New joint cargo plans at Abu Dhabi airport
Abu Dhabi Airports and Etihad Cargo, the cargo and logistics services arm of the Etihad Aviation Group, have announced a major project to enhance Abu Dhabi International Airport (AUH) into a state-of-the-art global air cargo centre of excellence.
Both partners will implement a multi-phased cargo infrastructure development strategy, starting with the imminent upgrade of Etihad’s existing air cargo terminal facilities on the Southside airport perimeters.
The programme will culminate with the inauguration of Etihad Cargo’s future home, a new air cargo terminal in the East Midfield section of the airport, an area designated by Abu Dhabi Airports for future integrated cargo, logistics and integrator activities. The first phase begins immediately and is due for completion in phases until the end of Q3/2020. (ah)
