Earlier in July, Etihad Cargo reinforced its commitment to the Chinese market with the introduction of 15 direct passenger and freighter flights per week.
During the pandemic, the carrier supported customers in China with a wide variety of capacity, including introducing reconfigured cargo-only passenger freighters. Etihad said it will continue to expand operations from July onwards, focusing on direct passenger flights and dedicated 777 freighter flights.
Etihad Cargo currently operates Boeing 777-200 freighter flights daily for Shanghai and six times per week for Hong Kong, and with the addition of belly capacity on passenger flights, the airline’s total cargo capacity into and out of China equates to 2,708 tonnes per week.
Across its cargo network, the carrier said it will continue to operate its Boeing 777 freighter network with flights across Chicago, Dhaka, Frankfurt, Hanoi, Ho Chi Minh City, Johannesburg, Kenya, Milan and Riyadh.
