Emirates SkyCargo boosts Scandinavian trade lanes
Oslo will become Emirates SkyCargo’s third gateway in Scandinavia.
July 2, 2014
Emirates SkyCargo is set to further strengthen trade lanes between Scandinavia and its worldwide network with the start of operations to Oslo, Norway, from 2 September this year.
Oslo will become Emirates SkyCargo’s third gateway in Scandinavia. The start of a daily service to Oslo, with a B777-300 ER, will provide a total of 322 tonnes of belly hold cargo capacity per week and create new trade and business opportunities between Europe’s largest oil producer and markets around Emirates SkyCargo’s worldwide network.
With Oslo joining the network and the steady growth in operations since the start of the Copenhagen and Stockholm flights, Emirates SkyCargo now offers an extensive cargo service to and from Scandinavia. From flying Norwegian Salmon to cities as far flung as Singapore and Japan, electronics and pharmaceuticals to the Middle East, Africa and other markets, Scandinavian products and commodities are being moved across Emirates SkyCargo’s extensive global network.
In addition to the belly-hold cargo operations, Emirates SkyCargo weekly freighter flights to Copenhagen will increase to eight when the two Gothenburg freighter flights are consolidated and shifted to Copenhagen.
