SAUDIA Cargo has announced that it is to add a new weekly freighter from Hong Kong - in response to customer demand.
Saudia Cargo will now operate eight freighters per week from Hong Kong using B747 freighter aircraft.
The new service will run every Sunday night, taking the weekly capacity up to 800 tons.
Vikram Vohra, regional sales director Far East at Saudia Cargo, says: “We closely engage with our clients on market developments and their requirements.
“Considering their requests for greater capacity into the Middle East, Africa and Saudi Arabia, we are pleased to offer this additional service.
“The timing of this launch also coincides with the traditional strengthening of export demand from the Far East as we enter Q4."
The new frequency is scheduled to take effect from 3 September.
