Under the agreement, Etihad Cargo will supply capacity on one of its weekly freighter services from Abu Dhabi to Frankfurt as well as access to its cargo network to the Middle East, Africa and Central Asia.
Singapore Airlines Cargo will provide capacity on its freighter services to LHR operated via Abu Dhabi.

David Kerr, vice-president, cargo, Etihad Airways, states: “This year we have strengthened our cargo operations by expanding the freighter fleet, launching new destinations, increasing frequencies and working with partner carriers, such as Singapore Airlines Cargo.”
Tan Tiow Kor, senior vice-president, sales and marketing at Singapore Airlines Cargo, adds: “We are very pleased with this capacity exchange with Etihad Cargo. It will offer customers of both airlines more choice of flights to ship their cargo and improve access to the Middle East, Africa, Central Asia and Germany.”
