Five years of pharma and fish
Life-saving medication manufactured in Belgium and fresh salmon from Norway are just two of the commodities that are transported across the world by Emirates Skycargo via Dubai (UAE). Since the start of its services to Belgium and Norway in September 2014, the freight division of Emirates has flown over 235,000 t of cargo to and from both countries.
Customers in and around Brussels (Belgium) can access up to 20 t of belly capacity on Emirates' twice daily B777-300ER flights. They can also transport their cargo on thrice weekly B777F flights, which are capable of carrying up to 100 t of cargo per flight and can also load large, outsized or heavy cargo.
And as a result of the strong demand for transporting salmon, Emirates SkyCargo launched a weekly freighter service on its B777F to Oslo in October 2016. (ah)
