Emirates SkyCargo reports 17% tonnage uplift to and from Malaysia

Emirates SkyCargo has reported growth of 17
per cent in cargo transported into and out of Malaysia during the 2018/19
financial year.

The carrier moved close to 23,000 tonnes
through Kuala Lumpur International Airport, making it the largest volume of any freight
operator at the hub, according to its cargo handling partner MAB Kargo.

Emirates SkyCargo operates three daily belly
flights between Dubai and Kuala Lumpur via widebody Airbus A380 and Boeing
777 aircraft, providing 700 tonnes of capacity every week.

The airline also flies chartered freighters into the Southeast Asia hub.
Payloads have included solar panels, e-commerce, humanitarian aid and
temperature-sensitive shipments.

Popular exports from Malaysia include electronic products and components
including semiconductors, laptops, other consumer products, spare parts for
other industries including aviation, oil and gas as well as renewable energy
solar panels.

Frequently imported commodities include pharmaceuticals, fashion goods,
perishable goods including food items and fresh flowers.

“The reason we were able to achieve this growth despite challenging
market conditions at the moment is because our customers see the value in our
offerings – our modern widebody fleet, our global network through Dubai, our
high frequency of flights allowing cargo to connect and arrive faster at their
destination and of course our specialised products and expertise in cargo
verticals,” said Bobby Chang, Emirates cargo manager for Malaysia.

Emirates SkyCargo offers cargo capacity on a fleet of 269 wide-body
aircraft including 12 freighters.
