Emirates boosts services

Emirates SkyCargo has scaled up its cargo services to connect an increasing number of global destinations.

The air cargo carrier currently operates flights to 51 destinations globally, deploying both its fleet of Boeing 777 freighter aircraft, which has a payload capacity of up to 100 tonnes, and Emirates’ B777 passenger aircraft that offer up to 50 tonnes bellyhold capacity.

Nabil Sultan, Emirates divisional senior vice president, cargo, said: “We have particularly ramped up operations for transporting cargo in the bellyhold of our passenger aircraft in the last two weeks. Emirates SkyCargo has been expanding its network on a daily basis and some of the latest destinations for our cargo flights on passenger aircraft include Bangkok (Thailand), Casablanca (Morocco), Johannesburg (South Africa), Singapore and Taipei (Taiwan).”

Emirates SkyCargo has also operated an increasing number of special charter flights for cargo both on its freighter and passenger aircraft. Since the start of April, the carrier has executed more than 30 charter flights connecting over 20 global destinations.

The main commodities transported on the charter flights are medical supplies including facemasks, protective covers, sanitisers, equipment for hospitals in addition to pharmaceuticals, raw materials and spare parts.
