[HD video below] The inaugural flight for Etihad Crystal Cargo’s new A330-200 freighter aircraft took place on Saturday, 28 August, and was a special charter carrying medical and humanitarian supplies to Pakistan.

The new A330-200F was deployed to Karachi and utilised the aircraft’s capacity of 59 tonnes. The aid was required following heavy monsoon rains which hit Pakistan causing severe flooding to major areas of the country.

Etihad worked with UK-based Chapman Freeborn Air chartering specialists on the project. The charter flight began in Billund, Denmark, and flew first to Abu Dhabi and then onto Karachi.

James Hogan, Etihad Airways’ Chief Executive Officer, said: “The UAE and Pakistan have a very close bond and Etihad, the UAE’s national airline, is proud to play a part as Pakistan continues to recover from the devastating flooding.”
