Carriers sign MoU

May 9 - Emirates SkyCargo and Cargolux Airlines have signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) for a strategic operational partnership in air cargo transportation.

Under the terms of the agreement, which was signed at the Air Cargo Europe event in Munich, Germany, Emirates SkyCargo and Cargolux will seek to work closely on a number of operational aspects.

Emirates SkyCargo will utilise Boeing 747F aircraft from Cargolux, which will therefore enable Emirates to service customers with heavy/outsized cargo that requires nose loading.

Both carriers will further develop block space and interline agreements for use on each other's networks, permitting access to capacity on routes where they do not currently operate. Cargolux will have access to Emirates SkyCargo's high frequency distribution network, whilst Emirates will have access to main deck B747 capacity on Cargolux's network.

Emirates SkyCargo will commence freighter operations to Luxembourg from June 2017. Cargo from both Emirates SkyCargo and Cargolux will be handled at the same facility in Luxembourg. Cargolux will also increase the frequency of freighter flights to Dubai World Central (DWC) from its current three times a week service. Additionally, Cargolux freighters flying to Dubai World Central will be handled by Emirates SkyCargo.

According to the airlines, the agreement is the first of its kind between a mainline airline and a specialised freighter operator.
