Emirates Sky Cargo begins Luxembourg service

EK and CV at LUXDUBAI/ LUXEMBOURG: June 13, 2017. Emirates SkyCargo began its first weekly B777 freighter service to Luxembourg this week as part of its strategic partnership with Cargolux that already operates a B747 service three times a week to Dubai World Central.

"Emirates SkyCargo is delighted to start our weekly freighter operations to Luxembourg," said Nabil Sultan, Emirates divisional senior vice president Cargo.

"This is an important step in our operational partnership with Cargolux through which we will be able to offer our customers an enhanced reach across each other's networks, as well as an enriched service offering building upon our compatibility in ground handling and standard operating procedures for cargo transportation," he added.

"With the arrival of SkyCargo's first freighter here, we open a new chapter in our history and lay the foundation for a fruitful cooperation for the benefit of our customers," said Cargolux president and CEO Richard Furson. "Our supplementary capabilities allow us to develop service offerings that both of us could not provide on our own."

The new flight from Dubai arrived the day after Cargolux signed a contract to set up Henan Cargo Airlines with the Henan Civil Aviation Development and Investment Company, the Henan Airport Group and the Xinggang Investment Group.

Cargolux will retain 25 percent of the new venture that is expected to launch in Q4 2018 with a Chinese air operator's certificate and be based in Zhenzhou.
