Etihad Cargo to enhance China operations
Etihad Cargo, part of the United Arab Emirates' national airline Etihad Airways based in Abu Dhabi, will enhance its Chinese cargo services later this month when it increases bellyhold cargo capacity between Abu Dhabi and Chengdu.
Effective 30 March, cargo capacity to and from Chengdu will rise by 40% to 930 t per month, a result of the current five times a week Airbus A330 passenger service between Abu Dhabi and Chengdu switching to a daily operation.
In addition to this bellyhold increase, the carrier will continue to deploy substantial maindeck freighter capabilities to Shanghai (seven per week), Hong Kong (six per week), Beijing (two per week), and Guangzhou (two per week). These services will operate using a mix of A330F (in photo), B777F and B747F aircraft.
