Another year of expansion for Emirates Skycargo
Emirates Skycargo, the freight division of Emirates, grew strongly in 2017. The carrier’s performance with a combined cargo throughput of over 2.5 million t at Dubai International (DXB) and Dubai World Central (DWC), was underlined by continued investment in infrastructure and by the introduction of specialised customer-focused air transportation solutions across a number of industry verticals.
Emirates Skycargo introduced a range of air transport solutions including "Emirates pharma", "Emirates wheels" and "Emirates fresh".
In addition to providing belly hold cargo capacity on its fleet of 254 wide body passenger aircraft, the all-cargo carrier also offers freighter capacity on 13 B777-Fs and one B747-400ERF, connecting 140 destinations with scheduled and charter operations. (ah)
