Se­nior Vice Pres­i­dent Cargo Op­er­a­tions World­wide, Emi­rates

There is no doubt that freighters will re­main im­por­tant to the global air cargo in­dus­try. A bit more than half the world’s air cargo is moved on freighter air­craft so in terms of ‘lead’ it is an even game with two win­ners. Freighters al­low a sig­nif­i­cant amount of cargo ca­pac­ity to be de­ployed to mar­kets with an higher cargo de­mand than belly space on pas­sen­ger flights can sat­isfy (think e.g. Hong Kong or Nairobi), while freighters are fur­ther key to the trans­port of large and out­sized cargo that may not fit in the bel­lies of pas­sen­ger air­craft - Not to men­tion cer­tain types of live an­i­mals (think e.g. race horses) or whole cat­e­gories of Dan­ger­ous Goods.

For Emi­rates SkyCargo, our freighter fleet car­ries cargo di­rectly from man­u­fac­tur­ing hubs to con­sumer mar­kets. For ex­am­ple, the flow­ers that we carry from Kenya or Ecuador di­rectly to Am­s­ter­dam. We are also able to use our freighter fleet to re­spond to any sud­den sea­sonal in­creases in de­mand where our pas­sen­ger ca­pac­ity may be in­suf­fi­cient to cater to ca­pac­ity needs of the mar­ket. Fur­ther char­ter op­er­a­tions with the de­ploy­ment of freighters on short no­tice on sin­gle or des­ig­nated se­ries of op­er­a­tions meet spe­cific needs.

Through our pas­sen­ger fleet we can of­fer high fre­quency di­rect air cargo con­nec­tiv­ity to not just Tier 1 hubs but also to Tier 2 and Tier 3 cities across sev­eral ge­ogra­phies. Emi­rates SkyCargo’s un­par­al­leled ser­vice of­fer­ing in the mar­ket is be­cause we can of­fer a com­bi­na­tion of freighter as well as belly hold ca­pac­i­ty­both of which are ex­tremely im­por­tant in re­spond­ing to cus­tomer de­mand.
