Etihad Cargo has launched a fourth gateway destination in the US, operating its inaugural flight to Boston

Etihad Cargo, the cargo and logistics arm of Etihad Airways, has expanded its US network and will offer increased capacity to the region with the introduction of a new service to Boston, Massachusetts.

The carrier’s inaugural flight arrived on 31 March, commencing the regular service that will see the airline operate four flights per week to Boston.

Stanislas Brun, Vice President of Cargo at Etihad Cargo, said: “The introduction of the Boston route is a strategic expansion of Etihad Cargo’s US network, offering more belly capacity to partners and customers.

“Boston is an important destination for food and pharmaceuticals, as well as a centre for innovation and development.

“Etihad Cargo’s Abu Dhabi-Boston service will support the region’s export economy, particularly in facilitating the global distribution of its world-class seafood and breakthrough medical products, and further strengthen trade ties between the US and UAE.”
