Etihad Cargo and Singapore Airlines Cargo to exchange capacity

ETIHAD CARGO and Singapore Airlines Cargo are to exchange confirmed cargo capacity on their services from Abu Dhabi (AUH) to London Heathrow (LHR) and Frankfurt (FRA).
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.

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.”
