Emirates unveils new terminal

November 10 - Emirates SkyCargo has officially opened its new cargo terminal, Emirates SkyCentral, which is located in the logistics district at Dubai South, UAE.

The cargo facility is the home of Emirates SkyCargo's fleet of 15 freighter aircraft, and was officially opened alongside the Dubai Air Show.

"The opening of Emirates SkyCentral is an important milestone for us, as it represents our vision for future growth and firmly establishes Emirates SkyCargo as the world's leading air cargo carrier across all its operational areas," claimed Nabil Sultan, Emirates divisional senior vice president, cargo.

"The space it currently occupies on the land allocated to us at Dubai South is part of a much bigger area, which we can develop over time to increase our cargo handling capacity to achieve our vision of 12 million tonnes annually by 2050, from the current 2.3 million tonnes." 

Emirates SkyCentral is located 77 km from Dubai International Airport (DXB), which the airline says is a convenient location with factories and forwarders in the surrounding areas, and in close proximity to a dedicated corridor to the Jebel Ali Port and Free Zone.
