Etihad Cargo expands Spanish network with Barcelona bellyhold flights

Etihad has expanded its cargo capacity operating in the Spanish market as it looks to cater for the fashion, perishable, pharma and automotive markets in the country.
In late November, the airline added a five-times-per week Airbus A330 service with 16 tons of bellyhold capacity.
This operates alongside its daily Beoing 787 service to Madrid. In addition, the airline offers trucking services to gateways across Europe.
The Barcelona service will increase to a daily operation at the end of March next year.
Key segments for Etihad Cargo in Spain are fashion, perishable goods, pharma and automotive.
Abdulla Mohamed Shadid, Etihad Airways managing director cargo and logistics, said: “Spain is an important global trade market with high demand for both import and export capabilities to key destinations across the Middle East and Asia.
"Expanding our capacity into the market with the addition of services to Barcelona enhances our network with even greater focus on key global trade routes."
