  1. When does the service start and what time does it arrive at EMA

    1. Hi Paul,

      The original press release had stated 01SEP. However given the short notice for the route's launch, it is likely it has been delayed until demand picks up.

      I am in touch with ET Cargo and will hopefully have more info in the near future. Once it comes through, I'll update the post accordingly.
