DUBLIN: December 21, 2018. Emirates SkyCargo reports it carried nearly 10,000 tonnes of Irish exports from Dublin this year on its twice-daily B777F flights to Dubai.

EK DUB B777“Since launching in Ireland in January 2012 Emirates has been supporting Irish companies of all sizes with their export programmes, carrying more than 50,000 tonnes of cargo out of Dublin during that time, making us the number one carrier for air cargo from Ireland to the Middle East, Australia and China,” said Emirates SkyCargo manager for Ireland Michael Meagher.

“We are continuing to grow our operation in Ireland and are currently developing Dublin as a gateway to North America for cargo traffic coming from Dubai and elsewhere on our network,” he added.

Fresh food accounted for 35 percent of the SkyCargo uplift including crabs, oysters, razor shells and salmon, much of which ended up in Hong Kong, Shanghai and Singapore. Other produce to Dubai and onwards to Asia included yogurts, cheese, Irish beef, chocolates and baby milk formula.

The airline also carried over 2,000 tons of pharma exports from Dublin via Dubai to end markets in Australia, India and the Middle East. Large computer servers, electronics and machinery to the UAE, China, Singapore, Australasia and South Africa made up 35 percent of air exports during the year.
