AirBridgeCargo Airlines, part of Volga-Dnepr Group, entered the scheduled cargo market in 2004 when the first AirBridgeCargo branded Boeing 747 made its inaugural commercial flight on the 23rd of April. This milestone for the Group was the realization of two years or preliminary work to build the airline’s fleet, network, management and personnel under its Russian Scheduled Cargo Operation Development Strategy.
Today, AirBridgeCargo is Russia’s largest carrier in the international scheduled cargo market. It operates Boeing 747 all-cargo flights via Russian cargo hub in Moscow, which provide its customers a significant reduction in transit times and improved connectivity for the airlines network. ABC is the first Russian airline to operate Boeing 747s. The average fleet age is about 4 years. The airline is available for transporting any type of cargo, including shipments requiring special handling or a temperature-controlled environment.
