ABC looks to Amsterdam


VOLGA-DNEPR subsidiary and scheduled B747 freighter operator AirBridgeCargo Airlines (ABC) says that Amsterdam Airport Schiphol is "at the heart" of its develop¬ment strategy.

Robert Song, ABC global commercial director, noted: "Amsterdam is one of our main gateways in Europe and we are experiencing strong growth there. We are still a relatively new airline but we have worked hard to achieve service reliability and to meet the demands of the scheduled cargo market".

"ABC is gaining strong sup¬port from the forwarding industry in the Netherlands for both our services to Russia and Asia and we value the partnerships we have established," he concluded.

The carrier currently operates seven B747 freighter scheduled services each week from Schiphol to Moscow, continuing to Beijing, Shanghai and Hong Kong. Over the last six months ABC has acquired three new B747-400ERFs and it has five B747-8Fs on order, all of which are expected to support the carrier's regular scheduled operations out of Schiphol.

However, according to Tatyana Arslanova, senior vice president for commercial and strategy at ABC: "As well as having the right fleet to cope with today's increasing costs, it is also very important to have the right attitude and foresight to cope with tomor¬row's challenges.

"We are confident we can achieve this," she concluded.
