History

A subsidiary of Saudi Arabian Airlines (commonly known as Saudia), the company was established as part of a privatization in 2008.[2] In 2008, the company joined the IATA interest group Cargo iQ.[3] Saudia Cargo provides multi-specialized cargo handling as it operates a fleet of 8 freighter aircraft (B747-400 and B777F) to 13 cargo destinations as well as over 58 belly international destinations across six continents.[4] The CEO is Omar Talal Hariri,[5][6] a member of the Cargo Committee of the International Air Transport Association (IATA).[7]

In September 2018, the company announced two new terminal projects for King Abdulaziz International Airport in Jeddah, and King Khaled International Airport in Riyadh scheduled to be completed in 2022.[8] It has also expanded to Cairo and Dubai.[9]

In 2019, Saudia Cargo sponsored the Saudi International Golf Tournament as the formal logistics partner.[10]
