Emirates SkyCargo plane and cargo

Emirates SkyCargo, the freight division of Emirates, has revealed that it will soon be connecting more North European businesses with international opportunities, with the addition of its Stockholm toEmirates global network on 4 September 2013.

Stockholm, after the launch of flights to Warsaw this year, will become the 34th European destination to join the Emirates SkyCargo network, giving a further boost to bilateral trade links already in place between the United Arab Emirates and the region.

“We’ve been carefully assessing options for further expansion in Scandinavia following the successful launch into Copenhagen, Denmark in 2011,' said Robert Siegel, vice-president cargo commercial operations for Europe and Americas. 'We see great cargo potential in Stockholm which will play a vital role in stimulating economic growth with key Swedish trading cities across the Far East and Australasia.”

The Stockholm service will be operated daily by a Boeing 777-300ER, providing a total weekly cargo capacity of 322 tonnes.

“With a direct daily flight and a range of innovative products and services, as well as a fleet of over 200 modern wide-body aircraft, Emirates SkyCargo looks forward to providing Scandinavian businesses with tailor made solutions to their cargo requirements.” added Siegel.
