Emirates SkyCargo keeps the world connected with over 10,000 flights in 3 months

July 24, 2020 Cargo & Freight No Comments Email Email

Between April and June 2020, Emirates SkyCargo has facilitated the movement of essential commodities and other supplies for individual consumers and businesses across the world, including Australia, operating more than 10,000 cargo flights to destinations across six continents.

The flights were a mix of scheduled, ad-hoc and charter operations.

In Australia, Emirates SkyCargo currently operates weekly scheduled cargo flights to Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane and Perth. Passenger freighters are currently operating on services to Melbourne, Sydney, Brisbane and Perth, at frequencies up to 6 flights per week between Australian cities, Dubai or South East Asian cargo destinations. Full deck freighter aircraft are operated on services to Sydney and Melbourne, with three and one flight per week, respectively.  

Nabil Sultan, Emirates Divisional Senior Vice President, Cargo said: “As a customer focused organisation, Emirates SkyCargo has innovatively adapted our cargo operations and offerings over the last few months in line with rapidly evolving market demand. In keeping with our core value as a global facilitator of trade and economies, we have re-grown our network to over 100 destinations with robust flight frequencies to key production and consumer markets. We continue to be able to offer our customers an unmatched reach and connectivity for their valuable cargo and our flight milestones are a validation of our customers’ trust in our service.”

During the months of May and June, Emirates SkyCargo operated on an average more than 3,800 flights per month, with the aircraft travelling to over 100 destinations and covering approximately 37 million kilometres, which is the equivalent distance of roughly 50 trips to the moon and back.

Starting from just over 35 destinations at the end of March 2020, Emirates SkyCargo has expanded its network to over 100 scheduled cargo destinations across the world for the month of July 2020. From transporting urgently needed medical supplies and food to materials required for manufacturing and other industries from origin to destination, Emirates SkyCargo is helping reconnect cities to international trade lanes as manufacturing and other economic activities recommence.
