Saudia Cargo has announced that it is to operate two weekly B747 freighter services from Europe to Doha, effective 1 June 2014. Operating on Wednesdays from Frankfurt and on Sundays from Amsterdam, the new service is expected to meet growing demand in a market currently dominated by a handful of operators, according to Saudia. “We are delighted to be introducing this new direct service from Europe to Doha,” commented Nabil Khojah, CEO at Saudia Cargo. “Not only will it provide our customers with greater choice and flexibility at competitive rates, but it will also be a valuable addition to our expanding network. Thus, further strengthening our position in the Middle Eastern market,” he added.
