Emirates has increased its belly cargo capacity from Dubai International Airport to Amsterdam Airport Schiphol by adding five additional flights per week fto meet strong market demand on the route.
Four more weekly services will be started effective 1 December 2018 and the fifth will be added from 1 January 2019, increasing frequency to the Dutch capital city to 19 weekly flights, and adding to the existing double daily services.
The new service will be operated by an Emirates Boeing 777-300ER. This complements the two existing services between Dubai and Amsterdam, operated by an Airbus A380.
The 777 service will offer up to 20 tonnes of capacity per flight, with popular exports from Amsterdam expected to be flowers, pharmaceuticals and general cargo items.
During the year 2017, Emirates SkyCargo uplifted over 90,000 tonnes of exports and imports from Amsterdam.
