Saudi Airlines Cargo adds Asian flights
Published: March 8, 2012
Saudi Airlines Cargo is expanding its Asian services with new freighter flights out of Vietnam and China.
The carrier will launch twice-weekly Boeing 747-400 freighter service from Saigon, Vietnam March 25.
“Saigon is an emerging market. With China becoming more expensive, production is increasingly being moved to Vietnam and other developing countries. This new service will enable us to expand our network into the region in response to changing market conditions,” said Peter Scholten, VP commercial at Saudi Airlines Cargo in a statement issued by the Jeddah-based carrier.
Saudi Airlines Cargo also added a weekly MD-11F service March 4 from Guangzhou, China, to Brussels.
