On May 22, Saudia Cargo commenced its twice-a-week flights to Copenhagen, widening its route network in Scandinavia for pharmaceuticals and perishables.

Saudia's B777-300 aircraft with a140 tonne payload capacity have been utilised as preighters on the route scheduled for Wednesday and Saturday.

“We have seen a growing demand for air cargo in Denmark, Sweden and Norway. And we believe that Copenhagen, as a central location in the Scandinavian region, is an ideal route to capture business from all these countries,” commented Saudia Cargo's Chief Cargo Officer, Teddy Zebitz. “For Denmark and Sweden, we’re focusing on pharmaceuticals while in Norway, we’re looking at transporting perishables like salmon.”
