Sky Gates Cargo is expanding its freighter network with the addition of services from Moscow Zhukovsky International Airport (ZIA).
The airline plans to begin a three-time-per-week scheduled freighter service from ZIA to Frankfurt-Hahn, Baku and Zhengzhou utilising one of its B747-400Fs.
The move follows the opening of a new air cargo terminal at the airport that can handle “all kinds of cargo”.
Sky Gates also offers customs clearance and last mile delivery service within the Moscow region through its partners.
“Through modern technologies and online customs clearance proceedings we can offer a truly integrated product, be it through Moscow Sheremetyevo and now as well through Moscow Zhukovsky, covering a dedicated last mile delivery via ZIA,” said Alexander Khmelevskikh, the Sky Gates general director.
“The new base at Moscow Zhukovksy International Airport includes a 9,200 sq m modern cargo terminal with a temporary storage warehouse, customs infrastructure and storage areas for temperature-sensitive cargo and live animals. The apron with an area of 90,000 sq m will be able to serve four Boeing 747 type aircraft or six medium-sized aircraft.”
