Breakbulk aviation firm AirBridgeCargo Airlines has expanded its Asia-Pacific network with the addition of a new twice-weekly service to Taipei, Taiwan.
The route will be flown by a Boeing 747 freighter, offering breakbulk capacity from Moscow Sheremetyevo airport every Wednesday and Saturday. The services returns via Hanoi in Vietnam, and will link Taipei with ABC destinations in the U.S., Middle East and Europe.
“Taipei is a mature and stable air cargo market generating volumes close to 500,000 tonnes per annum, so it is a major origin, destination and transit point for freight. This includes exports of electronic components, machinery, textiles as well as a diverse range of import cargoes,” said Sergey Lazarev, general director of ABC.
The firm also recently appointed Vince Ryan as vice president, North and South America. He is expected to continue growing ABC’s network in the Americas and brings 34-year experience in the cargo industry with Flying Tigers the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey, British Airways World Cargo, Cargo Development USA, and Global Freight Exchange.
ABC is a subsidiary of Russia’s Volga-Dnepr Group and provides project cargo services for the aerospace industry with a particular focus on shipments of satellites, helicopters, aircraft and parts.
