emirates' chile run

The cherries made their way from Santiago on Emirates SkyCargo’s Boeing 777 freighter aircraft which have the capacity to carry around 100 tonnes of cargo per flight. In total, more than 850 tonnes of cherries were transported in nine flights from Santiago.

Cherries are one of the most important fresh produce exports from Chile. During the last financial year (2018/19), the country exported around 180,000 tonnes of cherries to global markets and the volume of exports is expected to grow during the current season.

Emirates SkyCargo is an important facilitator of exports from Chile to the rest of the world. During its first year of operations in Chile (July 2018-June 2019), the carrier helped export over 4000 tonnes of Chilean salmon to China and other markets across the world on its passenger flights. In addition to cherries and salmon, Emirates SkyCargo also helps exporters in Chile to transport other local produce including blueberries and grapes.

Emirates SkyCargo provides one of the fastest connections by air for cargo travelling between Chile and East Asia.

The carrier also offers a specialised solution called Emirates Fresh which ensures that fresh fruits, vegetables and other produce retain their freshness during the journey from origin to destination. The product is backed by the strength of Emirates SkyCargo’s modern fleet of 270 all widebody aircraft, innovative equipment including the Emirates Fresh Cool Dollies, the Emirates White Cover thermal blankets and state of the art infrastructure featuring extensive cool chain facilities in Dubai. During the last financial year, Emirates SkyCargo moved more than 400,000 tonnes of perishables across the world.

Emirates SkyCargo operates scheduled freighter services to over 40 global destinations every week and in addition deploys freighter aircraft on charter operations in response to customer demand. In South America, Emirates SkyCargo operates freighters on a scheduled basis to Brazil (Viracopos) and to Ecuador (Quito).

Emirates SkyCargo currently uses cargo hold capacity in Emirates’ fleet of 270 aircraft, including 12 freighters– and provides air cargo services to over 155 destinations across six continents.
