Go mango go, Emirates celebrates record volumes ex-India

Emirates SkyCargo transported record volumes of mangoes from India in May and June.
The Dubai-based air cargo carrier saw growth of more than 50% in mango volumes in May compared with the same month last year. Close to 1,130 tonnes of mangoes were uplifted from Mumbai to destinations around the world.
The mangoes were uplifted both as belly hold cargo on passenger aircraft as well as on freighters.
Since April 2018, over 2,650 tonnes of mangoes have been exported on Emirates SkyCargo from India, of which 2142 tonnes were from Mumbai.
Major markets to which Indian mangoes are transported on Emirates SkyCargo include the Middle East, UK, USA, Canada and other parts of Europe.
India is one of the major exporters of premium mangoes in the world with the peak export season normally falling between April and June every year.
The state of Maharashtra is the largest grower of mangoes in India, exporting over 30,000 tonnes every year, and Mumbai is an important gateway for fruit exports.
Between April and June 2018, Emirates SkyCargo has also exported over 2,290 tonnes of other perishables from Mumbai.
A large volume of fruits and vegetables were also exported to UK and also the Middle East region during Ramadan which tends to be one of the busiest seasons for exports of perishables.
Emirates SkyCargo has developed Emirates Fresh, a specialised suite of transportation solutions that help keep perishables such as mangoes fresh during air transportation.
