Emirates SkyCargo to carry inbound DWC air freight for Cargolux
All cargo airline Cargolux will from September this year carry all of its inbound Dubai World Central (DWC) cargoes aboard planes operated by Emirates SkyCargo.
This move follows the cooperation agreement that the Luxembourg-based carrier signed with Emirates SkyCargo in May 2017.
Emirates’ cargo flights to Luxembourg are already handled by Cargolux’s partner Luxair Cargo.
The agreement plays to the respective geographic strengths of each carrier. Cargolux’s move in Dubai enables customers to enjoy state-of-the-art facilities with the most modern and up-to-date tools and equipment, especially in view of Cargolux’s increasing pharma traffic in the region.
Cargolux is a GDP-certified company and insists on delivering the best possible service for its customers; an important reason for the cooperation with Emirates SkyCargo at its new Dubai facility, the company said in a statement.
In Luxembourg, Luxair Cargo operates one of the most modern healthcare centers in Europe, which is also GDP-certified, giving Emirates SkyCargo’s customers access to end-to-end GDP-certified facilities.
Emirates’ ultra-modern facility, Emirates SkyCentral, situated within the Dubai World Central complex, similarly has dedicated temperature controlled areas, cold storage rooms, cool cells and pharmaceutical storage rooms.
It enables Cargolux to offer its customers fast and efficient services with high connectivity. Emirates SkyCargo’s specially commissioned fleet of trucks connect DWC to all other UAE airports, including Abu Dhabi, Sharjah and the Jebel Ali Free Zone.
The handling cooperation at both hubs facilitates seamless movement of cargo between the two operators.
