The aircraft will make its first commercial flight on the airline’s Chicago (USA) – Amsterdam (The Netherlands) – Moscow/Sheremetyevo (Russia) route, and will then be used on ABC’s existing route network linking Europe, Asia and the USA via AirBridgeCargo’s hub in Moscow.
With delivery of the fourth new generation Boeing 747-8F AirBridgeCargo is continuing to follow its long-term fleet modernization strategy to further improve the quality of its product. The new 747-8F is quieter and offers lower fuel consumption as well as significantly reduced CO2 emissions.
“Operating a modern, efficient and ecologically friendly fleet plays a significant role in increasing the quality of the product we offer to our customers. It also gives AirBridgeCargo Airlines a competitive edge which will help us achieve stable and sustainable development and maintain our position on the market,” said Denis Ilin, the airline’s Executive President.
AirBridgeCargo’s current fleet consists of 12 Boeing 747 aircraft (five Boeing 747-400ERF, three Boeing 747-400F and four Boeing 747-8F).
