Emirates’ cargo division completes two years of freighter operations to Oslo
Oct 11, 2018: Dubai-based Emirates SkyCargo has completed two years of freighter operations to Oslo.
A weekly freighter service operated with a Boeing 777 Freighter offers close to 100 tonnes of cargo capacity per flight, facilitating international trade between Norway and the rest of the world. In addition to its weekly freighter service, Emirates SkyCargo also transports cargo on its daily passenger services to and from Oslo.
Norway is one of the world’s largest exporters of seafood and exports of Norwegian salmon were valued at around $4 billion for the first six months of 2018.
Over the last two years, Emirates SkyCargo has helped transport close to 35,000 tonnes of Norwegian salmon from Oslo to a number of important export markets in the Middle East and East Asia.
With Emirates Fresh, the carrier’s product for perishables, seafood exports arriving on the freighter from Oslo are rapidly transported through an unbroken cool chain at Emirates SkyCargo’s Dubai hub onto further flights on passenger and freighter aircraft.
Emirates SkyCargo’s wide spread network of over 160 destinations and frequency of flights from Dubai ensures that Norwegian salmon retain their freshness and reach their destinations in the quickest possible time.
Further, there are considerable volumes of other kinds of cargo as well transported on the route. Over more than 100 scheduled freighter flights since October 2016, large items including aircraft engines, ship propellers weighing more than 10 tonnes a piece and other outsized spare parts for the marine industry have been carried by the carrier’s Boeing 777 freighter aircraft to and from Oslo.
In December 2017, Emirates SkyCargo’s freighter aircraft also carried thoroughbred horses from Oslo to Dubai for the Dubai racing season.
The Oslo freighter service frequently carries pharmaceuticals and other general cargo.
