Etihad Cargo targets Vietnam

ETIHAD Cargo has begun freighter flights between Abu Dhabi and Hanoi, Vietnam.
The dedicated cargo service operates every Thursday and Sunday using an Airbus A330-200F, with a capacity of 60 tonnes.
Flights to Hanoi route via Mumbai, while the return service is direct to Abu Dhabi.
Situated along the Red River delta, Hanoi is the capital of Vietnam, the country’s second biggest city, a major trading centre, and also one of the fastest growing cities in the world.
Etihad Cargo expects the new service to carry raw materials, consumer goods and perishables to Hanoi, with large quantities of electronics and textiles destined for the Gulf region, Europe and Africa loaded for the return flight.
Kevin Knight, Etihad Airways’ Chief Strategy and Planning Officer, says Vietnam is an important market for Etihad Cargo.
“This new twice-weekly Hanoi freighter service will build on our existing daily bellyhold operations to Ho Chi Minh City further south.
“The service will allow us to capitalise on the strong import and export demand to and from Vietnam and the rest of south-east Asia, while providing our growing customer base with more choice for transporting goods around the world.”
