SkyCargo boosts Scandinavian trade


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, the Norwegian capital and centre of the country’s shipping industry, will become Emirates SkyCargo’s third gateway in Scandinavia after daily passenger and cargo services were introduced to Copenhagen, Denmark, in August 2011 and Stockholm, Sweden, in September 2013. 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, the carrier said.

Emirates SkyCargo first started cargo operations to serve Scandinavia with freighter flights to Gothenburg in Sweden in 2003, when Emirates had no passenger flights to the region.

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.
