Emirates SkyCargo operated more than 7,600 flights in May, June
Emirates SkyCargo has operated more than 10,000 cargo flights to destinations across six continents, between April and June 2020, to facilitate the movement of essential commodities and other supplies for individual consumers and businesses. The flights were a mix of scheduled, ad-hoc and charter operations.
Nabil Sultan, Emirates divisional senior vice president, cargo said: "As a customer focused organisation, Emirates SkyCargo has innovatively adapted our cargo operations and offerings over the last few months in line with rapidly evolving market demand. Starting with deploying our passenger aircraft as freighters to more recently modifying 10 of our aircraft by removing Economy Class to allow for additional cargo capacity, we have been extremely flexible and agile in responding to our customers.
"In keeping with our core value as a global facilitator of trade and economies, we have re-grown our network to over 100 destinations with robust flight frequencies to key production and consumer markets. We continue to be able to offer our customers an unmatched reach and connectivity for their valuable cargo and our flight milestones are a validation of our customers’ trust in our service."
The air cargo carrier also announced that it had operated 500 flights with cargo loaded in the overhead bins, on the passenger seats or on the floor of the passenger cabin of its Boeing 777-300ER aircraft. These flights were operated in the months of May and June 2020 to over 50 global destinations transporting a wide variety of commodities.
During the months of May and June, Emirates SkyCargo operated on an average more than 3,800 flights per month, with the aircraft travelling to over 100 destinations and covering approximately 37 million kilometres, which is the equivalent distance of roughly 50 trips to the moon and back.
Starting from just over 35 destinations at the end of March 2020, Emirates SkyCargo has expanded its network to over 100 scheduled cargo destinations across the world for the month of July 2020. From transporting urgently needed medical supplies and food to materials required for manufacturing and other industries from origin to destination, Emirates SkyCargo is helping reconnect cities to international trade lanes as manufacturing and other economic activities recommence.
