Etihad Crystal Cargo, a division of Etihad Airways, has commenced scheduled services with its first Airbus A330-200 freighter aircraft, operating from Abu Dhabi to Tripoli in Libya.
The Airbus A330-200 freighter aircraft will allow Etihad to increase frequencies and build its presence in key markets worldwide, as well as enhance its worldwide charter services, officials say. The aircraft will operate to various Etihad Crystal Cargo destinations, including Hann; Beijing; Tripoli; Milan; and N'Djamena.
Roy Kinnear, Executive Vice President of Etihad Crystal Cargo, said the new A330-200 freighter aircraft is a key part of the airline's freighter fleet.
"The A330-200 freighter will reinforce and build Etihad's presence in the high-growth European and Asian freight markets, in particular China," he said. "Etihad Crystal Cargo is performing very well ... and the entry into service of the A330-200 freighter is an example of our commitment to the growth and expansion of our business."
The airline is set to take delivery of a second A330-200 freighter in December.
