Etihad Cargo adds Wuhan to Chinese network

Etihad Cargo has extended its network in China with weekly flights to Wuhan Tianhe International Airport.

Wuhan is its 4th Chinese destination after passenger flights to Shanghai, Beijing and Guangzhou with the 2 weekly freighter services to Wuhan offering an additional 100 tonnes of capacity a week in Hubei province.

Adding the Wuhan flights brings Etihad’s cargo capacity for China to 1,000 tonnes a week including 850 tonnes for Shanghai on 8 freighter and 2 passenger flights.

The Wuhan flights will give Etihad Cargo customers and partners greater access to 25 domestic destinations including Shenzhen, Dongguan, Hangzhou, Chengdu and Nanjing via SF Airlines’ road feeder network.

Martin Drew, Senior Vice President – Global Sales and Cargo, says, “The addition of Wuhan to Etihad Cargo’s Chinese network is the latest step in enhancing the carrier’s capabilities in the region. These flights will provide greater connectivity, market access and cargo capacity for Etihad Cargo’s customers, further strengthening the relationship between the UAE and China and positioning Abu Dhabi as a global logistics and express hub.”
