By Rachelle Harry

This month, Emirates SkyCargo has expanded its network to cover 100 destinations across six continents.

The carrier said it enhanced its network in response to the growing economic activity and demand following disruption caused by Covid-19 .

New destinations include Accra, Algiers, Athens, Fort Lauderdale, Glasgow, Larnaca, Los Angeles, Male, Moscow (SVO), Phnom Penh, Rome, Santiago, Sialkot and Tunis.

“By offering multiple daily or weekly cargo flight frequencies to major production and consumer markets, [we are] helping to facilitate supplies of goods required for combatting the current pandemic, as well as machinery and equipment required for manufacturing and several key economic sectors across global trade lanes,” the carrier said in a statement.

In addition to its scheduled services, Emirates SkyCargo is operating special charter flights every week to transport cargo such as personal protective equipment, pharmaceuticals, food, outsized machinery and components.

Emirates SkyCargo offers capacity on its widebody Boeing 777 freighter fleet and in the bellyhold of its passenger flights. The carrier is also operating cargo-only passenger flights, utilising the bellyhold, seats and overhead locker space, of its Boeing 777-300ER aircraft.
