Emirates SkyCargo to reinstate dual hub operations in Dubai

Emirates SkyCargo had consolidated its cargo operations at Dubai International Airport nearly two years back

Emirates SkyCargo, Emirates’ air freight arm, has announced it will be reactivating its cargo hub in Dubai South, Emirates SkyCentral DWC, for dedicated freighter aircraft operations from March 26.

The move will mark a return to dual hub cargo operations in Dubai for the air cargo carrier after a period of nearly two years.

In April 2020, Emirates SkyCargo consolidated its freighter (main deck) and passenger (bellyhold) cargo operations at Dubai International Airport (DXB) in light of the suspension of passenger flights during the early stages of the Covid-19 pandemic. The consolidation was aimed at streamlining and expediting the transport of essential supplies and medical items across the world.

With the growth of  the airline’s passenger network and operations, as well as the significant increase in cargo volumes, Emirates SkyCargo will once again structure its operations across two hubs in Dubai, with Emirates SkyCentral DXB handling cargo arriving or departing on passenger aircraft and Emirates SkyCentral DWC handling cargo on freighter aircraft.

Emirates SkyCentral DWC, which was inaugurated in 2015, has a total cargo capacity of more than 1 million tonnes per annum. The terminal features cool chain handling facilities as well as a dedicated pharma handling zone certified for EU GDP standards.

A fleet of dedicated trucks operating round the clock will provide connectivity for cargo transfer between the two airports. For high priority cargo and urgently required commodities, Emirates SkyCargo aims to offer connection time of under five hours from wheels down at DXB to wheels up at DWC and vice-versa.
