Saudi Airlines Cargo and DHL to launch Europe-Dubai service

Saudi Airlines Cargo will begin operating three weekly 747 freighters to the new Al Maktoum International Airport at Dubai World Central (DWC) as of March 2012. The service will operate direct flights departing from Brussels twice a week and from Amsterdam once a week.

The new service, which is part of a global part-charter programme with DHL Global Forwarding, enables Saudi Airlines Cargo to offer direct capacity from Europe to Dubai, United Arab Emirates (UAE).

"We are extremely excited to be partnering up with the world's largest forwarder, DHL Global Forwarding, on the new Dubai flights from Europe. This deal will help us to further expand our activities in the UAE, where we already operate scheduled B747 freighters from Sharjah to Lagos and N'djamena on top of 75 weekly passenger flights to Saudi Arabia," commented Peter Scholten, VP Commercial at Saudi Airlines Cargo.

Saudi Airlines Cargo operates scheduled freighter services with 12 freighters and sells the belly-capacity on 140 passenger aircraft for Saudi Arabian Airlines spanning a global network of 225 destinations. The cargo airline also provides charter flight solutions from a growing fleet of dedicated charter aircraft.
