Emirates SkyCargo targets perishables with Haneda flights

Emirates SkyCargo has commenced twice-weekly scheduled cargo flights to Tokyo Haneda (HND) airport.

The flights will be operated on Emirates’ Boeing 777-300ER aircraft departing Dubai at 11.30pm local time on Thursdays and Fridays and arriving at Tokyo Haneda airport at 1:40am local time on the following days.

The carrier said that importers of fresh produce such as seafood and flowers will benefit from the additional flight frequencies introduced by Emirates SkyCargo due to the proximity of Haneda airport to local markets including the Toyosu fish market and the Ohta flower market.

“With the introduction of flights to Tokyo Haneda airport, Emirates SkyCargo has effectively re-commenced direct cargo flights from all three of its previous points in Japan,” it said.

The air cargo carrier currently offers cargo capacity on four flights a week to Tokyo Narita airport, increasing to five flights weekly from October 27 in addition to five weekly flights to Osaka’s Kansai International Airport.

“Emirates SkyCargo has continued to helped support Japanese high-tech and auto industry exports to international markets and at the same time provide a channel for imports of food and other perishables,” it added.
