Etihad Cargo expands in Boston

Carrier will offer an additional 50 tonnes of cargo capacity per week to the US

Etihad Cargo 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. Boston is Etihad Cargo’s fourth US destination, and the new route reinforces Etihad Cargo’s commitment to providing tailored cargo solutions to the North American region.

The new service will be operated on a state-of-the-art Boeing 787-9 Dreamliner, which will provide an additional cargo capacity of 50 tonnes per week, catering to the robust demand for freight between Boston and Abu Dhabi.

Etihad Cargo will offer tailor-made solutions for the diverse range of commodities prevalent in the Boston region, with a focus on perishables, medical instruments, pharmaceuticals, and aircraft parts.


This expansion brings the total number of flights Etihad Cargo operates to the US to 33 per week and demonstrates the airline’s ongoing efforts to enhance global connectivity and support trade across its network.

“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,” remarked Stanislas Brun, Vice President of Cargo, Etihad Cargo.

Further enhancing the carrier’s capabilities in the US, Etihad Cargo expanded its network with Worldwide Flight Services (WFS), a member of the SATS Group, to incorporate all the carrier’s stations in the US, a press statement concluded.
