AirBrigdeCargo Airlines reports growth for first eight months of 2013

By: | at 01:11 PM | Channel(s): Air Cargo  

In August, the airline carried 30,538 tons of cargo, 5% up on the same month last year. Average load factors were also higher, up 6% to 73%.

Positive growth results, especially in the low summer season, were due to two key factors: the continued support of AirBridgeCargo’s loyal partners, as well as the airline’s continued and focused work on increasing its operating performance indicator to deliver further increases in the quality of its air cargo transportation product.

AirBridgeCargo’s punctuality indicator averaged 80% over the last eight months, while the regularity of services was 97%. These results are on a par with the performance levels of the world’s leading airlines.

As part of implementing the Cargo2000 quality philosophy in its operations, work to increase ABC’s ‘delivered as promised’ (DAP) performance is also showing a positive outcome. Overall, DAP averaged 75% for the month. On key destinations for customers (Frankfurt- Beijing, Amsterdam- Moscow, Chicago- Moscow, Shanghai- Frankfurt, Shanghai- Milan, Shanghai-Moscow) the airline’s DAP indicator was over 85% and reached almost 100% on some routes.

Operating a modern and efficient fleet of Boeing 747 freighters is also a part of AirBridgeCargo’s commitment to continually improve the quality of the product offered to its international customers.
