Saudia Cargo to expand freighter operations
Saudia Cargo is increasing its belly and freighter capacity on a number of routes across its global network. In its scheduled freighter service network, the cargo airline will add one additional flight per week from Guangzhou (China) to Brussels (Belgium), bringing the total number of weekly flights to three. The Saudi Arabian carrier will also provide one additional flight per week from Dhaka (Bangladesh) to Brussels, bringing the total number of weekly flights to five. Finally, Saudia will operate two additional flights per week from Nairobi (Kenya) to Amsterdam (Netherlands), resulting in a daily service.
The revised schedule will also see the introduction of a new European destination as the airline prepares to begin its first ever scheduled freighter services from the UK to KSA, commencing with two flights per week from Manston. Overall capacity from Europe will grow by five frequencies to 22 weekly freighter flights to KSA from the airline's hubs in Brussels, Amsterdam, Frankfurt (Germany), Milan Malpensa (Italy) and Manston.
