February 27 - Saudia Cargo is to add more flights to selected routes in its existing freighter schedule.

The new schedule will include one additional weekly B747 freighter from Dhaka to Frankfurt, bringing the total number of freighter flights to four a week from Dhaka; one additional weekly flight from Hong Kong to Lagos, resulting in nine weekly flights from Hong Kong and eight to Lagos.

There will be one additional weekly flight from Frankfurt to Saudi Arabia, bringing the total number of weekly flights to five on the route.

"We are increasing capacity on these routes on the request of our clients in Hong Kong and Bangladesh," commented Peter Scholten, vice president commercial at Saudia Cargo. "Of course, all flights make commercial stops at our hubs in Saudi Arabia from where we connect to other destinations in our network."
