Saudi Cargo’s Cirque du soleil freighter flights

Saudi Airlines Cargo recently transported 400 tons of equipment and supplies for the international event Cirque du soleil on four B747-400 freighter flights.
The equipment was flown from Zagreb, Croatia, to the Saudi capital, Riyadh, where the circus show is taking place from December 17-29.

Saudia Cargo’s chief executive, Omar Talal Hariri, said that the moment the company received the request from the client, "we exerted every possible effort, considering all measures to ensure the safe transportation of shipment on time.”
Hariri added, "Saudi Cargo is proud to be a part of this entertainment event, providing all its logistical capabilities, and always keen to extend cooperation and join efforts with all stakeholders to achieve the Kingdom’s Vision 2030.” Hariri concluded: “During the year, Saudia Cargo has contributed to many events, and festivals, due to its logistical capabilities in terms of its freighter fleet, charter services or ground handling services.” Saudia Cargo also recently carried the cars, spares, and the equipment of the FIA Formula E Championship that occurred in the 2018 Saudia Ad Diriyah E-Prix festival sponsored by Saudi Arabian Airlines.
