Emirates launches Hong Kong, Delhi freighter to Dubai

Emirates SkyCargo is strengthening its footprint in the Far East and Indian sub-continent from today (June 1) with the launch of a weekly Boeing 777 freighter service from Hong Kong to Dubai via Delhi.
The Dubai-based combination carrier said that new weekly service is being introduced to "tap increasing cargo movements between Hong Kong, the world’s top cargo hub and Delhi, India’s busiest cargo hub".
Some of the key exports carried by Emirates SkyCargo from Hong Kong to India include pharmaceutical raw materials, electronics and machinery. Key exports from Delhi include leather goods, garments, pharmaceuticals and perishables.
Emirates SkyCargo also operates freighter services twice a week from Shanghai to Mumbai and onwards to Dubai and 18 dedicated cargo flights from Hong Kong to Dubai.
The B777-F, providing 100 tonnes of cargo capacity, has one of the widest main deck cargo doors "to facilitate the uplifting of large cargo consignments".
EK 9219 departs Hong Kong every Wednesday at 2135hrs and arrives in Delhi on Thursday at 0045hrs. The service leaves Delhi on Thursday at 0315hrs and reaches Dubai the same morning at 0520hrs.
