E-commerce traffic to Saudi Arabia continues unabated

Reibel Transport Inc. has embarked on a new charter operation. This operation was conducted for Saudia Airlines using a Boeing B747 freighter aircraft. In recent times, charter flights by Saudia Airlines have played a significant role in e-commerce traffic.

E-commerce traffic to Saudi Arabia gained significant momentum, especially in the last quarter of 2023, and continues to maintain this momentum. However, due to insufficient cargo capacities on scheduled flights, companies resort to “charter” services, which involve fully leasing aircraft, to create extra capacity. According to the February 2024 CASS report, destinations from Turkey to Riyadh and Jeddah are among the top 10 destinations. This has also attracted the interest of Saudi Arabian investors, leading to a noticeable commercial rapprochement between Saudi Arabia and Turkey in recent times.

The increasing popularity and demand for e-commerce have become a rapidly rising trend, especially in the post-pandemic period. As consumers’ interest in and trust in online shopping grow, companies are developing various strategies to benefit from the growth of this market. However, this rapid growth can lead to infrastructure issues such as logistics and cargo capacity. While seeking solutions to these problems, charter flights come to the forefront.

Charter flights offer an effective solution, especially for large-volume cargo transportation. Companies gain flexibility by providing additional capacity with aircraft specially leased according to their needs, thus meeting the demand. In this way, e-commerce companies and other commercial enterprises can deliver their products to consumers quickly and reliably.

The strengthening of commercial relations between Saudi Arabia and Turkey also influences these charter flights. The increasing trade volume between the two countries triggers growth in the logistics sector and increases the number of charter flights. This provides new business opportunities for both Turkish and Saudi businesses.

However, with the increasing number of charter flights, competition in the sector is intensifying. Airlines are developing various strategies to offer more competitive prices and better services. This provides consumers with a wider range of options and makes the market even more competitive.

In conclusion, the extra capacity created by the increasing e-commerce and charter flights to Saudi Arabia plays an important role in meeting the needs of both companies and consumers. It is expected that this trend will continue in the coming period, further strengthening commercial relations.

Mehmet Kali

Hello everyone. My name is Mehmet Kali. In the industry, I am known as "Kali". I graduated from the first civil aviation training school in Turkey, which was known as the Civil Aviation School at the time and is now Eskişehir Technical University, in 1991. As I graduated from the Business Administration department, it was a bit challenging for me to integrate into the industry. I have worked for companies such as SultanAir, DHMI, Havaş, and Swissair, and currently, I provide services and consultancy in air cargo transportation. I have experience in dispatching, air traffic control, passenger services, and aircraft coordination. During my time at Swissair, I had the opportunity to experience aviation training in many countries. Since 2012, I have been focusing on air cargo transportation. For three years, I taught courses on air cargo at Nişantaşı University. I still hold valid IATA certifications related to both passenger and cargo operations. For over ten years, I have been managing aeroportist.com, a news website related to aviation, which initially started as a hobby. I enjoy building aviation networks and sharing knowledge. If there is anything I can contribute to, I am here. Best regards "kali"
