Saudia Cargo adds two freighter routes

Saudia Cargo has expanded its freighter network by adding services to Paris and Mumbai.

On 22 May, the carrier started a freighter route to Paris Charles de Gaulle Airport from Jeddah using a Boeing 747 Freighter, which will operate twice a week.

Saudia Cargo says it will strengthen its airfreight presence within France. The airline explains Paris will give it the opportunity to meet strong demand for cargo from a “promising French market.”

Saudia Cargo vice president of commercial, Rainer Mueller, says: “Our focus is to improve connectivity and provide a growing network of destinations and quality operations to our customers.”

Mueller adds: “Adding Paris as a freighter station to our network on top of our 12 weekly passenger flights will offer a lot of opportunities to the French forwarding industry as well as exporters in other countries who are looking for a direct freighter product.”

Paris adds to the twice a week Boeing 777 Freighter service to Mumbai from Jeddah, which Saudia Cargo started on 7 May. The aircraft carries commodities such as fabrics, garments, and engineering products.
