Emirates bumps up cargo capacity
Published: Jan 11, 2010
Indonesia – Indonesia's export industry is expected to benefit from Emirates' planned increase in flight frequencies, between the Asian country and Europe.
Last Thursday, the Dubai-based carrier announced that with effect on 1 March this year, the current Dubai-Jakarta passenger belly-hold cargo service of 11 flights a week will increase to twice-daily, with the introduction of three additional B777 operations.
Emirates said the import of chemicals, cosmetics, machine parts and foodstuff would receive a boost, as capacity for cargo escalated by 27% to 233 tonnes weekly in each direction.
Native exports of textiles, leather products, fruits, fish, medical and computer equipment will therefore benefit from an increased access to global markets.
The recent announcement of Emirates' expansion in Europe includes daily flights to Amsterdam, Prague and Madrid, starting in May, July and August this year respectively.
