AirBridgeCargo Airlines adds Dhaka to its international network

Posted 25 February 2019 · Add Comment

AirBridgeCargo Airlines is ramping up its footprint in Asia with the introduction of Dhaka to its international network.

 

The company will offer customers twice-weekly frequencies to the capital of Bangladesh to accommodate the country’s emerging export flows, which have seen westbound volumes grow robustly in recent years

Dhaka becomes the 14th destination in ABC’s Asian network and extends the airline’s ability to guarantee fast and seamless cargo deliveries to Europe, Russia, and the USA. The flight will be operated in conjunction with AirBridgeCargo’s Shanghai, China, service and will give customers a vast choice of international connections over its Moscow cargo hub.

“We have been reviewing the possibility of Bangladesh coverage for the last couple of years. The country’s emerging volumes tipped over 25% growth last year as the number of manufacturers based in this country increased. This fact makes us feel confident that our operations will be appreciated by customers, especially by those with garments and apparel commodities, which constitute the major part of traffic from Bangladesh,” highlighted Sergey Lazarev, general director of AirBridgeCargo Airlines.

He added: “With the lion’s share of cargo being Europe and USA bound, we will be able to leverage these flows, offering our customers solutions for various types of freight, including those with special handling requirements – including temperature-sensitive products, oversized and heavy shipments, live animals, e-commerce and others. Our flights will also guarantee B747F capacity for import flows to support Bangladeshi industries. On top of this, we will make sure that the quality of our service in Bangladesh is on a par with the rest of our global network.”
