Saudia Cargo has helped bring the FIA’s Formula-E Championship to Riyadh in Saudia Arabia for the first time from 13-15 December utilising its freighter fleet.
The cars, spares and the various equipment were carried from several European destinations into King Khalid Airport in Riyadh, as a total of 58 cars were loaded on several aircraft with a combined load exceeding 220 tonnes.
These heavy loads were carried for the 2018 Saudia Ad Diriyah E-Prix. The Saudi Arabian Airlines sponsored event will take place in Ad Diriyah, a UNESCO world heritage site and the historical capital of the Kingdom, serving as the host for the E-Prix, one of the biggest annual global sporting events.
Formula E, officially the ABB FIA Formula E Championship, is a class of auto racing that uses only electric-powered cars. Inspired by innovation, this race utilizes eco-friendly electric energy.
Coming in line with the Kingdom’s Vision 2030, the three-day festival provides a wide variety of entertainment activities, from the Formula-E races to live musical live performances to the Allianz E-Village, an area full of innovative electric cars and gaming platforms, providing an excellent opportunity for fans and families to discover the world of Formula E.
Earlier in the year, Saudia Cargo carried all the equipment of the World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE) event to the Kingdom for the ‘Crown Jewel’ tournament and transported two satellites from Riyadh to Shanghai.
