Etihad Cargo, the fast growing cargo division of United Arab Emirates flag carrier Etihad Airways, has updated its 2013 summer schedule to reflect a significant investment in capacity, a number of frequency increases, new freighter routings and destinations.
From June, Etihad Cargo’s freighter fleet of nine
aircraft will operate additional frequencies from
Abu Dhabi to Benghazi, Dhaka, Frankfurt, Guangzhou and Khartoum.
A new weekly route to
the Saudi capital, Riyadh, will also commence in June, complementing the
existing weekly freighter services in the Kingdom to Dammam.
Elsewhere in June, a
new weekly freighter routing will commence to Vienna, and a twice weekly
freighter operation to Singapore and Sydney will be added to network.
This brings the total
worldwide Etihad Cargo network to 89 destinations, eight of which are freighter
only (Benghazi, Eldoret, Guangzhou, Hong Kong, Houston, Kabul, Sharjah, Vienna).

Kevin Knight, Chief Strategy and Planning Officer at Etihad Airways, said: “Our cargo network continues to expand, and with
the addition of new main
deck operations to Riyadh, Sydney and Vienna we are significantly adding to the scale of our global operations
and linking many parts of the world via our Abu Dhabi hub.
Abu Dhabi’s geographic situation as a well-positioned cargo hub with Etihad
Cargo’s world-class products, services, and fleet, we look forward to working
closer with our customers and partners as we continue to drive their businesses
and deliver results.”
