Emirates SkyCargo is fast-tracking its expansion into the Americas, offering offline cargo capacity to Mexico from 14th November, after having launched direct non-stop services to Sao Paulo and Toronto in October.
Emirates SkyCargo has appointed Mexican Cargo Sales Representative as its Cargo Sales Agent and its Mexican operation is now officially open for business. Cargo from Mexico will connect to Emirates’ route network from New York and Frankfurt, using interline partners such as Atlas Air, Aeromexico and Mexican. The Atlas Air freighter capacity will be offered every Thursday from Frankfurt to Mexico and on the return flight every Friday.
Fresh produce such as fruits, vegetables, coffee and cotton; temperature sensitive products; and oil industry machinery are expected to dominate exports from Mexico. Aircraft and auto parts, metalworking machines, agricultural machinery, electrical goods, electronics and various manufactured goods from Emirates SkyCargo’s network are expected to make their way into Mexico.
Emirates SkyCargo’s cool chain solutions that maintain constant temperatures for shipments throughout its transportation cycle, across countries and different climactic conditions, are slated to become a huge success in the Mexican market.
Emirates SkyCargo now serves the Americas with belly-hold capacity in three daily services to New York; six non-stop weekly services to Sao Paulo; and three non-stop weekly services to Toronto. On 3rd December it will launch thrice-weekly non-stop services to Houston.
