Emirates SkyCargo launches new weekly freighter service from Oslo to Dubai

Posted 12 October 2016 · Add Comment

Emirates SkyCargo is expanding its presence in Scandinavia with the launch of a new weekly freighter service from Oslo to Dubai starting 11 October 2016.

 

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 5 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.
