[ July 11, 2013   //   ]


The latest addition to Stansted’s world-wide cargo network arrived this week with the launch of weekly flights between the UK’s third busiest cargo airport and Moscow by Russian carrier  has launched weekly Tupolev Tu204-100C flights between Stansted – the UK’s third busiest cargo airport – and Moscow. The new service also gives connections across Transaero’s wide-ranging network and has been specifically developed to cater for increased demand from freight forwarders.

Conan Busby, cargo business development manager at MAG, Stansted’s owners said it was the first new cargo service to London Stansted since the airport#s recent acquisition by MAG, “and we are certain it will not be the last.”

He added: “Transaero’s arrival clearly demonstrates the attractiveness of London Stansted as a UK cargo hub and is a perfect example of why M.A.G chose to invest in our new London gateway, the only London airport with spare capacity and world-class infrastructure already in place to meet demand and support growth in the South East right now.”
