AirBridgeCargo adds Budapest freighter call

AirBridgeCargo (ABC) Airlines has added a twice-weekly call at Budapest airport to its schedule as it looks to continue growing Asia-Europe volumes.
The new service will deploy Boeing 747 freighters and will operate on Tuesdays and Saturdays offering 139 tons of capacity on each flight.
The service will cover the catchment area of Budapest, as well as Central and Eastern Europe.
Sergey Lazarev, general director, AirBridgeCargo said: "Budapest has been expanding at a fast clip, upgrading its facilities, infrastructure, and solutions for freighter carriers and following a cargo-friendly strategy.
"Its advantageous central location in Europe makes Budapest Airport a perfect location for carriers operating between Asia and Europe. On top of this, we foresee an upsurge of e-commerce traffic with swelling demand for internet purchases among European consumers."
Budapest Airport chief executive Jost Lammers added: "Through ABC’s network of more than 30 destinations, Hungarian companies producing electronic, automotive, pharmaceutical and other high quality products could reach out to their customers around the world through Moscow.
"From next year on our cargo partners in Budapest can operate from our brand new Cargo City which will provide 20,000 square meters of warehouse and office space, including for AirBridgeCargo staff."
