AirBridgeCargo Airlines started operating cargo flights between Moscow, Helsinki and Frankfurt on Monday 26 January 2015. The route also brings the Boeing 747-800 to Helsinki Airport. It is the largest aircraft type that is regularly used in Finnish airspace.

The route is operated every Monday and Friday by Boeing 747-400 and 747-800 aircraft. The flights will operate from Moscow’s Sheremetyevo airport to Helsinki Airport, returning to Moscow via Frankfurt.

Helsinki Airport will offer even more connection opportunities for AirBridgeAirlines' (ABC) customers, providing smooth, reliable and fast services from Asia to Helsinki and back again within 48 hours.

- In 2014 we have been able to grow our business while maintaining a strong performance for our customers. Over the course of the year, we successfully increased our tonnage from North America and Asia to Europe by providing our customers with the capacity and routes their businesses needed. This new service from and to Helsinki will allow us to support the import and export flows which require direct Helsinki service, said Robert van de Weg, ABC’s Senior Vice President, Sales & Marketing.

AirBridgeCargo Airlines, part of Volga-Dnepr Group, is Russia’s largest carrier in the international scheduled cargo market. It is also one of the world's fastest growing international cargo airlines.
