Emirates SkyCargo to launch new service


Emirates SkyCargo is hoping that its September 12 launch of Boeing 777-300 ER service to Washington Dulles International Airport will further boost commerce between the United Arab Emirates and the US following the 43 per cent surge in trade last year from 2010, reaching a record high of US$18.3 billion.
A report by Air Cargo World said the Washington DC route will mark the carrier's seventh US destination, as well as its third US route of 2012. Its decision to increase service to North America was largely due to the growth of UAE export growth to the United States in 2011 up 113 per cent year on year, said a company statement.
"Offering the fastest trade link between Washington and the Middle East, will be providing a boost to the American economy by stimulating international trade between countries across our global network of more than 120 destinations," said Ram Menen, Emirates' senior divisional vice president of cargo.
"Our Dubai hub is strategically located within eight hours of two-thirds the world's population and can connect US businesses to both established trading points in the Far East, as well as emerging markets in the Indian subcontinent, Africa and the Middle East."
Prior to launching service to Washington DC, the cargo carrier will commence flights to Barcelona and Lisbon on July 3 and July 9, respectively. These destinations will join a host of other cities newly served by the Dubai-based freight carrier, including Buenos Aires; Dallas/Fort Worth; Dublin; Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam; Liege, Belgium; Rio de Janeiro; and Seattle.
