New Boost to Stansted’s Cargo Network

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 freight carrier Transaero.
The new service not only provides a direct link to Moscow but also access to
multiple connections across Transaero’s network which the airline says has been specifically developed to cater for increased demand from freight forwarders.
Conan Busby, the Manchester Airport Group’s (MAG’s) Cargo Business Development Manager said: “We are delighted Transaero have chosen London Stansted as their preferred UK airport for developing their UK cargo services.  This is the first new cargo service to London Stansted since the recent acquisition by MAG, and we are certain it will not be the last.
“Transaero’s arrival clearly demonstrates the attractiveness of London
Stansted as a UK cargo hub and is a perfect example of why MAG 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 [of England] right now.
“MAG and the teams at Stansted are looking forward to developing a close working relationship with Transaero and will be helping in every way to ensure their new cargo service to the UK is as successful as possible.”
