ABC TRANSPORTS SATELLITE
EQUIPMENT FROM FRANCE TO RUSSIA
On August 2nd, AirBridgeCargo Airlines (ABC) transported 16-tonnes of satellite equipment on one of its Boeing 747-400 freighters from Toulouse in France to Krasnoyarsk (Russia). The shipment was loaded onto the pallet and smoothly transported to its destination by the highly professional personnel of ABC.
AirBridgeCargo Airlines (ABC) regularly handles high value cargo for aerospace clients. In the first half of 2013, ABC
carried over 1,000 tonnes of aerospace shipments including other space equipment, aircraft components, helicopter spares and engines.
Denis Ilin, Executive President of ABC, said: “We have established a proven track record for the movement of highly sensitive and valuable aerospace cargoes and are now seen as a reliable transportation partner by clients in the industry. Our sister airline, Volga-Dnepr Airlines works with leading aerospace customers for the delivery of outsize and heavyweight shipments and as part of our ‘cargo supermarket’ service, ABC provides a cost-efficient option for cargoes where B-747 transportation is the most viable solution.”
ABC says it is also seeing the results of its focus on the product quality provided for its customers in terms of regularity and punctuality, and more and more customers now recognise ABC as a reliable service provider.
“In the current market conditions, adherence to published schedules and on-time performance are more important than ever and they have a great impact on the choices customers make and the further development of companies. Like all airlines, we are aware of the need to be constantly improving our service levels to be competitive in the market and in support of this, we have looked at our fleet optimisation programme, how we manage our route network and our management processes to find ways to enhance our service quality. This is already showing positive results and we will be increasing our efforts to continue this upward trend,” Denis Ilin added.
