Cargolux expands Saudi Arabia service
Cargolux has expanded its services to Saudi Arabia by introducing a weekly frequency to Riyadh, effective this week, in addition to its twice weekly service to Dammam.
CV 7527 is operated every Sunday morning from Luxembourg, with arrival in Riyadh on the same day. The flight is continued to Hong Kong, CV 6587, and further on to Chicago and New York, CV 6591, before returning to Luxembourg.
The company will use its B747-400 freighter on the route, with the bulk of cargo expected to include consumer goods, machinery and pharmaceuticals.
Cargolux started services to Dammam in October 2005, and a second frequency was added in May 2006. The service is operated out of Luxembourg on Friday and Sunday evenings, with arrival in Dammam on Saturday and Monday mornings.
