Schiphol to be at heart of ABC's strategy for Asia


Amsterdam – AirBridgeCargo (ABC) said Amsterdam Shiphol Airport will be at the heart of its development strategy as it builds on a record 2008.

In the first nine months of the year ABC recorded a 68 percent increase in sales to US$ 344.1 million and it expects its best ever year for revenues in 2008, building on three previous consecutive years of record growth.

The group’s revenues exceeded $ 1 billion last year and in the first nine months of it was $ 1.26 billion.

ABC currently operates seven Boeing 747 all-cargo flights a week from Amsterdam to Moscow and on to Beijing, Shanghai and Hong Kong.

Robert Song, global commercial director for ABC, said: “Amsterdam is one of our main gateways in Europe and we are experiencing strong growth there. ABC is gaining strong support from the forwarding industry in the Netherlands for both our services to Russia and Asia.”

In the last six months, AirBridgeCargo has added three new B747-400ERFs to its fleet which have been flying almost daily to Moscow. The airline has also placed an order for five next generation B747-800 aircraft with an option for five more aircraft.
