Record coolbox tally for ABC flight

[ April 5, 2018   //   ]

Russian-owned airfreight operator AirBridgeCargo Airlines recently carried a record 19 va-Q-tainers on a single flight, delivering products for a biotech customer.

The 19 high-performance passive containers, weighing around 15 tonnes in total, were delivered to Frankfurt ready to ‘load and go’ onboard one of AirBridgeCargo’s Boeing 747-8F services to Moscow Sheremetyevo airport. ABC’s pharma team monitored each step of the process, including guaranteeing the exact temperature range required.

AirBridgeCargo says that volumes on its abc Pharma service rose 80% year-on-year in the first quarter of 2018.
