Etihad Cargo, the cargo division of Etihad Airways, the national airline of the United Arab Emirates (UAE), has been recognised as ‘Cargo Airline of the Year’ by leading industry magazine, Air Cargo Week, at a prestigious gala dinner awards ceremony in Munich. 

Held alternately at Air Cargo Europe in Munich or Air Cargo China in Shanghai, the ‘Air Cargo Week Awards’ are presented in nine categories ranging from ‘Airfreight Forwarder of the Year’ to ‘Cargo Airline of the Year’.

Voted for by the industry, the awards were presented during this year’s Air Cargo Europe, an exhibition organised by Air Cargo Week’s owner - Azura International – and the conference venue operator - Messe Muenchen. The magazine’s ‘World Air Cargo Awards’ took place at a Gala Dinner, at the Bayerischer Hof Hotel, on the evening of Wednesday 6 May 2015, where the Etihad Cargo team were presented with their latest award.

David Kerr, Vice President of Etihad Cargo, said: “This is another award that reflects the hard work of the team at Etihad Cargo, who operate in different countries across our growing network. As with our passenger airline services, we are recreating the airline’s vision of being the best in our field of business, going above and beyond, to ensure our customer’s needs are met. We’re delighted to accept the award and it’s a mark of our continued success as the cargo division of Etihad Airways.”

The latest award follows swiftly after the cargo team won Best Cargo Airline in the Middle East from Air Cargo News, Cargo Operator of the Year at the ITP Publishing Group’s annual Supply Chain and Transport Awards (SCATAs), and ‘Cargo Airline of the Year’ at the annual Air Transport News awards.

From its hub in Abu Dhabi, Etihad Cargo’s fleet of 10 freighter aircraft operates scheduled services to 38 destinations on its passenger network, and 14 regular freighter-only services to key destinations around the world including Bogotá, Chittagong, Dar es Salaam, Djibouti, Dubai World Central, Eldoret, Guangzhou, Hanoi, Hong Kong, Houston, Kabul, Miami, Sharjah and Tbilisi.

Etihad Cargo also offers a combination of belly hold capacity and main deck freighter services to 111 destinations internationally, operated on a fleet of 116 passenger and freighter aircraft.
