AirBridgeCargo launches twice-weekly flights to Los Angeles

AirBridgeCargo Airlines, part of the cargo airline Volga-Dnepr Group, has added twice-weekly flights to Los Angeles, US, to its North America freighter operations, connecting the US west coast with its global network.

AirBridgeCargo Airlines began air freight operations to the North American market in 2011 and serves Chicago and Dallas/Fort Worth. The company handles annual volumes across the Atlantic of over 55,000 tons.

“Launching Los Angeles flights is part of our ongoing commitment to develop our presence in the US market and follows strong customer interest in both China and the US. The Los Angeles service will complement our global network and this will benefit customers that have relied on our services for more than 10 years now,” said Robert van de Weg, AirBridgeCargo’s Senior Vice President, Sales & Marketing.

“The US represents one of the main strategic markets in the company’s further development. Since the company’s US launch, AirBridgeCargo has successfully opened sales offices in every major gateway in the country, including Chicago, Dallas, Houston and New York. We are confident that our expectations for the development of the west coast market will be fully realized and that our team’s hard work, together with our customers’ support, will prove to be a great success for us both,” said Hendrik Falk, AirBridgeCargo’s Vice President North and South America.
