Emirates SkyCargo launches Emirates AOG to move aircraft parts


Emirates SkyCargo has launched Emirates AOG to transport aircraft parts quickly across the globe.

The product is designed for airlines needing to service ground aircraft by rapidly despatching critical aircraft components unavailable at destination, and the core aim of Emirates AOG is to transport parts on the quickest possible flight connection without compromising on the quality of handling and customer service.

Special features of the product include a late cut-off time for cargo acceptance at origin – up to four hours prior to scheduled time of departure for shipments weighing less than 100 kilogrammes; expedited delivery at destination – maximum of 2.5 hours from arrival time of the aircraft; track and race visibility and priority handling.

Emirates SkyCargo has also created a unique ‘Must Go’ bag for bulk loading of small AOG shipments, designed in a striking red colour, the bag alerts Emirates SkyCargo staff to the urgent nature of the shipment ensuring dedicated priority handling for the aircraft part in transit.

Divisional senior vice president for cargo, Nabil Sultan says: “Emirates AOG builds on a number of our strengths – our extensive network spanning over 155 destinations across six continents, our frequency of operations to destinations as well as our own vast experience in transporting aircraft parts for Emirates’ fleet.

“With Emirates AOG, customers can be assured of a rapid, efficient and reliable service to transport parts that can help get their aircraft back into service at the earliest.”
