ACP Worldwide has been appointed cargo GSA across South Africa for Saudia Cargo. The Jeddah-based carrier currently operates three weekly B747 freighter flights from Johannesburg to Jeddah and Amsterdam, which are shared frequencies with Nairobi.
In addition to this freighter capacity, ACP will also be able to sell belly space on the Saudia’s three weekly 777-200 widebody flights between Johannesburg and Jeddah, which offers 50 tonnes of lower-deck cargo capacity per week.
The main business from South Africa is destined for the three principal hubs in Saudi Arabia: Jeddah, Riyadh and Dammam. Onward traffic moves to Amsterdam, London, Brussels and Khartoum. In response to this appointment, ACP’s Johannesburg based-team has deployed additional reservations and operations staff.
