Effective April, the carrier is operating a weekly freighter flight, aiming to meet the growing demand for cargo operations & stimulate trade movement to/from the Asian continent, in addition to the already operating 5 weekly flights to Dhaka & the 7 weekly flights to Hong Kong.
Omar Hariri, CEO of Saudia Cargo said: “This operation reflects the company’s policy aiming to enhance and increase trade activities between the Kingdom & both countries.”
Hariri added: “Saudia Cargo will mobilize its logistical capabilities to and from both destinations, adding an extra weekly freighter flight to Guangzhou operated by a Boeing 777F aircraft & another to Mumbai, operated by a Boeing 747-400F, offering estimated 100 tonnes of capacity to each destination in addition to the belly-capacity on board Saudia passenger flights.”
