All Cargolux flights to and from Dubai World Central (DWC) are now being handled by Emirates SkyCargo since early September 2017. 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 carrier said customers benefit from Cargolux’s move in Dubai as they can now enjoy state-of-the-art facilities with the most modern and up-to-date tools and equipment, particularly in light of Cargolux’s increasing pharma traffic in the region. As a GDP-certified carrier, Cargolux said it insists on delivering the best possible service for its customers; an important reason for the cooperation with Emirates SkyCargo at its new Dubai facility. In Luxembourg, Luxair Cargo operates one of the most modern healthcare centers in Europe, which is also GDP-certified.
Emirates’ ultra-modern facility, Emirates SkyCentral, situated within the Dubai World Central complex, 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. In addition, interline agreements between both airlines further strengthen the cooperation and give customers a wider range of services and destinations. The hub connectivity between Dubai and Luxembourg also contributes to boost the position of both locations as major logistics hubs and distribution centers in their respective regions.
Luxembourg-based Cargolux, operates a modern and efficient fleet composed of 14 B747-8 freighters and 12 B747-400 freighters on a global network covering 90 destinations, some 70 of which are served on scheduled all-cargo flights. The company has more than 85 offices in over 50 countries, and operates an extensive global trucking network to more than 250 destinations as well as full and part-charter services.
