Saudi boosts Chad service with second B747F


Saudi Airlines Cargo has increased freighter frequency from its Jeddah hub to N’Djamena in Chad with the addition of a second B747F flight each week. The carrier started the original service in June 2011, but Amer Abu Obeid, sales director for the Middle East, North Africa and Turkey, said cargo demand has been growing with Saudi Airline’s 19 freighter connections per week to Europe via Jeddah proving attractive to shippers. “The cargo market into Chad is growing from different points in our network,” he said. “This second flight into N’Djamena is another step toward achieving Saudia Cargo’s ambitious plans to expand its global reach, with eyes on Africa, in particular.”
