Saudia Cargo has launched a B747-400 freighter service from Riyadh and Jeddah (Saudi Arabia) to New Delhi (India), complementing the existing freighter services to Mumbai.
The airline now offers its customers in northern India a bi-weekly B747-400F that departs Delhi every Thursday and Saturday.
Delhi has over the years become a key market for Saudia Cargo within the Saudia network. With garments and pharmaceutical products as key commodity drivers, this service has been timed so as to have quick connections from its dual hubs of Riyadh and Jeddah to destinations in the Middle East, Africa and Europe.
With the start of the Delhi freighter service, Saudia Cargo now operates four weekly freighters into India.
