The additional freighter service to Shanghai will increase the carrier’s weekly dedicated freighter flights between Shanghai and its Abu Dhabi hub to eight per week, increasing the cargo capacity out of Shanghai to 850 tons. 

Martin Drew, senior vice president of global sales and cargo at Etihad Aviation Group, said, "Etihad Cargo is committed to expanding its operations in China, which is a key global market for the carrier. Following the introduction of two more weekly freighter services between Shanghai and Abu Dhabi in 2022, this additional freighter service between Etihad Cargo's Abu Dhabi hub and Shanghai will further enable Etihad Cargo to fully meet customers' capacity needs."
