Emirates SkyCargo Voted Cargo Airline of the Year

Emirates SkyCargo, the Dubai-based air freight division of Emirates, has been voted Cargo Airline of the Year and – for the 24th consecutive year – it was also named Best Middle East Cargo Airline.

The carrier, which was also named Best African Cargo Airline, received the accolades at the prestigious Cargo Airline of the Year 2012 awards held at London’s Lancaster Hotel.

Ram Menen, Emirates’ Divisional Senior Vice President Cargo, attended the awards ceremony and later said: “These awards are voted for by our industry and their recognition of the continued success of Emirates SkyCargo is a great honour.”

Emirates SkyCargo received the awards at a time of continuing growth. A fourth Boeing 777F joined its fleet earlier in 2012, taking its dedicated fleet to eight aircraft, with a further nine Boeing 777Fs on order.

Since January 2012, Emirates has introduced services to eight new destinations: Rio de Janeiro, Buenos Aires, Dublin, Dallas, Lusaka, Harare, Liege and Seattle. It will also launch flights to Ho Chi Minh City in June, Lisbon and Barcelona in July, and Washington DC in September.

Emirates SkyCargo currently serves a route network of over 120 destinations from its Dubai hub, spanning six continents across the globe.

The Cargo Airline of the Year 2012 awards are organised by trade magazine Air Cargo News and attract votes from freight forwarders around the world. The awards are the only event where the British International Freight Association audits and approves the votes cast.

Emirates SkyCargo Transporting Record Levels Of Freight Between South America And Its Global Network

Emirates SkyCargo, the freight division of Emirates, one of the fastest growing international airlines, has transported more than 25,000 tonnes over the past year on the burgeoning trade lanes between South America and points across its global network.

Operating to more than 120 destinations, Emirates SkyCargo has been connecting businesses to more and more international trade opportunities after strengthening its commitment to the region with the launch of a new linked passenger flights from Buenos Aires-Rio de Janeiro to Dubai – the only non-stop service from Rio to the Middle East and fastest route to Asia – and increasing the frequency of its Sao Paulo freighter service.

Companies from Brazil and Argentina – as well as a significant number from Chile and Colombia through connecting interline flights – benefited from the addition in September of a third weekly freighter service from Viracopos-Campinas International Airport, increasing the weekly capacity on the route by 33% to 620 tonnes.

Emirates SkyCargo carried more than 20,000 tonnes over the last 12 months on Boeing 777Fs, the most modern, technologically advanced large freighter in operation, which offer customers enhanced levels of flexibility and reliability.

“Our expanded services in the region have not only boosted trade levels with the UAE, but also with South America’s main Far East business partners, such as China, Hong Kong and Japan, and a multitude of European countries,” said Ram Menen, Emirates’ Divisional Senior Vice President Cargo, in Sao Paulo at Intermodal, an event for trade, logistics, transport and international cargo handling businesses.

“Brazil is already recognised as an economic power and we hope to help it become even stronger by contributing to the growth of its import and exports industry. Currently, Emirates SkyCargo can connect South American businesses to 32 points in Europe, 19 in the Far East and Australasia and a further 22 in Africa, where there is also huge potential for economic growth.

“With five years’ experience of operating in South America we also have a strong understanding of the marketplace and the requirements of our customers, who benefit from our ever-expanding network and a reliable fleet, which becomes stronger almost every month as we take delivery of the 230-plus aircraft we have on order,” added Menen.

Since the daily Rio de Janeiro-Buenos Aires passenger service started on 3rd January, more than 1200 tonnes of cargo have been transported, with pharmaceuticals, machine parts and fresh fruits and fish being carried to Dubai and onward to European destinations such as France, Italy, Germany, Portugal and the UK, while in the Far East Hong Kong and China have been the key trading partners. Commodities going in the other direction include electronics, car parts and furniture.

In addition to the belly-hold capacity of the Rio de Janeiro-Buenos Aires flights operated by a Boeing 777-300ER, Emirates SkyCargo has been offering freight space since 2007 on a daily passenger service between São Paulo Guarulhos International Airport and Dubai, also operated by a Boeing 777-300ER. During the past 12 months more than 4000 tonnes have been transported.

Emirates SkyCargo expands North American operation

Emirates SkyCargo, the freight division of Emirates, one of the fastest growing international airlines, is expanding its North American operation, increasing trade opportunities between U.S. businesses and its global network.

After the launch of daily passenger service from Dallas/Fort Worth (DFW) and Seattle-Tacoma (SEA) International airports from 2nd February and 1st March respectively, Emirates SkyCargo will connect seven points in North America with trade prospects in more than 100 destinations worldwide.

“Our daily, non-stop flights from DFW and SEA will offer the fastest routes to the Middle East and beyond,” said Ram Menen, Emirates’ Senior Divisional Vice President Cargo. “We look forward to helping more American firms enhance their trade ties not only with the UAE, but also with markets in parts of South Asia, such as China, South Korea and Japan, and numerous points throughout Emirates’ extensive network in India and Africa.”

Air cargo being transported on Emirates’ flights departing the U.S will be handled at the airline’s Cargo Mega Terminal, housed at its state-of-the-art hub at Dubai International Airport (DXB), a location within eight hours of two-thirds of the world’s population.

“When combined with the efficiency of one of the youngest fleets in the skies, unrivalled ground-handling facilities, and the very latest information technology at our Cargo Mega Terminal, Emirates SkyCargo is the ideal partner for Dallas/Fort Worth and Seattle-based businesses as they look to boost trade,” added Menen.

The airline’s expansion will help facilitate the growth of trade in the Seattle metropolitan area that produced US$ 24.2 billion in total exports and US$2.7 billion in United Arab Emirates exports in 2008 and 2009 respectively. Texas exports to the UAE also expect significant growth, having reached over $1.7 billion in 2009 – an increase of more than 192 per cent since 2002.*

International cargo being exported from Dallas/Fort Worth will include oilfield equipment, electronic parts, computers, cell phones, medical equipment and pharmaceuticals; heading for markets across the Emirates network, from the UAE to Australia, India and Uganda. Leading import commodities such as communications equipment, automotive components, apparel and fabrics will come from a range of markets including Taiwan, Japan, Sri Lanka and Saudi Arabia.

Exports on the Seattle route are expected to include fresh fruits and vegetables, electrical equipment and machinery, as well as medical equipment and aircraft parts, which will be transported to the UAE and surrounding destinations in the Middle East. China and South Korea will also be key trading partners, with leading imported commodities set to consist of electronic equipment, footwear and apparel.

Emirates’ DFW and SEA services join existing operations from New York (JFK), Houston (IAH), Los Angeles (LAX) and San Francisco (SFO), as well as Toronto (YYZ) in Canada, further strengthening trade ties between North America, the UAE and points throughout Emirates’ network of 121 destinations, which will be bolstered in coming months with a further three routes – Seattle (1st March), Ho Chi Minh City (4th June), Barcelona (3rd July) and Lisbon (9th July).

Emirates SkyCargo Transports Its Heaviest Ever Item

Emirates SkyCargo came to the rescue of a ship undergoing repairs when it transported a 36-tonne rudder part – the heaviest single item ever carried by the freight division of Emirates Airline.

The rudder stock, which measured 9.16 metres long and 1.05 metres wide, was required for urgent repairs to a vessel at Dubai Dry Docks.

The part – tailor-made by Korean steel manufacturer Taewoong – would normally be transported by sea, but a quick solution, namely use of an air courier, was required to reduce the cost of the ship being out of service.

In conjunction with Dubai-based charter broker Air Charter International, it was transported on a Boeing 747-400F Emirates freighter from Seoul to Dubai and tested ground-handling operations at both airports to the fullest.

“Transporting a piece of air cargo this heavy requires the highest degree of care and special handling,” said Hiran Perera, Emirates’ Senior Vice President Cargo Planning & Freighters. “Two cranes capable of lifting 50 tonnes each, along with two high loaders were required, while more than 30 workers in both Seoul and Dubai made sure the intricate loading operation went smoothly.

“Precision planning and the combined expertise of everyone involved at Emirates SkyCargo, dnata, Air Charter International and Atlas Air was crucial to this success of this project,” added Perera. “This is testament to our commitment to meeting even the most challenging customer requirements. We are also committed to facilitating international trade, so it is particularly satisfying that we will have contributed to the vessel’s quick return to service.”

“With our client’s needs at the forefront of our efforts, it is crucial to be able to rely on a good partner,” said Ms Claire Brugirard, Commercial Manager at Air Charter International. “We were very pleased with the performance of Emirates SkyCargo in completing this project successfully.”

Emirates SkyCargo Celebrates Start Of New Freighter Service

Emirates SkyCargo, the freight division of Emirates Airline, yesterday celebrated the inaugural service on its new Far East and Australasia freighter route.

The weekly air cargo service, operated by its new Boeing 777 freighter, will fly Dubai-Singapore-Sydney-Hong Kong-Dubai, providing the key trading points with additional connectivity to Emirates’ Dubai hub, which can link businesses to the 114 destinations on the carrier’s network.

The Boeing 777F – which touched down for the first time in Sydney on 12th September – has the capability to carry up to 103 tonnes of freight.

“This new route not only bolsters capacity, it provides our customers with more options and increased trade opportunities,” said Hiran Perera, Emirates’ SVP Cargo Planning & Freighters.

“We currently transport cargo in the belly-hold of 126 passenger flights a week between Dubai and Australia, as well 28 Hong Kong flights and 42 Singapore flights, and the freighter – with a wide main deck door – will increase our ability to carry oversized shipments,” added Perera.

“This takes our import capacity to Australia to 1370 tonnes per week and, in these uncertain economic conditions, is further testament of our commitment to facilitating international trade for businesses in the region.”

The inaugural fligh – which carried 100 tonnes of cargo, including medical equipment, diagnostics, spare parts, textiles and clothing – was met by Greg Johnson, Emirates’ Cargo Manager Australia, and Alex Barkway, Emirates’ Cargo Manager New South Wales.

“The addition of a dedicated freighter service is a major milestone in Emirates SkyCargo’s growth in Australia, and offers new possibilities for expansion into other areas of air cargo transport,” said Johnson. “With the high Australian dollar driving up imports, this new flight will also provide us with much needed additional capacity into the market.”

EK9920 will depart Dubai every Sunday at 20:35 and touch down in Singapore at 07:55 the following day. The B777F will then depart at 09:00 and complete its outbound journey at 18:30 when it touches down at Sydney International Airport.

The return service, EK 9921, will depart Sydney every Monday at 21:30 and land in Hong Kong at 04:35 on Tuesday. Departing Hong Kong at 07:35 as EK 9865, the service will then terminate in Dubai at 10:35.

With a long-range flying capacity and technologically advanced General Electric (GE) engines, the Boeing 777F provides greater flexibility than any other freighter aircraft currently in operation. It maintains the lowest fuel burn of any comparable sized aircraft, consuming nearly 18 per cent less fuel than today’s freighters.

Emirates SkyCargo introduced its first Boeing 777F in March 2009. In December 2010, it operated its longest ever non-stop flight on the Boeing 777F; 17.5 hours from Sydney to New York. Emirates is the largest operator of Boeing 777 aircraft in the world, with 91 in its fleet currently.

Emirates Expands Its A380 Global Network

Emirates, the award-winning airline, notches up yet another first as it begins operation of the world’s first A380 commercial service f r o m Dubai to Australia and New Zealand, as Sydney and Auckland join Emirates’ rapidly-expanding A380 network.

Taking off f r o m its new home – Emirates Terminal 3, Dubai International Airport – EK 412 operated by Emirates’ revolutionary A380 aircraft arrived in Sydney and flew onwards to Auckland, carrying over 400 passengers. Emirates will operate its A380, dubbed ‘a premium hotel in the sky’, f r o m Dubai to Sydney and across to Auckland every Wednesday, Friday and Sunday, becoming daily f r o m May 2009.

Advancing Emirates’ environmental programme, the A380 service also heralds a new era for flights Down Under, a green best-practice demonstration flight, and the use of the world’s most eco-efficient commercial airliner on the Indian Ocean for the first time.

The Emirates’ A380 sets a new milestone in environmental conservation, with measures being deployed to cut fuel burn and emissions on flights to/f r o m Australia and New Zealand as well as reduce journey time for passengers. The per seat fuel burn on the Emirates’ inaugural A380 flight is expected to be 20% less than normal flights, and offering better fuel economy per passenger mile than most hybrid passenger cars.

Richard Vaughan, Emirates’ Senior Vice President, Commercial Operations, East Asia and Australasia noted: “The start of A380 services on this route represents yet another initiative in Emirates’ partnership with Australia and New Zealand. Emirates is not only committing to offer a revolutionary in-flight experience to travellers f r o m these countries but is also enhancing capacity on the route – welcome news to tourism authorities of both countries as they seek to attract increasing number of visitors f r o m the Middle East.”

Despite a challenging global economic environment, visitors f r o m the Middle East and North Africa (MENA) visiting Australia are expected to grow by 8% this year and by 15% in 2010, according to a forecast by the Tourism Australia Aviation and Economics Team. Already, Emirates is carrying over 50% of all Gulf tourists visiting Australia. The airline’s robust network in the Middle East and North Africa comprises 194 flights per week to 16 key gateways.

“The growth in Emirates’ seat capacity by over 40 % is expected to encourage above-average growth of visitor arrivals and support both countries’ marketing efforts in the region,” added Vaughan.

The new service will also benefit Australians and New Zealanders travelling to their preferred cities in Europe and the Middle East, and will facilitate a seamless A380 experience on flights to Dubai f r o m Auckland/Sydney and onwards to London Heathrow – an important route for travellers f r o m both countries.

Post arrival in Sydney and Auckland, Emirates kicked off familiarization tours aboard its superjumbo. Emirates’ A380 has received glowing reviews f r o m passengers and the travel trade with its onboard Shower Spas, another industry first, that offers a whole new dimension of luxury air travel.

Set in a three-class configuration (14 First, 76 Business and 399 Economy Class seats) the Emirates A380 offers a level of comfort and space never seen before on a commercial airliner. The whole of the upper deck is dedicated to Premium Class passengers. First Class passengers can relax in flat-bed, massage-equipped Private Suites. Business Class passengers can enjoy a new generation of intelligent seating designed to ensure all 76 flat-bed seats have aisle access. Passengers in Economy can appreciate a more spacious ambience, enhanced further by generous seats and wider aisles.
