AirBridgeCargo Airlines (ABC), Russia’s largest international cargo airline and a part of Volga-Dnepr Group, has increased its flights from Moscow to Milan to three times a week.
The new Boeing 747 all-cargo service will operate every Tuesday and is in addition to ABC’s existing flights on Thursdays and Sundays. AirBridgeCargo has served the Italian city since 2009.
The airline’s hub model for cargo transportation via Moscow’s Sheremetyevo Airport means it is able to connect Milan with the largest markets in Asia including Shanghai, Hong Kong, Beijing, Zhengzhou, Chengdu, Seoul and Tokyo.
Tatyana Arslanova, Executive President of AirBridgeCargo, said: “Milan is a very important and successful route for us and through close communication with our customers and constant monitoring of demand levels and trends in the market, we have introduced a third weekly frequency as a strategic step to increase our footprint in the European market and to meet the level of capacity our customers need from us. We expect cargo flows from Asia to Milan through our Sheremetyevo hub to increase, and we are equally confident in the market from Milan, which is being stimulated by the emerging positive trends in the Chinese and European economies.”
