Etihad adds UK freighter links

[ November 16, 2016   //   ]

Stansted and East Midlands are among three new Etihad freighter services to its Abu Dhabi hub. Last month Etihad Cargo started operating its Boeing 777 freighters from East Midlands and Stansted airports as well as to Copenhagen in Denmark.
Senior vice president of Etihad Cargo, David Kerr, said: “These three new services will connect producers with consumers halfway around the world. Manufacturers in the UK and Denmark can now get their merchandise to their customers in the Middle East even faster, in as little as 24 hours in some cases.”
The new routes bring the number of freighter destinations in Europe to nine. Etihad Cargo already operates maindeck capacity from Amsterdam, Frankfurt (Frankfurt Main and Frankfurt-Hahn), Milan, Brussels and Zaragoza, as well as belly capacity on its passenger flights from the Continent.
