Emirates Sky Cargo, the freight division of Emirates, has won Cargo Airline of the Year 2013 at Air Cargo News’ awards evening. The airline was also named Best Middle East Cargo Airline for the 25th consecutive year.

Emirates Sky Cargo received the accolade at the 30th Cargo Airline of the Year awards, which took place at the Lancaster London Hotel. The event recognises excellence in the cargo, freight and logistics business and is known as the ‘Oscars’ of the industry.

“It is a great honour to win these prestigious awards and to be recognised by our customers in this way. These awards are voted for by our industry and this success would not be possible without their support. We will continue to focus on delivering the highest levels of service to our best ability,” said Ram Menen, Emirates divisional senior vice-president, Cargo.

The Cargo Airline of the Year 2013 awards are organised by trade magazine Air Cargo News and attract votes from freight forwarders around the world. The awards are the only event where the British International Freight Association audits and approves the votes cast.

The awards come at a time of continuous growth for Sky Cargo. Earlier this year, the freight division of Emirates significantly boosted its cargo capacity with the addition of three new Boeing 777F aircraft, taking its freighter fleet to 10 aircraft and its dedicated freighter network to 13 destinations. These are Taipei, Chittagong, Eldoret, Lilongwe, Kabul, Almaty, Gothenburg, Zaragoza, Viracopos, Tripoli, Djibouti, Hanoi and Liege.

Emirates Sky Cargo currently serves a route network of more than 130 destinations in 77 countries, spanning six continents across the globe.

Emirates flies on a daily schedule from Malta to Dubai via Larnaca, Cyprus. Emirates Sky Cargo is located at MIA Departures and can be contacted on tel. 2166 0102, or at [email protected].
