Emirates SkyCargo has operated more than 10,000 airfreight flights between April and June this year to facilitate the movement of essential cargo as the global pandemic continues.

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

Throughout May and June, Emirates SkyCargo carried out an average of 3,800 flights per month to more than 100 destinations. In total, the carrier said, these flights covered approximately 35,000m km.

Emirates SkyCargo noted that its May and June operations were significantly higher than at the end of March when it was operating flights to less than 40 destinations.

Nabil Sultan, divisional senior vice president, cargo at Emirates, commented: “As a customer-focused organisation, Emirates SkyCargo has innovatively adapted its 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.”
