As Russia’s largest international cargo airline and an acknowledged leader in the Russian aviation market, AirBridgeCargo’s decision to develop its hub at Moscow’s Sheremetyevo Airport was an important strategic step in its plan to become a network carrier. After successful launch of hub in Sheremetyevo following its customers’ needs and significant growth of volumes AirBridgeCargo decided to introduce hub operations in Domodedovo airport which was done in the middle of 2010.

At the moment ABC is ready to offer its customers a series of advantages via its hub operation, including:

• Greater choice of flights to markets served by ABC’s fleet plus greater connectivity to each origin and destination point in the ABC network.

• Improved service – our hub is not just a base airport, it is an on-line station and gateway that incorporates an operational centre and customer service centre available 24/7 that monitors all flight and ground movements.

• Enhanced flexibility to further develop the ABC route network worldwide.

For customers with cargo destined for Russia, shipments can be delivered to any of four warehouses at Sheremetyevo Airport:

• “Sheremet’yevo cargo”

• “Rusport”

• “Airport Moskau”

• “DHL (GOSNIIGA)”.

In Domodedovo airport all the shipments are delivered to warehouse “Domodedovo Cargo”.

Each of the above mentioned warehouses is equipped with up-to-date facilities for accepting cargo with special handling requirements, such as perishables, live animals, outsized, etc.

ABC’s trucking partners provide the airline’s customers with further delivery options from Sheremetyevo Airport to more than 25 destinations in Russia beyond Moscow. For customers with international cargo, ABC offers bonded transit. ABC customers can access the latest status information on their shipment at any time via our Russian helpdesk, available 24/7 at Moscow Sheremetyevo and Domodedovo Airports or use our on-line tracking service at www.airbridgecargo.com.

AirBridgeCargo places the greatest importance on the quality of handling, as well as to the security of cargo being transported through the airline’s Moscow hubs. ABC’s specialists, working in the operations center at both airports, guarantee that all activities involved in the handling and carriage of your cargo, including those by third parties, are performed in line with international regulations.
