Posted 14 June 2016 · Add Comment

Etihad Cargo has commenced a new twice-weekly A330 freighter service to Brussels Airport in Belgium.

The airline already flies a daily passenger service to Brussels with its supporting bellyhold cargo, and the addition of the freighter underlines Belgium’s importance to its European network. 

David Kerr, vice president of Etihad Cargo, said: “Brussels is an important route into Europe with the freight operation returning to full strength, so as part of our plans to expand further this year, we are pleased to begin operating in and out of the city.

“Brussels provides vital connections across Europe and is also a key connector into Africa so we know that it will be another important route on our global freighter network.”
