Abu Dhabi: Etihad Cargo will partner with Avianca Cargo through a commercial agreement to deploy a freighter flight from Milan’s Malpensa Airport, Italy, to Bogotá, Colombia and from Bogotá to Amsterdam.

The new service will operate twice a week beginning November 12, 2014, providing an important cargo connection between Europe and South America.

The flights will also facilitate seamless transportation of goods to other markets around the world by linking the extensive global networks of both Etihad Airways and Avianca Cargo. In addition to passenger flights by Etihad Airways, Etihad Cargo currently operates four freighter flights per week between Abu Dhabi and Milan, Malpensa.

It will also feed traffic from markets across Asia, the Middle East and Africa.

Due to its strategic location in Southern Europe, Milan will function as a logistic hub by road to other cities in Italy, including Rome, and other countries such as France, Germany, Switzerland, Austria, Serbia, Croatia, Hungary, and Czech Republic.
