Emirates SkyCargo celebrates 25 years of Heathrow services

Emirates SkyCargo is celebrating 25 years of offering services from London Heathrow Airport.

Emirates first launched its route to Heathrow on 30th June 1991 as a thrice-weekly A310 service to Dubai.

As passenger numbers have steadily increased, Emirates has added more aircraft to the route and today offers six daily flights between Dubai and Heathrow, all of which are operated by the Airbus A380.

Meanwhile, Emirates SkyCargo, the freight division of Emirates, helps regional and national businesses export products from London to destinations all over the world.

Over the last 25 years, Emirates SkyCargo has exported nearly 800,000 tonnes of cargo from London, with popular products including luxury cars, aeroplane engines, specialised vehicles, computer accessories and even sand for building purpose. Specialised cargo, such as pharmaceuticals and perishable produce, has also been expertly handled.
