DEC 11, 2015: Emirates SkyCargo is set to start a new daily non-stop service to Sabiha Gokcen International Airport in Turkey from 15, December, 2015 adding in the process another 24 tonnes of daily cargo capacity in the route. Emirates will operate this service with a wide boy A330-200 aircraft with belly hold capacity. This is one of Emirate’s longest –running routes. Emirates SkyCargo already offers 11 weekly flights on Boeing 777-300ER aircraft. The new flights to Sabiha Gökçen will save businesses in eastern Istanbul at least an hour’s journey by truck, as it will reduce the need for cargo to be trucked across congested city streets to be shipped via Atatürk Airport. “Our cargo customers are increasingly looking for ways to ship their goods across the world at a faster pace. The introduction of service to Sabiha Gökçen not only provides an additional gateway for our customers in Turkey, but it also provides quicker access to shipping lanes for businesses located in eastern Istanbul,” said Nabil Sultan, Emirates Divisional Senior Vice President, Cargo. Each year, Emirates SkyCargo ships more than 5,300 tonnes of cargo in and out of Istanbul. Top imports include medicines, vaccinations, carpets and textiles
