Russian cargo airline Sky Gates Cargo Airlines is launching new scheduled airfreight services to and from Moscow Zhukovsky International Airport (ZIA) in August 2020.
Already last year the airport introduced regular passenger services. This July a newly constructed state-of-the-art air cargo terminal opened as well, equipped with sophisticated warehouse technology and being able to handle all kinds of cargo. This terminal also offers a dedicated area for temperature-controlled cargo.
“This service is unique. Through modern technologies and online customs clearance proceedings we can offer a truly integrated product, be it through Moscow Sheremetyevo and now as well through Moscow Zhukovsky, covering a dedicated last mile delivery via ZIA,” said Alexander Khmelevskikh, general director, Sky Gates.
The new base at Moscow Zhukovksy International Airport includes a 9,200 square meters modern cargo terminal with a temporary storage warehouse, customs infrastructure and storage areas for temperature-sensitive cargo and live animals. The apron with an area of 90,000 square meters will be able to serve four Boeing 747 type aircraft or six medium sized aircraft.
