B747 freighters for Saudia Cargo and ASL Belgium
Saudia Cargo has added another Boeing B747-400F to its fleet of six full-freighters (three B747Fs and four B777Fs). The aircraft started services earlier this month, once it had all the necessary licences, flight schedules and enhancements in place.
CEO Omar Hariri said that "adding these freighters has substantially increased our cargo capacities, helping us to provide the kingdom with more logistics support for urgently-needed medical cargo."
In related news, ASL Airlines Belgium has also taken delivery of a Boeing B747-400F, increasing its B747 freighter fleet to three (of more than 30 aircraft in total). (ah)
