Etihad expands passenger freighter coverage


Etihad Cargo is expanding its operations using passenger aircraft to more destinations in Asia, Europe and Australia.

Five additional routes are now using Etihad Airways planes to increase the flow of essential supplies into the UAE and provide further connectivity between major markets.

Using belly-hold capacity on a mix of Boeing 777 and 787 aircraft, the new services will operate between Abu Dhabi and Melbourne, Chennai, Kerala, Karachi, and Amsterdam.

Etihad’s passenger freighters are already running scheduled cargo-only flights to Seoul, Beijing, Bangkok, Singapore, Manila, Jakarta, Mumbai, Delhi, Bangalore and Riyadh.

The new routes will further ensure continuity of fresh imports to the UAE including meat, fish and seafood, fruits, and vegetables, in addition to pharmaceuticals and medical supplies.
