The airline, part of Volga-Dnepr Group, is also developing its current services to Chicago, introducing direct flights from Frankfurt. The new routes are part of AirBridgeCargo’s new summer schedule and started on March 31, 2014.

Denis Ilin, Executive President of AirBridgeCargo Airlines, says: “Chicago has been a very successful route for us since we commenced services on the route in 2012 and the extra B747F flight a week from O’Hare International Airport will provide welcome additional capacity for our customers. Expanding services in the US market is a logical step in the airline’s development and means we can increase our ability to offer fast and efficient freight deliveries for customers doing business in North America, Europe, Asia and Russia.”

ABC started performing flights to/from Chicago in 2012 thus becoming a truly worldwide airline with global coverage. Since then the airline has seen strong demand on this destination, especially in oil&gas industry which export has grown by 6 percent. ABC’s overall cargo tonnage to/from the North Americas has grown by 12 percent and 4 percent respectively.

The USA has always been on ABC strategic radar screen and new Dallas/Fort Worth route as well as increased frequencies to/from Chicago will reinforce ABC’s position as a strong player on the global cargo market.
