Emirates SkyCargo has added Mexico City and Atlanta to its flight schedule, further expanding its freighter network. The once-a-week service to Mexico City starts in Dubai with a stop en route to Frankfurt, while on the way back the flight makes a scheduled stop in Houston and Copenhagen before heading back to Dubai. The freighter service to Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta Airport from Dubai, which is also a weekly service, has a scheduled stop in Frankfurt and on the return leg stops at Copenhagen. This multi-stop service provides customers with the additional benefit to move cargo between these cities, according to Emirates. Emirates SkyCargo uses the B777 freighter aircraft for both routes.
“The recent introduction of freighter services to Mexico City and Atlanta is part of Emirates SkyCargo’s continued expansion of our route network to offer customers new trade and business opportunities across the world. Both cities are major cargo destinations, with Mexico City being one of the largest manufacturing hubs in Latin America, while Atlanta ranks tenth among North American airports in terms of cargo volume,” said Nabil Sultan, Emirates Divisional Senior Vice President, Cargo.
