AirBridge Cargo Adds Third Weekly Freighter Flight to Milan

Russian scheduled freight carrier AirBridgeCargo Airlines is introducing a new Tuesday rotation on its existing route linking Malpensa Airport in the Italian city of Milan to its hub at Moscow’s Sheremetyevo Airport in the Russian capital.  The new flight will complement the existing Thursday and Sunday services and has been introduced to support the strong demand for the transport of goods between Europe and Asia.

“Milan is a very important and successful route for us...we expect cargo flows from Asia to Milan through our Sheremetyevo hub to increase, and we are equally confident in the market from Milan, which is being stimulated by the emerging positive trends in the Chinese and European economies.”

The carrier, part of the Volga-Dnepr Group, has been serving Milan since 2009 and will offer connection opportunities via Moscow to a number of key Asian markets, including the mainland Chinese cities of Beijing, Chengdu, Shanghai and Zhengzhou, as well as Hong Kong, Seoul and Tokyo.

“Milan is a very important and successful route for us and through close communication with our customers and constant monitoring of demand levels and trends in the market, we have introduced a third weekly frequency as a strategic step to increase our footprint in the European market and to meet the level of capacity our customers need from us,” said Tatyana Arslanova, executive president, AirBridgeCargo.

“We expect cargo flows from Asia to Milan through our Sheremetyevo hub to increase, and we are equally confident in the market from Milan, which is being stimulated by the emerging positive trends in the Chinese and European economies.” she added.
