Emi­rates SkyCargo adds ca­pac­ity by ac­quir­ing a new Boe­ing 777 freighter to its fleet

Cargo Talk - - Contents -

Emi­rates SkyCargo is ex­pand­ing its ca­pa­bil­i­ties and ca­pac­ity to meet cur­rent needs and for long-term growth. The air­line re­cently ac­quired a new Boe­ing-777 Freighter to its fleet. This lat­est de­liv­ery brings Emi­rates SkyCargo’s B-777F fleet to 10, and comes ahead of the move of its freighter op­er­a­tions to Dubai World Cen­tral’s Al Mak­toum In­ter­na­tional Air­port in May 2014. It is a ded­i­cated freighter cargo ter­mi­nal that will be able to han­dle 700,000 tonnes of cargo an­nu­ally.

The B-777F air­craft is one of the most mod­ern, tech­no­log­i­cally ad­vanced freighters avail­able and has the low­est fuel-burn of any com­pa­ra­ble-sized air­craft. The air­craft is ca­pa­ble of car­ry­ing 103 tonnes of cargo and its main cargo deck is the widest of any freighter air­craft at 3.7 me­tres, which en­ables it to up­lift out­sized cargo and carry larger con­sign­ments.
