AirBridgeCargo Adds Third Weekly B747 Freighter to Singapore
To satisfy growing customer demands, AirBridgeCargo Airlines is increasing its support of the Singapore market with the addition of a third weekly Boeing 747 freighter operation.
The new Friday frequency will offer onward connections to Hong Kong and to points across ABC’s global route network. The airline launched twice-weekly services to and from Singapore in September 2015 with flights every Thursday and Sunday.
Robert van de Weg, ABC’s Senior Vice President, Sales & Marketing, said: “Since the very start of our services, we have witnessed strong demand from our customers on routes to and from Singapore, more than 1,200 tonnes of cargo monthly. We particularly see rising demand for ABC’s dedicated cargo services to Singapore from Europe and the USA.”
Mr Lim Ching Kiat, Changi Airport Group’s Senior Vice-President for Market Development, said: “Following the launch of AirBridgeCargo’s inaugural freighter service at Changi Airport last year, we are delighted to welcome the airline’s third weekly service after six months of successful operations. This growth in capacity will provide more cargo options between Singapore and Russia, as well as beyond to Europe and the United States. Going forward, we will continue to work with AirBridgeCargo to pursue growth opportunities at Changi.”
