Fuel a more sustainable future

DUBAI/LUXEMBOURG: October 10, 2017. Cargolux and Emirates SkyCargo have signed a cargo codeshare agreement for passenger and freighter services.

CVEKBoth carriers will now buy cargo space on each other's flights and then resell it their customers using their own air waybills and flight numbers.

In May Cargolux agreed to provide B747 freighter capacity to Emirates SkyCargo and both carriers said they would develop block space and interline agreements for use on each other's networks - including Emirates Airline's passenger capacity and Cargolux's freighter routes.

Since then, Emirates Sky Cargo has begun freighter services to Luxembourg and Cargolux has increased its current three times a week service to Dubai World Central. Both airlines use each other's hub facilities for "seamless movement of cargo" that includes pharma and perishables, and the Dubai carrier has chartered Cargolux B747 capacity.

"Over the last five months our operational partnership with Cargolux has gone from strength to strength. We have achieved a number of the milestones that we had targeted at the outset," said Sultan. "We will now be able to deepen this partnership through our codeshare agreement and offer a more seamless and broader range of product and service offerings to our customers," he noted.

Forson added: "This partnership is a natural progression in our cooperation and demonstrates the complementarity of both airlines."
