Emirates SkyCargo, the air freight division of the world’s largest long-haul operator, Emirates Airline received on Thursday a Boeing 777 freighter, bringing its fleet up to 11 cargo aircraft.

The new aircraft registered A6-EFT completed its first flight on 26 May from Boeing’s Paine Field (PAE) in Seattle to Hong Kong International Airport (HKG), to pick up its first load bound to Dubai.

Extended range

“These investments reflect our commitment to serving our customers with the best possible assets, as well as to enabling the movement of vital goods and trade flows through Dubai,” the carrier’s divisional senior vice president, Nabil Sultan said.

On its part, Emirates stated that the aircraft’s extended range and capacity will enable it to operate time and temperature-sensitive flights.
