AirBridgeCargo regains all its cargo slots at Amsterdam Schiphol airport


AirBridgeCargo (ABC) has reached an agreement with Dutch airline KLM that will give ABC back its entire tranche of freighter slots at Amsterdam's Schiphol Airport (AMS) and enable the Russian airline to re-establish its operations to Schiphol in the Netherlands.
The agreement comes in the wake of slot restrictions at Schiphol, which meant that freighter operators faced a potential loss of up to 20 per cent of their slots. In response, Moscow threatened to withdraw overfly rights for Netherlands-registered aircraft, including those for KLM, reported STAT Times.
"As a result of two-days of negotiations, KLM and ABC have reached an agreement, which will allow ABC to fully re-establish its operations to AMS as per its request. The parties involved are to elaborate certain operational details, but in general the agreement in principle has been reached," a statement from ABC was cited as saying.
ABC said that it expects to recommence its operations at Schiphol airport in the coming weeks, adding that both airlines will continue cooperation so as to prevent such situations arising in future.
Following the slot restriction in Schiphol, ABC announced in early October that it will gradually raise its cargo capacity up to 12 flights per week using its fleet of Boeing 747 freighters to Liege. The addition of Liege Airport brings ABC's total number of European destinations to 13.
