Fraport Cargo Services (FCS), a wholly-owned subsidiary of Fraport AG Frankfurt Airport Services Worldwide, recently announced the winners among its airline customers at Frankfurt Airport (FRA) for the ‘Best Cargo Performer 2009’ award.
AirBridgeCargo Airlines took first place in the category ‘Most Volume in 2009’, ahead of Cathay Pacific and Emirates. Eleven-month tonnage for AirBridgeCargo totaled 31,040 metric tons ’ 30 per cent higher year-on-year.
The ‘Best Cargo Performer’ reception is held annually by FCS with all prize winners receiving the traditional ‘Hessiche Bembel,’ a pottery jug for the famous and refreshing Hessian apple wine drink.
A well-deserved award came as acknowledgement of hard work performed by the Frankfurt team during a year that was indeed very challenging for the entire industry.
‘We would like to thank the Frankfurt team for their contribution to our company’s overall success. The significant and stable increase in cargo volume confirms once again that we have the right strategy and the right people at the right places,’ pointed out AirBridgeCargo’s senior executive vice president of sales Wolfgang Meier.
