AirBridgeCargo extends Frankfurt partnership

AirBridgeCargo Airlines (ABC) has renewed its cargo handling contract at Frankfurt Airport with Frankfurt Cargo Services (FCS), a subsidiary of Worldwide Flight Services. FCS has served AirBridgeCargo since 2008.

ABC currently operates up to 15 Boeing 747 freighter flights a week from Frankfurt to its hubs at Moscow’s Domodedovo and Sheremetyevo airports, connecting customers to more than 30 cargo destinations in Europe, Asia and North America.

FCS’ ability to handle temperature-sensitive pharmaceutical products was one of the reasons for AirBridgeCargo’s decision to extend the partnership. With GDP (Good Distribution Practice) and IATA CEIV Pharma certifications, FCS’ Frankfurt cargo operation is fully compliant with the cargo handling requirements of both airlines and pharmaceutical companies.

Diana Schöneich, senior director, European region at ABC, said: “Frankfurt is one of the most important airports in AirBridgeCargo’s intercontinental route network. Thanks to our close cooperation with Frankfurt Cargo Services, we can offer customers quick and easy access to key cargo markets globally, including for our specialist products.

“Solutions such as FCS’ mobile SuperBox refrigeration unit, for example, support our growing pharmaceutical volumes and means we can respond optimally to our customers’ requirements as well as trends in the market.”
