Emirates SkyCargo launches freighter service to Oslo for seafood exports

Oct 12, 2016: Emirates SkyCargo has launched a new weekly freighter service from Oslo to Dubai thus expanding its presence in Scandinavia.

The service is operated by an Emirates Skycargo Boeing 777 Freighter aircraft which has the capacity to carry just over 100 tonnes of cargo. Large and outsized shipments can also be easily uplifted through the aircraft’s wide main deck cargo doors. The cargo capacity offered through the weekly freighter is in addition to the 175 tonnes of belly hold capacity offered on the five weekly Boeing 777-300ER passenger flights from Oslo. The new weekly freighter service from Oslo will facilitate increasing exports of seafood, in particular salmon, from Norway. The last six years have witnessed a doubling of Norwegian seafood exports because of increased demand from global customers for Norwegian salmon, trout, cod and crab. Emirates SkyCargo has state of the art facilities at its Emirates SkyCentral freighter hub at Dubai World Central for the transportation of temperature sensitive seafood shipments. This includes over 15,000 square metres of temperature controlled storage space and 12 dedicated reefer trucks operating 24/7 between Dubai World Central and Dubai International Airport offering a transit time of just five hours between arrival of goods at Dubai World Central and their departure on belly hold capacity in passenger flights from Dubai International Airport to over 150 destinations across 82 countries in six continents across the world.
