Etihad Cargo to start Moscow freighter services
Riyadh, August 11, 2014
Etihad Cargo, the freight business of Etihad Airways, will launch twice weekly freighter rotations linking Abu Dhabi and Moscow Domodedovo airports.
The dedicated cargo service will operate every Wednesday and Friday using an Airbus A330-200F freighter, with a capacity of 64 metric tonnes, starting on August 13.
Kevin Knight, chief strategy and planning officer at Etihad Airways, said: “Russia is a key market for Etihad Cargo and our new freighter service will allow us to capitalise on the growing trade between Russia and the UAE.
“The UAE is home to almost 25,000 Russians, 400 Russia-UAE joint venture companies and we believe this new cargo routing will complement our existing bellyhold operations to and from Moscow,” he added. – TradeArabia News Service
