Emirates SkyCargo and United Cargo have signed a Memorandum of Understanding mirroring the broader commercial agreement between the two airlines.
Under the MoU, signed at the World Cargo Symposium (WCS) in London by the carriers will expand cargo interline options and blocked space agreements, pending regulatory approvals. This will build on existing cargo interline arrangements between them and offer freight customers access to more capacity on a larger combined global network.
United Cargo will gain access to Emirates SkyCargo’s network through the belly-hold of passenger flights to over 100 global destinations and 11 freighters, whilst Emirates SkyCargo will have access to over 200 cities in the US and 300 cities across five continents through United Cargo.
Nabil Sultan said: ” Cooperating with United, which is a leading airline in its own right with strengths and a network that are complementary to our own, will allow us to add value for our customers and help them reach new markets more speedily.”
Jan Krems added: “As one of the leading carriers worldwide, Emirates SkyCargo is an important player in the industry, and our supplementary capabilities allow us to provide new service offerings to our customers worldwide. We share a common commitment to providing industry-leading solutions for our customers and we look forward to working together in the future.”
