September 23, 2020: Saudia Cargo has enhanced the logistic capacity of its fleet by adding a new Boeing 747-400F freighter, bringing the total number to seven aircraft. The company said the new aircraft will boost the cargo and supply operations and help meet the significant surge on the demand for medicine, medical and preventive equipment and other similar goods.

Saudia Cargo fleet consists of seven Boeing aircraft as follows: four Boeing 777 and three Boeing 747-400F.

“The aircraft started the freighter services in September after all licenses have been obtained, flight schedules have been prepared and proper enhancements have been put in place,” noted the release.

Omar Hariri, CEO, Saudia Cargo, said, “We have taken practical steps to guarantee the cargo and supply operations smooth continuity to and from the Kingdom ever since the flights, excluding cargo and evacuation, were suspended due to Covid-19. Once the new freighter has been put into operation, it will increase the operation and cargo capacity and help the company meet its targets and provide logistic support to deliver urgent medical cargos to the Kingdom in order to mitigate the impact of Covid-19 as part of its continued efforts.”

Since the emergence of Covid-19, Saudia Cargo has increased air freight services to many global destinations and markets covering the Middle East, Europe, Africa, Asia, and the United States of America.
