Saudi Airlines Cargo is expanding its dedicated fleet of charter aircraft with the arrival of two more B747-400 freighters. Saudia Cargo’s latest additions will form part of its 15-strong fleet composed of four MD11s, two B747-8Fs, seven B747-400s and two B747-200 aircraft. Of these aircraft, 12 will be used for Saudia’s scheduled services to 27 freighter destinations worldwide, while its charter business will benefit from 3 dedicated B747 freighters.
“A 15-strong fleet with 12 aircraft being utilised for scheduled services, while the three dedicated charter aircraft will offer our clients more capacity in the ad-hoc charter market. The combination of our scheduled and charter activities enables us to offer our clients smart, cost-effective solutions via our 3 hubs in Saudi Arabia,” said Peter Scholten, VP commercial at Saudia Cargo.
