The cargo and logistics arm of Etihad Aviation Group, Etihad Cargo, will further expand its capacity offering to the Chinese market with the introduction of an additional weekly Abu Dhabi to Shanghai freighter flight from 2nd February 2023 onwards. This will increase the carrier’s weekly dedicated freighter flights between Shanghai and its Abu Dhabi hub to 8 flights per week which would increase the cargo capacity out of Shanghai to 850 tons.

Martin Drew, Senior Vice President of Global Sales & Cargo at Etihad Aviation Group, 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.”
