AirBridgeCargo starts Sweden/Moscow service
AirBridgeCargo Airlines said it has extended its route network into Scandinavia with a twice-weekly Boeing 747 freighter service from Malm'-Sturup Airport in Sweden to Sheremetyevo Airport in Moscow.
The first flight took off April 14, the day before a volcanic ash cloud blanketed northern Europe and halted airline operations for much of the continent. In Sweden, ABC has appointed Sturup Aviation and Menzies Aviation as its ramp and cargo-handling partners.
'The new route is part of ABC's network development strategy and is in response to commitments of support from customers in Scandinavia that require regular cargo capacity to Russia and onto AirBridgeCargo's destinations in China, Central Asia and Japan,' the all-cargo airline said in a statement.
