AirBridgeCargo (ABC) is expanding its footprint in Asia with the introduction of a Dhaka B747F flight to cater for growth in garment and apparel exports from Bangladesh.The Russian freighter operator will offer two flights per week to the capital of Bangladesh, which becomes the 14th destination in ABC’s Asian network. The flight will be operated as a stop on ABC’s Shanghai, China service and will give customers a “vast choice of international connections over its Moscow cargo hub”.
Sergey Lazarev, General Director, ABC, said, “We have been reviewing the possibility of Bangladesh coverage for the last couple of years. The country’s emerging volumes tipped over 25 per cent growth last year as the number of manufacturers based in this country increased.”
ABC has expanded its Asian network over recent years. In 2018, it added Ho Chi Minh and Shenzhen and offered its special abc e-com, abc valuable and abc general products to meet the demand for hi-tech, e-commerce and garments goods.
It has also reinforced its abc pharma product through an MoU with Shanghai cargo handler PACTL, which was signed in June 2018, to boost time and temperature-sensitive products and increase the airline’s overall quality performance.
