Emirates SkyCargo Launch Emirates AOG
Emirates AOG was devised to answer the needs of the industry for airlines wanting to service grounded aircraft with the rapid delivery of critical aircraft components that are unavailable on site.
The key goal of Emirates AOG is to transport replacement parts on the quickest possible route and connection without compromising on the customer service and handling quality.
A late cut-off time for cargo acceptance at origin is just one feature of the new product allowing up to four hours prior to scheduled time of departure for shipments weighing less than 100 kilograms, other features include track and trace visibility of the consignment during transportation and priority handling and expedited delivery at destination – maximum of 2.5 hours from actual arrival time of the aircraft.
For bulk loading of small AOG shipments Emirates SkyCargo has also created a unique ‘Must Go’ bag, the bags are bright red and alerts Emirates SkyCargo cargo handlers to the urgent nature of shipment and ensuring the bag receives priority handling for the aircraft part in transit.
Emirates Divisional Senior Vice President for Cargo, Nabil Sultan said, “Emirates SkyCargo is committed to constantly improving our service levels and introducing new products that can respond to our customers’ needs,”
He further added “Emirates AOG builds on a number of our strengths – our extensive network spanning over 155 destinations across six continents, our frequency of operations to destinations as well as our own vast experience in transporting aircraft parts for Emirates’ fleet. With Emirates AOG, customers can be assured of a rapid, efficient and reliable service to transport parts that can help get their aircraft back into service at the earliest.”
