Saudia Cargo adds extra freighter services

By Rachelle Harry

Saudia Airlines Cargo Company (also known as Saudia Cargo) has announced that it is operating its cargo flights as usual, despite having suspended its passenger services as a result of low demand caused by the coronavirus.

The carrier said that it is operating scheduled and additional cargo flights to Dubai and European hubs to ensure that essential cargo — such as medical equipment and food — reaches its destination.

“All cargo flights to Europe will continue through Frankfurt and Liège stations in addition to Dhaka station,” Saudia Cargo explained. “Work at these stations is run as scheduled in order to mitigate the impact of the imposed suspension aiming to prevent the spread of Coronavirus”.

Chief executive Omar bin Talal Harir added: “The Saudia Cargo staff work around the clock as part of the company’s national responsibility and regional role in enhancing logistics during these circumstances which the whole world is going through”.
