Eti­had Cargo ex­pands net­work with bel­ly­hold ca­pac­ity on new Barcelona route

Logistics Middle East - - UPDATE -

With the launch of Eti­had Air­ways pas­sen­ger ser­vices to Barcelona, Eti­had Cargo has ex­panded its cargo ca­pac­ity into Spain, pro­vid­ing freight for­warders and cargo cus­tomers greater ac­cess to its global net­work.

Eti­had launched its first sched­uled flights link­ing Abu Dhabi and Barcelona on Novem­ber 28th, 2018.

Com­bined with its daily Madrid ser­vice, launched in 2015, Eti­had Cargo now of­fers 28 tons cargo ca­pac­ity out of Spain via bel­ly­hold on its 787 and A330 air­craft ev­ery day.

In ad­di­tion, truck­ing ser­vices for gate­ways across Europe fur­ther com­pli­ment the net­work, of­fer­ing cus­tomers greater reach and faster de­liv­ery times.

“Spain is an im­por­tant global trade mar­ket with high de­mand for both im­port and ex­port ca­pa­bil­i­ties to key des­tina- tions across the Mid­dle East and Asia,” said Ab­dulla Mo­hamed Sha­did, Eti­had Air­ways man­ag­ing di­rec­tor, Cargo and Lo­gis­tics. “Ex­pand­ing our ca­pac­ity into the mar­ket with the ad­di­tion of ser­vices to Barcelona en­hances our net­work with even greater fo­cus on key global trade routes.”

“The grow­ing com­mer­cial and cul­tural links be­tween the UAE and Spain are an op­por­tu­nity to in­crease trade and Eti­had is hon­oured to play a piv­otal role in fa­cil­i­tat­ing and en­hanc­ing its growth,” he added.

Eti­had Cargo first started op­er­at­ing in Spain as on off- line car­rier, send­ing ship­ments to Paris and Am­s­ter­dam via truck to feed into the Eti­had net­work.

Key seg­ments for Eti­had Cargo in Spain are fash­ion, per­ish­able goods, pharma and au­to­mo­tive, which are catered to by spe­cial­ist Eti­had Cargo prod­ucts.
