Etihad Cargo wins 'Cargo Airline of the Year'
Etihad Cargo, the cargo division of Etihad Airways, has been awarded ‘Cargo Airline of the Year’ by Air Cargo Week, at a ceremony in Munich.
Voted for by the industry, the awards were presented during this year’s Air Cargo Europe exhibition.
David Kerr, vice president of Etihad Cargo, said: “This is another award that reflects the hard work of the team at Etihad Cargo, who operate in different countries across our growing network.
"As with our passenger airline services, we are recreating the airline’s vision of being the best in our field of business, going above and beyond, to ensure our customer’s needs are met.
"We’re delighted to accept the award and it’s a mark of our continued success as the cargo division of Etihad Airways.”
The latest accolade follows hot on the heels of the 'Cargo Operator of the Year' award, presented to Etihad Cargo in April at the annual Supply Chain and Transport Awards (SCATAs), which is organised by ITP Publishing.
From its hub in Abu Dhabi, Etihad Cargo’s fleet of 10 freighter aircraft operates scheduled services to 38 destinations on its passenger network, and 14 regular freighter-only services to key destinations around the world including Bogotá, Chittagong, Dar es Salaam, Djibouti, Dubai World Central, Eldoret, Guangzhou, Hanoi, Hong Kong, Houston, Kabul, Miami, Sharjah and Tbilisi.
Etihad Cargo also offers a combination of belly hold capacity and main deck freighter services to 111 destinations internationally, operated on a fleet of 116 passenger and freighter aircraft.
