Saudia adds US trio

SAUDI Airlines Cargo (Saudia) has launched three Europe-to-US freighter flights a week.

The airline offers three 747F flights to New York and Houston from its European hub in Brussels (Belgium). From the latter two destinations Saudia serves Atlanta, Detroit, Los Angeles and Seattle.

“By adding the USA to our network we do not only respond to the developments in the cargo market but also to the increasing demand of freighter capacity out of Europe to the USA, especially to Houston,” Sander van Woesik, regional sales director Europe, said.

Saudi Airlines Cargo operates 12 freighters and sells the belly-capacity on 125 passenger aircraft.
