Thursday, 20 September 2012
Dubai, During this year 2012, flydubai Cargo has signed up several interline agreements with airlines including Emirates, British Airways, Estonia Air, Coyne Airways and Jet Airways to extend its reach beyond its passenger and cargo networks.
Ghaith Al Ghaith flydubai’s chief executive officer said, “We set up our cargo division with the aim of making the transport of goods simple, accessible and affordable. Through these interline agreements we have opened new routes and thus new avenues for trade. We are now able to deliver goods from Sudan to Sydney and also provide Nepal’s handicraft industry with access to consumers in the US, Europe and Australia.
“The wide range of products being transported by flydubai Cargo shows the demand for a timely, affordable and reliable service. Less than a year into operations, we have grown our network as well as our customer base and aim to continue serving a global audience as our range and operations expand.
From the next month, flydubai Cargo will offer direct links between Dubai and Bucharest, Romania, as well as Dubai and Skopje, Macedonia. Flights will start on 1 October 2012 and 18 October 2012 respectively.
