Emirates Airline's Cargo Operation Takes off at New Airport

Emirates Airline's Cargo Operation Takes off at New Airport

Tuesday, 10 November 2015 06:00 AM EST

DUBAI, United Arab Emirates (AP) — Emirates, the Mideast's top airline, has expanded its cargo operation to Dubai's new airport.

Emirates took journalists on a tour Tuesday of the new Emirates SkyCentral cargo facility at the Al Maktoum International at Dubai World Central. While still largely desert, backers envision this second airport will eventually handle more than 200 million passengers per year.

For now, officials say the new Emirates cargo facility handles over 800,000 tons of cargo a year, some from the airline's 15 freighter aircraft and the rest coming from the holds of its passenger planes.

Though 77 kilometers (48 miles) from the busy Dubai International, Emirates says cargo can travel quickly there by road and be shipped off again without having to go through customs.
