AirBridgeCargo extends contract with FCS

AirBridgeCargo Airlines has renewed its cargo handling contract with Frankfurt Cargo Services (FCS), extending the partnership that started in 2008.

FCS, a subsidiary of Worldwide Flight Services, services up to 15 Boeing 747 flights a week that ABC operates from Frankfurt to its hubs at Moscow’s Domodedovo and Sheremetyevo airports.

Located in Cargo City South at Frankfurt Airport, ABC benefits from FCS having a direct connection between the airside apron and the landside cargo handling operation.

FCS also has GDP and IATA CEIV Pharma certification for handling temperature-sensitive pharmaceutical products.

Diana Schoeneich, Senior Director European Region at AirBridgeCargo says: “Frankfurt is one of the most important airports in AirBridgeCargo’s intercontinental route network. Thanks to our reliable and close cooperation with Frankfurt Cargo Services, we offer our customers quick and easy access to key cargo markets globally, including for our specialist products.”

Claus Wagner, Managing Director of Frankfurt Cargo Services says: “In our 13 years of partnership so far, AirBridgeCargo and FCS have both significantly expanded our cargo operations in Frankfurt, and we have worked closely together to overcome major challenges, including, of course, the coronavirus crisis and its impact on global supply chains.”
