AirBridgeCargo adds new weekly freighter service from US to Middle East

AirBridgeCargo Airlines (ABC) will today introduce a new weekly US-Europe-Middle East-Russia service aimed to cater for the oil and gas industries.
The service will set off from Houston on Monday evenings before heading to Chicago, Luxembourg and then onto Abu Dhabi before returning via Moscow’s Sheremetyevo airport.
ABC vice president North and South America Hendrik Falk said: “The Introduction of a Houston flight is something that has been on our agenda for quite some time as we have been expanding our presence in the US.
“We can now provide a direct connection from the Houston area to key markets in Russia and the Middle East.
“We expect that the oil and gas industry, in particular, will benefit from this new service and naturally our sales force will be developing this destination for other commodities too.”
The airline said that from Luxembourg, the service would connect with its trucking services across the continent, while from Abu Dhabi trucking services will offer connections to Dubai DXB and DWC.
