Dec 21, 2018: Emirates SkyCargo has carried close to 10,000 tonnes of Irish exports, from Dublin, during 2018, according to the figures released by the airline on its Irish operation.
The carrier offers up to 25 tonnes of cargo capacity on each of its Boeing-777 passenger aircraft that operate the Dublin route.
35 percent of Emirates SkyCargo’s Irish export cargo for 2018 comprised food items such as crabs, oysters, razor shells and salmon, much of which is heading to the Far East and specifically, Hong Kong, Shanghai and Singapore. Other produce making its way to the supermarkets of Dubai and onwards to Asia include yogurts, cheese, Irish beef, chocolates and baby milk formula.
Pharmaceuticals accounted for more than 2,000 tonnes of cargo carried by the freight division of Emirates from Dublin in 2018. Primary end markets for products from leading pharmaceutical companies in Ireland include Australia, India and the Middle East.
Other Irish products being exported to markets such as the UAE, China, Singapore, Australia and South Africa, and making up 35 percent of exports, include computer equipment, electronics and machinery.
Large Computer servers (supporting Cloud Technology) manufactured in Ireland are exported worldwide using Emirates’ wide-body aircraft services to Australia, New Zealand and the Middle East.
Michael Meagher, Emirates SkyCargo manager for Ireland said: “Since launching in Ireland in January 2012 Emirates has been supporting Irish companies of all sizes with their export programmes, carrying more than 50,000 tonnes of cargo out of Dublin during that time, making us the number one carrier for air cargo from Ireland to the Middle East, Australia and China.
“We are continuing to grow our operation in Ireland and are currently developing Dublin as a gate-way to North America for cargo traffic coming from Dubai and elsewhere on our network. This is a very exciting development for the Emirate SkyCargo team in Dublin, where every piece of cargo is treated with kid gloves to ensure it arrives at its destination in perfect condition.”
