Saudia Cargo will restart B747 freighter services from Houston, TX (USA) to Saudi Arabia as of 15 June 2014. The service will be operated with B747-400 freighter once a week each Sunday from Houston direct to Dammam and Riyadh Via Amsterdam. With demand estimated to grow following the introduction of this service, Saudia Cargo plans to add a second weekly ï¬‚ight as of September 2014.
“We are thrilled to be returning to the market with a direct freighter service from Houston to KSA,” said Peter Scholten, VP Commercial at Saudia Cargo. “This is an important addition to our network, where we currently utilize the belly capacity on 17 weekly passenger ï¬‚ights from New York, Washington and Los Angeles to the Kingdom. A dedicated freighter service from the USA to Riyadh and Dammam will undoubtedly strengthen our position on this strategic route” he continued.
