Emirates SkyCargo has welcomed a senior delegation from Spain at its headquarters in Dubai.
A Spanish delegation including Luis Planas Puchades,the Spanish Minister for Agriculture, Fisheries and Food, and Iñigo de Palacio España, Ambassador of Spain to the United Arab Emirates, has visited Emirates SkyCargo’s Dubai base.
Nabil Sultan, Emirate’s divisional senior vice president for cargo, outlined how the carrier supports agri-businesses and perishables exporters by helping transport premium exports rapidly from Spanish gateways to global markets. Emirates SkyCargo also reaffirmed its commitment to remain a strong partner to Spanish exporters in the years to come.
Emirates SkyCargo commenced freighter operations in Spain in July 2007 with scheduled flights to Zaragoza. Due to an increase in demand, the carrier eventually established freighter services to Madrid and Barcelona in addition to the cargo capacity provided on passenger flights to the two cities. In 2021, Emirates SkyCargo exported more than 30,000 tonnes of cargo from Spain, more than 1,750 tonnes of which were fruit and vegetables.
