Emirates’ Sydney freighter

EMIRATES SkyCargo, the freight division of Emirates, has launched an additional weekly freighter service from Sydney (Australia) to boost trade shipments.

A Boeing 777 freighter will now fly twice a week on the Dubai (UAE) -Singapore-Sydney-Hong Kong (China)-Dubai route, the carrier reveals.

The aircraft can carry up to 103 metric tonnes of cargo and will boost the carrier’s import capacity to more than 1,500 tonnes per week.

“The demand for a bi-weekly service is a good indication of Australia’s growing importance as a trade partner to major international markets,” states Greg Johnson, Emirates’ cargo manager in Australia.

The airline introduced its first dedicated freighter service to Sydney seven months ago.

It currently operates 70 Australian flights per week to Dubai from Brisbane, Perth, Melbourne and Sydney, and 28 weekly trans-Tasman services to New Zealand.

Emirate’s fleet of 171 widebody aircraft includes eight freighters.
