May 2015

EMIRATES SkyCargo, the freight division of Dubai-based Emirates, will launch daily services to Orlando and Bali.

The Orlando service, beginning in September, will take the carrier’s US cargo network to 11 destinations. The Dubai-Orlando route will be served by a Boeing 777-200 LR, which has a belly-hold capacity of up to 17 tonnes per flight. Emirates SkyCargo also has belly-hold cargo services to San Francisco, Seattle, Washington DC, Boston, Dallas, New York, Los Angeles, Chicago and Houston, with the latter four cities also forming part of the air cargo carrier’s US freighter network, along with Atlanta.

“Last year we carried more than 100,000 tonnes of cargo to and from the US, facilitating foreign trade and opportunities between the world’s largest economy and markets within our network, mainly in the Middle East, Africa, and Asia,” said Nabil Sultan, Emirates divisional senior vice president, cargo.

“Every week, for example, we carry items such as auto parts out of JFK, lobsters from Boston, oil field equipment from Houston, and aircraft parts from Seattle, among many other types of commodities and products from various points in the US,” he added.

Emirates SkyCargo also announced it will soon be adding the popular Indonesian Island of Bali to its Asia Pacific network, opening up a new trade lane between the island and the cargo carrier’s network of more than 140 destinations.
