Proof that the sector is seeing light at the end of the tunnel comes with Saudia Cargo's decision to enhance its Hong Kong service schedules.
Unsurprisingly, the enhancement is down to consumer behaviour.
To meet the increasing demands of the e-commerce business, the carrier is scheduling three additional passenger/freighter flights from Hong Kong. The operations will be carried out with its B787 Dreamliner every Sunday, Monday and Wednesday.
These added flights are an increment to the existing capacity that comprises nine weekly freighter scheduled services.
