Emirates SkyCargo has introduced weekly scheduled cargo flights using its Boeing 777-300ER passenger aircraft to Sao Paulo.
The airline said that the move would allow importers and exporters in the region to stay connected with their trading partners across the world with access to around 40 tonnes of cargo capacity on the lower deck of the Emirates aircraft.
In addition to the weekly scheduled flights, the cargo carrier is scheduled to operate multiple charter flights to Sao Paulo to transport medical supplies in the month of May.
Emirates SkyCargo has also operated cargo flights to other points in South America including Buenos Aires, Quito and Santiago during the last two weeks.
In addition, the cargo business said that it has exported flowers and perishables in Ecuador by operating four cargo flights from Quito during the last week of April. The cargo transported on these flights were mainly flowers and other perishables being transported to Europe.
At current planning, Emirates SkyCargo is set to execute more than 10 charter flights across its South American destinations for the month of May.
Emirates SkyCargo is operating scheduled cargo flights to more than 65 global destinations.
