EMIRATES SkyCargo has appointed Globe Air Cargo, part of the European Cargo Services group, as its general sales agent in Hungary.

The airline currently operates a trucking service every Monday, Wednesday and Friday from Budapest to connect with its passenger and all-cargo flights from Vienna to Dubai. Its daily Boeing 777 flights can each carry up to 15 tons of cargo and Emirates also operates a Boeing 747 freighter service from Vienna to Dubai every Saturday offering a further 100 tons of capacity.

Globe Air Cargo in Hungary, won the contract through a competitive tender and expects to generate up to 800 tons of cargo per annum for the airline.

László Bóta, managing director of Globe in Hungary, said: “Emirates SkyCargo has one of the finest reputations in the world for the quality of its products and services, so we are delighted they see Globe Air Cargo as a strong partner to uphold this tradition in Hungary. As Vienna is only a four to five hour road journey away, we can offer customers in Budapest and across the country fast and easy access to Dubai and Emirates’ network beyond its hub.”
