, it will offer distribution to major points around Europe for incoming freight from China.

   'We have all seen that 12th five-year development plan of China (2011-2015) which presupposes significant growth of many provinces and we want to ensure ABC is there in the center of this development, building our presence and offering excellent air logistics solutions,' said Tatyana Arslanova, the carrier's executive president, in a statement.

   ABC's network now includes Amsterdam, Frankfurt, Maastricht, Milan, Zaragoza, Moscow, Krasnoyarsk, Hong Kong, Beijing, Shanghai, Seoul, Paris, Yekaterinburg, Chicago, Almaty, Zhengzhou and Atyrau.
