AirBridgeCargo has deployed its first Boeing 777 freighter, the largest twin-engine cargo plane, servicing the Trans-Siberian route with a payload of 106 tonnes.
“2020 has put the air cargo at the front,” mentioned Igor Borisov, Director of Domodedovo airport, delivering much-needed medical cargo to combat COVID-19 spread.
“We are positive that the new freighter type within AirBridgeCargo’s fleet will open new opportunities for other carriers operating to/from Domodedovo airport,” he added.
“Timely delivery of sophisticated medical equipment stays one of the top tasks during these difficult times. Time-wise, airfreight is the most preferred transportation mode, which, coupled with safety and security, is very important for us,” highlighted customer Natalia Butrova, logistics leader for Russia & CIS at GE Healthcare.
Tatyana Arslanova, CEO of Volga-Dnepr Group, said: “We would like to thank our personnel and specialists, partners and customers for this great milestone at the turn of 2021 when airfreight is in high demand, especially for healthcare, e-commerce and essential cargoes transportation.”
The first commercial flight of ABC’s maiden 777F flew from Seoul to Domodedovo, met by top guests from Volga-Dnepr Group, Boeing Corporation and GE Healthcare, who took a tour around the new plane and watch offloading of medical equipment.
