Emirates SkyCargo will soon be adding the Indonesian Island of Bali to its Asia Pacific network, opening up a new trade lane between the island and the cargo carrier’s network. Bali will become Emirates SkyCargo’s second gateway in Indonesia and 24th Asia Pacific point in its global network.
With the launch of its daily service to Bali, Emirates SkyCargo will off er 294 tonnes of cargo capacity per week both ways in the belly hold of a B777-300 ER, which will be used on the route. Th e new Bali service will bring to four the number of daily fl ights Emirates SkyCargo has to Indonesia – three of which are to the country’s capital Jakarta.
“With Bali joining our network, it opens up new opportunities for businesses on the island as well as for those across our network of more than 140 destinations. Our hub Dubai, which is strategically located between east and west, enables us to off er our customers in the Asia Pacific region access to markets in the Middle East, Africa and Europe,” said Nabil Sultan, Emirates divisional senior vice president, Cargo.
Goods expected to be carried from Bali include marine products (tuna and other fresh fish), household goods, leather goods and handicrafts mainly going to Europe, while household goods, personal effects, perishables, pharmaceuticals and automotive spares are expected to be imported, not just into Bali but also to Surabaya and Balikpapan, as well as other catchment areas.
