Emirates hit a milestone


With touchdown in Shanghai on 15th September, Emirates crossed a historic milestone. The airline celebrates 18 years of cargo flights to China.

Since 2002, Emirates has built a reliable reputation in country and throughout the pandemic continued to support the uplift of thousands of tonnes of essential commodities.

“This is a very special milestone for us,” Michael Qu, Emirates Cargo Manager, China commented. “Shanghai has been one of our main gateways over nearly the last two decades. Just between 2012 and 2019, we helped connect close to half a million tonnes of goods as exports and imports between Shanghai and the rest of the network.

“During the pandemic, our teams in Dubai and China have worked around the clock to move essential commodities and we would also like to thank our partners and the authorities in China for their support. With our current extensive network of more than 120 destinations across six continents, including 56 cities from the Belt and Road initiative, we are able to provide a dependable and efficient trade link.”
