IntroductionAn Emirate Sky Cargo is, as the name suggests, is a cargo airline headquartered in Dubai, United Arab Emirates. It is the primary air freight division of Emirates Airlines and one of the key anchor cargo airlines for Al Maktoum International Airlines. It is a subsidiary of Emirates Airlines which is fully owned by the government of Dubai under the Investment Corporation of Dubai.
In 1993, an agreement was signed between Emirates Sky Cargo and EC International to handle all cargo shipments from America to 24 countries served by Emirates that were spread out between Europe, the Far East, the Middle East, and much of the Indian sub-continent (Banerjee, 2013). Emirates Sky Cargo's state of the art new freight terminal is located at the Logistics District in Dubai South. It was officially inaugurated in November 2015, in a grand ceremony officiated by the Chairman of Emirates Airline and group, His Highness Sheikh Ahmed bin Saeed Al Maktoum.
The launch of the new freight terminal marked another key milestone for the Emirates group, further entrenching its status as Dubai's leading global air, logistics, and cargo hub (Budd & Ison, 2015). The new freight terminal, named Emirates Sky Central is the home of 15 freighter aircraft that is part of Sky Cargo's fleet and was opened on the sidelines of the Dubai Air Show.
