The Air Cargo Week World Air Cargo Awards is an important annual event which celebrates excellence and achievement in the global air cargo industry. Based on readers’ votes, this award takes into consideration a number of factors, including commitment to the development of air cargo, investment in new products and services and consistent pattern of growth.
Saudi Airlines Cargo has grown significantly over recent years, both in terms of its belly capacity as part of the Saudia fleet on the passenger side and its own freighter capacity. This growth has resulted in increased frequencies to existing destinations as well as new routes to several destinations across the globe. The airline continues to invest in new products, having recently launched Pharma.2.World Active, a high-tech solution used to maintain temperatures of pharmaceutical and life science products during transport, as well as other innovative solutions such as the OK2GO online tool and the electronic air waybill (e-AWB). Saudia Cargo’s reputation for reliability, adherence to the highest international standards and commitment to cost-effective solutions has won it numerous industry awards and the airline continues to perform well despite the difficult economic climate.
Saudi Airlines Cargo operates a fleet of 15 freighters and sells the belly-capacity on 145 passenger aircraft for Saudi Arabia’s flag carrier Saudia, spanning a rapidly expanding global network of 225 destinations. In addition to its scheduled freighter services, the cargo airline also provides cost-effective and practical worldwide charter flight solutions from a growing fleet of dedicated charter aircraft.
