For the third year in a row AirBridgeCargo Airlines (ABC) has been recognised as the leading carrier handled by Fraport at Frankfurt Airport in terms of freight volume in its annual “Best Cargo Performer” ceremony.
Russia’s biggest cargo carrier was nominated and awarded in two categories for the “Most cargo volume in 2011” and “The biggest volume increase in 2011” after its cargo traffic grew to 104, 960 tons for the first 10 months of 2011.
“This victory reflects the strengthening of ABC’s position in Frankfurt. Under severe market conditions, including night flight restrictions, we have been able to maintain the same level of frequencies and provide customers with the same service in an outstandingly successful way. The reliable and long-term relationship between Fraport Cargo Services and ABC demonstrate a model for partnership which we would like to apply in every region throughout our network,” said Tatyana Arslanova, Executive President of AirBridgeCargo. She added that Fraport’s traditional Bembel prize was greatly welcomed by the ABC team and extended her thanks to Fraport’s handling professionals for their outstanding performance over the course of the year.
ABC operates Boeing 747-400 freighter services linking Frankfurt with Russia and other markets in Europe, China, Hong Kong and Japan. The airline currently operates 14 frequencies per week from Germany’s leading airport.
