Global Aviation Holdings subsidiary, World Airways, now operates a Boeing 747-400 freighter on a full-time basis for Emirates SkyCargo. Under the agreement, World Airways provides two scheduled services per week linking Dubai with Frankfurt and Sao Paulo, with an additional weekly round-trip flight between Dubai and Frankfurt. Emirates SkyCargo launched twice weekly freighter services to Sao Paulo six months ago to tap growing trade between South America and the Middle East region which has seen, for instance, Brazilian exports to the Middle East growing by 34 per cent last year.
