Etihad signs for cargo gold card

ETIHAD Crystal Cargo is hoping to gain a significant competitive advantage, by signing up to Abu Dhabi Customs’ new ‘gold card’ programme, says executive vice-president, Des Vertannes.

The gold card, introduced in February 2008, grants Etihad automatic pre-clearance service to process its customs transactions, along with other preferential treatment such as a 90-day ‘rolling credit’ period with Customs.

“As Etihad Airways continues to grow its flying programme, Crystal Cargo will ship greater volumes of company and client consignments through Abu Dhabi.

“The new gold card service will have a significant impact for us, providing effective and efficient customs clearance whether it is for perishable or non-perishable products,” said Vertannes.
