As of February 14, AirBridgeCargo Airlines (ABC) has started new twice-weekly Boeing 747 freighter services to Africa.
AirBridgeCargo’s new flights will operate every Thursday and Sunday under an ACMI contract with CargoLogicAir (CLA) using CLA’s Air Operator Certificate (AOC) and flight numbers. The routing will start ex London Stansted (STN) via Frankfurt (FRA) to Libreville (LBV) and onto Johannesburg (JNB), returning to Stansted via Nairobi (NB).
These new destinations will provide ABC’s customers with an even greater choice of delivery options while guaranteeing the high level of service quality delivered by ABC across its global network. The flight schedule allows for quick and easy connections with ABC’s existing network at its regional European gateway at Frankfurt Airport. This latest network expansion opens up seamless connections to major markets in Africa for ABC’s customers in North America, the Far East and Southeast Asia.
“The introduction of services to Africa is a big step for our company. For the last couple of years AirBridgeCargo has reached the ‘high-water mark’ of its organic growth model with its focus on its fleet, network expansion and consistently improving the quality of its customer service. We are now continuing our development by expanding into other parts of the world, including by means of partnership with other airlines. New points of destination and origin in Africa will provide our customers with direct service via ABC’s stations in Europe, Asia and the U.S. We are delighted to be working with CargoLogicAir as our ACMI partner to create these new opportunities for our clients,” said Robert van de Weg, AirBridgeCargo Airlines’ Senior Vice-President for Sales & Marketing.
