Emirates SkyCargo lifts 1.18mn tonnes from Jan to mid-Dec

2023 was a pivotal year for Emirates SkyCargo; it continued to outperform the market growth, lifting 1,183,000 tonnes of cargo from January to mid-December, a 7 per cent increase compared to the previous year. “The carrier is well-positioned to scale up operations in the New Year. The airline has made significant leaps towards its long-term strategic growth plans to double capacity in the next decade, and further cement its leading position in global air logistics. Despite ongoing fluctuations in air freight, long-term trends indicate that the industry is growing at a rate of 3-5 per cent year over year,” Nabil Sultan, Divisional Senior Vice President, Emirates SkyCargo said. With four new 777-200Fs expected to be delivered in 2024 and a fifth aircraft in 2025, the order is in addition to 310 wide-body passenger aircraft that Emirates SkyCargo has on the order book, which will see deliveries of new aircraft, and new cargo capacity, through to 2035, he added. In Q1, Emirates SkyCargo leased two Boeing 747-400Fs, unlocking immediate additional cargo space in response to high customer demand. These aircraft join its fleet of 11 Boeing 777Fs and 251 passenger aircraft.
