Etihad Cargo Offers Additional Bellyhold Capacity to New York
Etihad Cargo, the cargo and logistics arm of Etihad Aviation Group, has reinforced its commitment to the US market with the introduction of an additional 50 tonnes of belly capacity via four new weekly direct passenger flights to John F. Kennedy International Airport (JFK) from 15 November 2022.
With the addition of these flights, the carrier will offer a total of 11 weekly flights between Abu Dhabi and New York.
The introduction of additional capacity to Etihad Cargo's winter schedule brings the total cargo capacity into and out of the US to 1,084 tonnes per week.
Martin Drew, Senior Vice President Global Sales & Cargo at Etihad Aviation Group, said: "Etihad Cargo continuously reviews its network to add more capacity to meet the needs of its partners and customers.
"The introduction of four additional weekly flights to New York to the carrier's winter schedule further demonstrates Etihad Cargo's commitment to customers, offering additional capacity on this key trade lane and strengthening the US's connection to the rest of the world via Etihad Cargo's hub in Abu Dhabi."
Providing additional capacity to New York is the latest step by the carrier to expand operations in the US. Earlier in 2022, Etihad Cargo strengthened the carrier's US commercial team with the appointment of Caroline Pappas to the role of General Manager – Americas.
