Saudi Airlines Cargo Readies Three Weekly Freighters From Benelux to Dubai

Saudi Airlines Cargo will begin operating three weekly 747 freighters from the Benelux (Belgium, Netherlands and Luxembourg) region to Dubai, United Arab Emirates in March.

The service will depart from Brussels, Belgium twice a week and from Amsterdam in the Netherlands once a week, serving the new Al Maktoum International Airport at Dubai World Central (DWC). Part of a global part-charter program with DHL Global Forwarding, the service enables Saudi Airlines Cargo to offer direct capacity from Europe to Dubai. The carrier already operates scheduled B747 freighters from Sharjah to Lagos and N'Djamena, supplementing 75 weekly passenger flights to Saudi Arabia. Saudi Airlines Cargo operates 12 freighters and scheduled service, and sells belly capacity on 140 passenger aircraft for Saudi Arabian Airlines, covering a network of 225 destinations.
