ABC launches freighter services at cargo-dedicated Rickenbacker airport


Russia-based AirBridgeCargo Airlines (ABC) has become the fifth freighter operator to provide scheduled services at Rickenbacker International Airport (LCK) in Columbus, Ohio.
The carrier joined a network of logistics service providers at the US cargo-dedicated airport, which is located within a one-day drive to nearly half of the US population and one-third of the Canadian population, reports London's Air Cargo News.
ABC's inaugural flight landed April 5, and weekly scheduled flights will continue on Thursdays, carrying freight inbound from the airline's global hub in Moscow and returning to Moscow through Liege, Belgium. The carrier will employ its fleet of Boeing 747 freighters that provide up to 139 tonnes of capacity.
General director for ABC, Sergey Lazarev, said: "With a view to continue expansion of our footprint in the US, Columbus has been on the radar of our business interests for quite a while."
He added: "Rickenbacker's strengths, such as proximity to distribution centres of various companies, including the fashion and apparel industries; airport and ground handling infrastructure and facilities; and the existing network of partners in the Columbus Region, ensure we can provide our clients with reliable and efficient service."
ABC joins Cargolux, Cathay Pacific Cargo, Emirates SkyCargo and Etihad Cargo as freight carriers that operate up to 15 weekly international flights at LCK.
