Emirates SkyCargo launches freighter flights to Guadalajara, Mexico
Commodities that are expected to be moved on the flight to and from Guadalajara include automotive components, fresh produce and other general cargo.
Emirates SkyCargo will be commencing twice weekly scheduled cargo flights to Guadalajara from the first week of October. The cargo flights to Mexico’s tech hub will be operated by Emirates’ Boeing 777-F aircraft offering around 100 tonnes of cargo capacity per flight. Guadalajara will be Emirates SkyCargo’s second cargo destination in Mexico and its 15th cargo destination in the Americas.
The air cargo carrier has been facilitating trade between Mexico and the rest of the world since April 2014 when the air cargo carrier first commenced scheduled freighter services to Mexico City. Since then, the freight division of Emirates has facilitated trade of more than 25,000 tonnes of cargo, including exports of avocados, berries and other fresh produce from Mexico to markets in Europe and the Middle East.
The new service to Guadalajara, its second point in Mexico, will help provide additional international cargo connectivity and new opportunities to businesses in the region to connect with customers across the carrier’s growing network of more than 125 destinations. Even during the COVID-19 pandemic, the air cargo carrier continued operating scheduled cargo flights every week to Mexico City, facilitating the imports of essential medical supplies into the country while continuing to provide a channel for exports for Mexican goods to other international markets.
Emirates SkyCargo’s flight to Guadalajara will operate on Mondays and Fridays. On both days, Flight EK 9936 will arrive at Guadalajara from Mexico City at 7.20am local time and depart at 9.20am local time. Commodities that are expected to be moved on the flight to and from Guadalajara include automotive components, fresh produce and other general cargo.
