Current Postion: Home  >> Industry NewsSaudi Air Cargo to fly twice weekly to Frankfurt and Ho Chi Minh

JEDDAH based Saudi Airlines Cargo is to launch a twice-weekly freighter service to link cheaper manufacturing hubs of southeast Asia to the Middle East and Germany using a B747 freighter.

The service will fly from Ho Chi Minh City to Dubai and Frankfurt from March 25.

In a report from Air Cargo World its vice-president of commercial Peter Scholten said that Ho Chi Minh City (Saigon) is an emerging market: "With China becoming more expensive, production is increasingly being moved to Vietnam and other developing countries".

"With China becoming more expensive, production is increasingly being moved to Vietnam and other developing countries. This new service will enable us to expand our network into the region in response to changing market conditions," he said.

Saudi Airlines Cargo will perform a Brussels-Dubai routing twice a week and fly from Amsterdam to Dubai once a week, according to a press release.

Ingo-Alexander Rahn, executive vice president of global air freight and head of StarBroker at DHL, said the decision to collaborate with Saudi was strategic. "We chose to work with Saudi Airlines Cargo on this programme because, in addition to the new orientation of [Saudi Arabian Airlines], we have found the right mix of commitment, flexibility and network capabilities," he said.
