Starting from Oct. 1, ABC will increase its scheduled flights from Moscow to Tokyo’s Narita Airport and on the onward connection to Seoul, Korea, to three services a week. ABC’s flights to Tokyo and Seoul’s Incheon International Airport will operate every Wednesday, Thursday and Saturday.
The extra frequencies reflect ABC’s growth in the Asia Pacific region and extend its commitment to the Japanese and Korean air cargo and manufacturing markets, which began in 2007 and 2010, respectively.
The new services will help ABC’s customers to meet increased consumer demand, especially in the automotive sector. Over the last eight months, ABC’s tonnage from Japan and Korea has grown by 40 percent. The highest level of growth has been seen on AirBridgeCargo’s routes to Europe and Russia, where volumes rose 20 percent and 46 percent, respectively, over this period. Overall, ABC transported 6,810 tonnes of cargo from Japan and Korea in the eight months to the end of August.
