AirBridgeCargo’s first B777 freighter starts cargo services
Russia’s cargo airline AirBridgeCargo, which is the part of Volga-Dnepr Group, starts cargo carriage services with its first Boeing 777 freighter.
On December 16, 2020, the airline group said the new B777 freighter would be deployed on trans-Siberian operations. Its first flight operated between Seoul-Moscow.
“It is the largest twin-engine freighter with up to 106 tons of payload which complements ABC’s already extensive fleet of Boeing 747Fs and gives more flexibility in terms of special and general cargo transportation,” according to the statement.
“Timely delivery of sophisticated medical equipment stays one of the top tasks during these difficult times. Time-wise, airfreight is the most preferred transportation mode, which, coupled with safety and security, is very important for us,” Natalia Budrova, Logistics Leader Russia & CIS, GE Healthcare added.
The airline’s decision to add extra air cargo capacity came after the group grounded its fleet of Antonov An-124 aircraft on safety grounds.
