Etihad Crystal Cargo has signed an interline agreement and code-share deal with Cargoitalia. The deal, which came into effect in early April, provides additional freighter capacity between Abu Dhabi and Milan where the service will link with Cargoitalia’s network of destinations in the US and central America including New York, Chicago, Houston as well as Mexico City.

Etihad currently operates a twice-weekly freighter service between Abu Dhabi and Milan, in addition to three passenger flights a week. Now the sector will get increased freight capacity with Cargoitalia’s 70-tonne capacity DC10F on the route.

Des Vertannes, Etihad Crystal Cargo’s executive vice president, said: "The new interline and code-share agreement with Cargoitalia will be of great benefit to our customers not only in terms of the wider number of freighter destinations we can now access, but also the greater capacity volumes offered by the new aircraft deployed on this popular route."
