Emirates SkyCargo launches services to Turkey
Emirates SkyCargo has commenced freight services to Istanbul and Frankfurt, close on the heels of starting its third service to Shanghai and the upcoming cross-Atlantic operations to New York via Gothenburg, Sweden.
Once a week, an Emirates' Boeing 747-200 Freighter will fly from Dubai to reach Istanbul via Amman. The new service will supplement the belly-hold capacity in Emirates' regular services to Istanbul, offered five days a week. A Boeing 747-400 Freighter will also fly to Frankfurt on the same day, offering cargo capacity over and above the belly capacity in the airline's double dailies to the city.
Turkey is home to more than 4,000 foreign firms and is the fourth largest exporter of garments. It has been declared as one of the '10 big emerging markets' and one of the '20 most dynamic countries in the World Trade Organization.'
Emirates SkyCargo is anticipating huge demand from exporters across the world, particularly Asia, as Turkey is a major importer of a wide array of products – fabrics, electrical fittings, garment accessories from Hong Kong; pharmaceuticals, IT and electronic equipment from India. — (menareport.com)
