Trinity and Etihad link up for Hanoi-Rickenbacker 777F service


Trinity Logistics and Etihad Airways have collaborated on operating a weekly Boeing 777 Freighter service between Vietnam’s Hanoi International Airport (HAN) and Ohio’s Rickenbacker International Airport (LCK).

The move represents the first time the airports have been directly connected, making the transfer of goods between the two countries faster than ever before.

The companies made history in 2016, by becoming the first and only alliance to operate a twice-weekly direct freighter service between Colombo, in Sri Lanka and Rickenbacker International Airport.

A year later, their latest service promises clients three weekly flights from Asia to the East Coast of the US, with Columbus, in Ohio being the first port of entry.

Trinity Logistics president, David Pereira says: “We expect our flight will be taken advantage of, for the speed and capacity it creates.”

Etihad Cargo director, Roberto Gilardoni adds: “We are excited to develop a new market with our strategic partner Trinity Logistics. Expectations remain high in terms of our mutual growth plans for the region.”
