Emirates to begin Oslo service in September

PRESS RELEASE

July 01 2014 – Emirates SkyCargo, the freight division of Emirates, is set to further strengthen trade lanes between Scandinavia and its worldwide network with the start of operations to Oslo, Norway, from the 2nd of September this year.

Oslo, the Norwegian capital and centre of the country’s shipping industry, will become Emirates SkyCargo’s third gateway in Scandinavia after daily passenger and cargo services were introduced to Copenhagen, Denmark, in August 2011 and Stockholm, Sweden, in September 2013.

The start of a daily service to Oslo, with an Emirates Boeing 777-300 ER, will provide a total of 322 tonnes of belly hold cargo capacity per week and create new trade and business opportunities between Europe’s largest oil producer and markets around Emirates SkyCargo’s worldwide network.

Emirates SkyCargo first started cargo operations to serve Scandinavia with freighter flights to Gothenburg in Sweden in 2003, when Emirates had no passenger flights to the region. With Oslo joining the network and the steady growth in operations since the start of the Copenhagen and Stockholm flights, Emirates SkyCargo now offers an extensive cargo service to and from Scandinavia.

From flying Norwegian Salmon to cities as far flung as Singapore and Japan, electronics and pharmaceuticals to the Middle East, Africa and other markets, Scandinavian products and commodities are being moved across Emirates SkyCargo’s extensive global network.

In addition to the belly-hold cargo operations, Emirates SkyCargo also currently operates six weekly freighter flights to Copenhagen, which will increase to eight when the two Gothenburg freighter flights are consolidated and shifted to Copenhagen from today.  

“While Gothenburg is still an important destination, we can achieve greater efficiency by operating all the freighter flights alongside one of our key online passenger points. With eight freighter flights a week to Copenhagen, coupled with the belly-hold capacity of an all Boeing 777 operation into Oslo, Stockholm and Copenhagen, we will offer more than 2500 tonnes of cargo capacity, enabling new trade opportunities for importers and exporters across the region and across our worldwide network,” said Robert Siegel, Emirates Vice President Commercial Operations Cargo, Europe and the Americas.
