Saudia Cargo says it with Kenyan flowers

SAUDIA Cargo is running four additional B747 freighter flights from Nairobi to Amsterdam this month, to meet the high demand of flower exports during the St Valentine’s peak period.
The extra frequencies will be supplementary to the carrier’s already existing six weekly scheduled B747F frequencies on this prime sector, thereby providing a massive consolidated capacity of 2,800 tonnes for Kenyan flower traffic into Europe over the month.
“Over the last year Saudia Cargo has significantly increased its scheduled capacity in the Kenyan export market by 40 per cent,” comments Ken Mbogo, regional sales director for Africa at Saudia Cargo.
“The deployment of these extra frequencies is a part of our continued strategic growth plan and a further testament of our long term commitment to the Kenyan floricultural industry,” he adds.
