Etihad Cargo Increases Capacities for North American Market

Etihad Cargo will offer partners and customers an incremental capacity of 250 tonnes per week

Etihad Cargo has strengthened its commitment to the US market. The carrier will offer incremental capacity beyond its belly hold capacity in cooperation with network partner airlines to meet the growing demand for air freight to the US.

Etihad Cargo currently offers 550 tonnes of wide-body capacity to North America. The carrier provides 445 tonnes ex US via 30 flights per week through four major gateways: New York, Chicago, Washington, and Boston. Etihad Cargo also offers 105 tonnes ex Canada via daily flights to Toronto.

To address the increased demand for air freight between the East and the West, Etihad Cargo, in partnership with network airlines, will introduce an incremental 250 tonnes of capacity per week for North American destinations.
