Cargolux and Emirates Planes

Cargolux Moves Dubai Handling to Emirates SkyCargo

Cargolux has moved all of its cargo handling on flights to and from Dubai World Central (DWC) over to Emirates SkyCargo.

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 move is inline with Cargolux’s increasing pharma traffic to the region. 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.
