Emirates to serve third Scandinavian destination
In exactly five months (i.e. from 2 September 2014), Dubai-based Emirates is going to expand its European network with a new daily B777-300ER flight to Oslo (Norway). It will be the carrier's third Scandinavian gateway, the other ones being Copenhagen (Denmark) and Stockholm (Sweden).
In addition to passenger operations, Emirates SkyCargo will offer 23 t of cargo capacity between Dubai and Oslo. Popular commodities are expected to be oil and gas equipment, maritime and ship spares, pharmaceuticals, seafood, chemicals, electronics, telecommunication equipment, machinery and dairy products, as well as fruit and vegetables bound for markets like Vietnam, China and Taiwan.
