Naki Air Cargo, an air-cargo charter company based in Florida in the United States, is preparing to start all-cargo air service directly from Vishakapatnam, India, to Dubai, UAE, according to a release sent out by Naki’s COO and Director of Flight Operations, Roger Nair. However, he has not mentioned when the services will start.
Naki will be offering this service in conjunction with a UAE based air-cargo operator, and has the capacity to utilise either A300-600 or B 727-200 freighter, depending on the cargo needs of its customers. Naki Air Cargo’s operation will be able to connect with major long-haul cargo carriers to provide seamless connections to Europe and North America, and to provide a global reach for its customers.
The new service will benefit local manufacturers, and other shippers, who currently have to move their goods through several distant airports in order to get to the UAE, or to connect with international air cargo flights to destinations in Europe and America. The service will be of major economic benefit to exporters in Vishakapatnam, home to one of India’s leading pharmaceutical industrial sectors, as well as the burgeoning IT industry based in Andhra Pradesh as well as the huge expatriate population living in the UAE, who regularly need to ship cargo home.
