February 19, 2020: Even as the Novel Coronavirus killed more than 2000 and infected close to 75,000 people in China, the cargo handle of the Dubai based airline, Emirates SkyCargo reported strong demand for import and export in the Chinese market.

“As China reopens for business after the Lunar New Year holidays, Emirates SkyCargo is seeing good demand for the import and export of cargo into the Chinese market,” says the release. The air cargo operator has resumed the freighter services to Guangzhou (CAN) and Shanghai (PVG) after the holidays.

The flights to China are operated on Emirates’ Boeing 777 freighter aircraft offering a cargo capacity of around 100 tonnes for exports and imports on each flight. Commodities being currently transported on the freighter flights include perishable food items, pharma, medical supplies and other general cargo.

Emirates SkyCargo has been continually operating freighter services to Hong Kong and in addition to scheduled services, the carrier also recently operated a charter flight to carry relief materials.

“Emirates SkyCargo continues to support trade and movement of goods into the Chinese market and is committed to supporting China’s diverse distribution needs and supply chains through our freighter operations to Shanghai and Guangzhou. We are a market-oriented carrier and are ready to fulfil the growing needs of our customers. We will constantly review our operations to ensure that we are able to support the Chinese market by deploying adequate capacity through our freighters,” said Hiran Perera, Emirates Senior Vice President, Cargo Planning & Freighters.

“We also continue to carry bellyhold cargo on our double daily flights between Beijing and Dubai,” he added.
