Washington, D.C. now on Etihad Cargo's route

By Hpanchal on April 11, 2013

Etihad Cargo has added cargo service to Washington, D.C., from Abu Dhabi in addition to boosting frequency to Hong Kong courtesy of its partner Air Seychelles.

Washington is Etihad Cargo’s fifth destination in North America, while Hong Kong is already part of the carrier's five-destination China cargo network.

"Our cargo network continues to expand and with the addition of belly hold capacity to Washington, D.C., and an overall increase in cargo capacity to Hong Kong, we believe these new operations will strengthen cargo services both east and west for our customers," Kevin Knight, chief strategy and planning officer at Etihad Airways, said.

Etihad Airways has deployed an Airbus A340-500 aircraft to operate the daily Abu Dhabi-Washington D.C. route, while Air Seychelles has scheduled its Airbus A330-200 aircraft to fly the three times a week service to Hong Kong.

In North America, Etihad Cargo already offers service from Chicago, New York, Toronto and Houston.
