Because of the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, airlines have been changing their modi operandi.

With American Airlines already focusing on cargo flights, together with Delta Air Lines, the latest news from the Middle East concerns Saudi Airlines Cargo Company, which has taken steps to ensure the continuity of all cargo and supply operations and the arrival of necessary goods and products including medical equipment, medicine and foodstuffs.

The steps come in line with the official decisions, which excluded all cargo operations from a suspension imposed on other business activities as part of the precautionary measures the Kingdom has taken to prevent a COVID-19 outbreak.

All cargo flights to Europe will continue through Frankfurt and Liège stations in addition to Dhaka station. Work at these stations is run as scheduled in order to mitigate the impact of the imposed suspension.
