Saudia Cargo Upgrades Shanghai Service With 747-8 Freighter
By: Saudi Airlines Cargo April 23, 2014
Saudi Airlines Cargo has upgraded its Shanghai service with the addition of a Boeing 747-8 freighter.
It now operates three weekly B747-8 flights from Shanghai directly to Europe and Saudi Arabia. The move signals Saudia Cargo’s expansion into the Greater Chinese market, where it already operates two weekly B747-400 freighters in Guangzhou, and eight weekly B747s (both 400s and 800s) in Hong Kong. The carrier said the enhancement follows growing demand for greater capacity out of China. Saudia Cargo operates a fleet of 15 freighters and sells belly capacity on 145 passenger aircraft for Saudi Arabia’s flag carrier Saudia, offering service to 225 destinations.
