Etihad Cargo ramps up cargo capacity to Guangzhou, China

Etihad Cargo, the cargo and logistics arm of Etihad Airways, has further enhanced the carrier’s freighter network with the addition of a weekly freighter service to Guangzhou.

Offering a new freighter route to Guangzhou comes in response to increased demand for cargo capacity for China and bolsters Etihad Cargo’s existing freighter network, bringing the total number of freighter services for mainland China to ten per week. 

In recent months, Etihad Cargo has continued to add depth to the carrier’s Asian network, launching a fourth Chinese gateway to its network, offering a weekly freighter service to the Hubei Province of China. The carrier’s inaugural flight to Ezhou Huahu Airport arrived on 18 August, making Etihad Cargo the first international carrier to operate flights to China’s first professional cargo airport. The carrier also offers eight weekly freighter flights to Shanghai.  

Complementing Etihad Cargo’s expanding freighter network, the carrier offers additional belly capacity for China via ten passenger flights per week to Beijing, Guangzhou and Shanghai. Via the carrier’s growing road feeder services network in China, Etihad Cargo also offers customers and partners access to 25 domestic mainland Chinese destinations, providing seamless connectivity across the Chinese market.
