Emirates SkyCargo to Vietnam

Emirates SkyCargo to Vietnam

Emirates SkyCargo will soon be connecting more businesses in Vietnam with trade opportunities across its global network. With the launch of a daily passenger service on 4th June, Emirates SkyCargo will use the 240-tonne weekly belly-hold capacity of the aircraft to stimulate trade between Ho Chi Minh City, its Dubai hub and more than 120 other destinations, including Dublin. Ho Chi Minh City will become the 14th Emirates SkyCargo point in the Far East.

Vietnam, with one of the fastest growing economies in Asia, will be able to further develop its import/export industry using the 17-tonne cargo hold of the wide-body Airbus 330-200 operating on the route. From 28th October, trade will receive another boost when a Boeing 777-300ER takes over, providing an additional 80 tonnes of weekly cargo capacity.

“Vietnam is enjoying a period of growth and by facilitating international trade with businesses in the 73 countries we operate to, Emirates SkyCargo looks forward to helping it build on this momentum and become even stronger,” said Ram Menen, Emirates’ Divisional Senior Vice President Cargo.

“With trading powerhouses like Hong Kong and China, the Far East is integral to our business and we are proud to be expanding our services in the region further, with the addition of daily flights from Vietnam’s commercial capital.

“Ho Chi Minh City is just one of 12 destinations added to our network in 2012 and as each point comes online, new trade lanes are created, a trend that will only continue as we take delivery of the 230-plus aircraft we have on order. Having used partner carriers to transport freight from Vietnam since 2005, we understand the market and needs of customers. Many more will now be able to take advantage of Dubai’s tremendous geographic location and benefit from our world-class services.”
