Emirates SkyCargo is expanding its presence in Europe with new scheduled freighter services to Maastricht starting today (6 February 2018).
The airline will initially operate two Boeing 777 Freighter flights a week on Tuesdays and Thursdays, arriving at 08.10h local time and departing for Dubai World Central at 10.10h.
At the end of March the airline will increase the frequency to seven flights a week, and the service is expected to supplement cargo capacity offered on freighter and passenger aircraft to Amsterdam as well as providing air cargo connectivity to neighbouring regions in Belgium and Germany.
Emirates divisional senior vice president for cargo, Nabil Sultan says: “Emirates SkyCargo is delighted to be starting scheduled freighter services to Maastricht. The Netherlands is one of our most important cargo markets globally and the freighters to Maastricht will allow us to build a stronger presence to respond to customer needs in the region.
“In addition, the vibrant business and logistics community around Maastricht will now have access to seamless trade connections to over 155 destinations across six continents on the Emirates SkyCargo network.”
Maastricht Aachen Airport managing director, Jos Roeven adds: “We look forward to serving this important air cargo customer at Maastricht Airport. This win is a culmination of several months of hard and successful work by our team.
