Saudia Airlines B777-300 passenger planes with 140-ton payload capacity per flight are being utilised as “preighters” on the route scheduled for Wednesday and Saturday.

 

“We have seen a growing demand for air cargo in Denmark, Sweden and Norway. And we believe that Copenhagen, as a central location in the Scandinavian region, is an ideal route to capture business from all these countries,” said Saudia Cargo chief cargo officer Teddy Zebitz, himself a Danish. “For Denmark and Sweden, we’re focusing on pharmaceuticals while in Norway, we’re looking at transporting perishables like Salmon which the country is very well known for.”
