As of 25 March 2012, the company will operate four direct freighter flights per week from Frankfurt to Saudi Arabia and two direct flights per week from Vienna to Saudi Arabia, connecting directly with Hong Kong and the Far East.
"We are extremely excited to be introducing these new services from Frankfurt and Vienna, which will provide a great boost to our existing activities in Europe where we currently operate scheduled freighters from Brussels, Amsterdam and Milan," commented Peter Scholten, VP Commercial at Saudi Airlines Cargo.
The airline will use B-747 freighters in Frankfurt and MD11s in Vienna.
Strategically located in the East of Austria, Vienna Airport serves as the primary hub to Eastern Europe. With direct access to important transport corridors to the East, Vienna is located directly in the growth markets of Central and Eastern Europe.

The cargo airline also provides cost-effective and practical worldwide charter flight solutions from a growing fleet of dedicated charter aircraft.
