Emirates SkyCargo partners on aid flights with IHC

The MoU was signed by Nabil Sultan, Emirates Divisional Senior Vice President, Cargo and Giuseppe Saba, CEO, International Humanitarian City.

Emirates SkyCargo and International Humanitarian City (IHC) have signed an memorandum of understanding (MoU) to cooperate on humanitarian logistics and crisis relief solutions.

The two groups will work together to develop logistics solutions for crisis relief operations and IHC will also approach Emirates SkyCargo as the air cargo carrier of first resort for transportation of urgently required aid materials to affected destinations.

In addition, the two organisations will work together to share know-how and develop best practices around the transportation of specialised cargo for relief efforts, they said.

The two organisations have worked together on several aid operations in the past.

Nabil Sultan, Emirates divisional senior vice president, cargo, said: “We are delighted to consolidate our partnership and develop a platform which will enable a more coherent and rapid response for aid delivery, and facilitate the development of robust and innovative solutions for humanitarian emergency response.

“With our widebody aircraft fleet and our global network centred in Dubai, we look forward to supporting International Humanitarian City as their preferred carrier for delivering aid to affected communities around the globe.”

IHC chief executive Giuseppe Saba added: “[This MoU] transforms our cooperation into something which goes beyond the use of the air assets and the large reach of Emirates SkyCargo, which still logistically represents a crucial worldwide network for the IHC Community in emergency response.”
