Emirates SkyCargo has said it transported more than 25,000 tonnes over the past year on the burgeoning trade lanes between South America and points across its global network. Emirates recently strengthened its commitment to the region with the launch of a new linked passenger flights from Buenos Aires-Rio de Janeiro to Dubai – the only non-stop service from Rio to the Middle East and fastest route to Asia – and increasing the frequency of its Sao Paulo freighter service.

SkyCargo said companies from Brazil and Argentina – as well as a significant number from Chile and Colombia through connecting interline flights – benefited from the addition in September of a third weekly freighter service from Viracopos-Campinas International Airport, increasing the weekly capacity on the route by 33 per cent to 620 tonnes.
