Emirates SkyCargo, the freight division of Emirates, one of the fastest growing international airlines, is expanding its North American operation, increasing trade opportunities between US businesses and its global network. After the launch of daily passenger service from Dallas/Fort Worth (DFW) and Seattle-Tacoma (SEA) International airports from Feb. 2 and March 1 respectively, Emirates SkyCargo will connect seven points in North America with trade prospects in more than 100 destinations worldwide. “Our daily, non-stop flights from DFW and SEA will offer the fastest routes to the Middle East and beyond,” said Ram Menen, Emirates’ Divisional Senior Vice President Cargo. “We look forward to helping more American firms enhance their trade ties not only with the UAE, but also with markets in parts of South Asia, such as China, South Korea and Japan, and numerous points throughout Emirates’ extensive network in India and Africa.” Cargo being transported on Emirates’ flights departing the US will be handled at the airline’s Cargo Mega Terminal, housed at its state-of-the-art hub at Dubai International Airport (DXB), a location within eight hours of two-thirds of the world’s population. “When combined with the efficiency of one of the youngest fleets in the skies, unrivalled ground-handling facilities, and the very latest information technology at our Cargo Mega Terminal, Emirates SkyCargo is the ideal partner for Dallas/Fort Worth and Seattle-based businesses as they look to boost trade,” added Menen.
