Emirates SkyCargo, the freight division of Emirates, has added Mexico City and Atlanta to its flight schedule, further expanding its freighter network to more than 50 destinations around the world. 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, the carrier said.
On both routes SkyCargo uses its B777 Freighter which is capable of carrying 103 tonnes of cargo and with its main deck being the widest of any freighter aircraft, it’s able to uplift outsized cargo and carry larger consignments.
“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 VP Cargo.
