ABC extends its North America network to LA

Twice-weekly flights to Los Angeles have been added to AirBridgeCargo (ABC) Airlines North America freighter operations, connecting the U.S. west coast with its global network.  The carrier already serves Chicago and Dallas/Fort Worth.

ABC began operations to the North American market in 2011 and intensive development has enabled the company to achieve annual trans-Atlantic volumes in excess of 55,000 tons.

“Launching Los Angeles flights is part of our ongoing commitment to develop our presence in the U.S. market and follows strong customer interest in both China and the United States,” explained Robert van de Weg, ABC’s Senior Vice President, Sales & Marketing.

“The Los Angeles service will complement our global network and this will benefit customers that have relied on our services for more than 10 years now.  Thanks to the highly valued support of our clients, ABC has become one of the world’s fastest growing international cargo airlines with an average growth rate of 11% over the last five years.”

Hendrik Falk, ABC’s Vice President North and South America, added: “The United States represents one of the main strategic markets in the company’s further development.  Since the company’s U.S. launch, AirBridgeCargo has successfully opened sales offices in every major gateway in the country, including Chicago, Dallas, Houston and New York.

“In 2014, ABC increased its weekly Boeing 747 freighter services through Chicago to seven frequencies per week and opened a second route to Dallas/Fort Worth.  With the start of our summer 2015 schedule, we have increased this number to nine and thus provided our customers with even more delivery solutions to Europe, Russia and beyond.”
