One man's loss is another man's gain
While other international airlines are also reducing their maindeck capacities on flights to and from China because of the coronavirus, Emirates Skycargo is seeing good demand for the import and export of cargo to and from the Chinese market.
The air cargo carrier operates B777 freighter services to Guangzhou and Shanghai (PVG), having resumed these scheduled services after a planned hiatus over the traditionally low-traffic period over the Lunar New Year holidays.
Hiran Perera, Emirates SVP, cargo planning & freighters: "Emirates Skycargo is committed to supporting China’s diverse distribution needs and supply chains. We are a market-oriented carrier and are ready to fulfil the growing needs of our customers. We also continue to carry bellyhold cargo on our double daily flights between Beijing and Dubai." (ah)
