Special cargoes boost airline’s results A


irBridgeCargo Airlines (ABC) said that it saw a 25 percent year-on-year increase in the volume of ‘special commodities’ handled


during 2018. Demand for the airline’s services for oversized


and heavy cargoes, marketed as abc XL, increased by more than 20 percent compared with 2017. The company expects this growth trajectory to


continue in terms of shipment volumes as it increases its focus on performance quality and customer satisfaction. Overall, total volumes carried in 2018 grew by

Shenzhen in China, Budapest in Hungary and Columbus in the USA. ABC’s general director Sergey Lazarev
