Etihad Cargo boosts China capacity with additional Shanghai freighter service

Etihad Cargo is to introduce an additional weekly Abu Dhabi-Shanghai freighter flight from 2 February.

The cargo and logistics arm of Etihad Aviation Group said the flight was in line with its commitment to expand its capacity offering to the Chinese market.

The additional freighter service to Shanghai will increase the carrier’s weekly dedicated freighter flights between Shanghai and its Abu Dhabi hub to eight per week, increasing the cargo capacity out of Shanghai to 850 tons.

Etihad Aviation Group’s senior vice president of global sales & cargo Martin Drew said: “Etihad Cargo is committed to expanding its operations in China, which is a key global market for the carrier.

“Following the introduction of two more weekly freighter services between Shanghai and Abu Dhabi in 2022, this additional freighter service between Etihad Cargo’s Abu Dhabi hub and Shanghai will further enable Etihad Cargo to fully meet customers’ capacity needs.”

Etihad is introducing an additional non-stop widebody passenger flight to Shanghai on the same day, bringing the total number of direct passenger flights between Abu Dhabi and China to five per week.
