Emirates Skycargo to start Dubai-Atlanta Boeing 777 freighter service

EMIRATES SkyCargo is commencing weekly service from Dubai to Atlanta on April 6, using a Boeing 777 freighter, reported Atlanta area Air Cargo World.

"Emirates is now the 11th cargo carrier with service to Atlanta," said Hartsfield-Jackson manager Miguel Southwell. "By forging new partnerships, such as today's announcement with Emirates, we are moving forward in becoming one of the world's premier logistical hubs."

"The United States is a very important growth market for Emirates SkyCargo, with Atlanta being a major commercial and aviation hub," said Emirates vice president Nabil Sultan.

"The introduction of a weekly freighter service will create new opportunities for our customers across our worldwide network, especially the Middle East, Asia and Africa, as well as for businesses in the greater Atlanta area."

In 2013 Georgia's exports to the Middle East rose by 66.4 per cent to US$2.24 billion compared to 2010.
