Emirates SkyCargo, the cargo division of Dubai-based airline Emirates, has signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with United Cargo, an airfreight operator of major US carrier United Airlines.
Following terms of the new agreement, which was signed on September 30, 2022, the airlines have agreed to expand their cargo interline arrangements with the aim of offering customers wider access to airfreight services and greater capacity on a larger combined global flight network.
“This coordination will deliver benefits to air freight customers of both Emirates SkyCargo and United Cargo around the world,” Emirates said in a statement.
The agreement will provide United Cargo with access to Emirates SkyCargo’s network through the aircraft belly-hold of passenger flights across more than 100 destinations, while Emirates SkyCargo will be granted access to more than 200 United Cargo-served destinations in the United States and 300 routes worldwide.
“Cooperating with United will allow us to add value for our customers and help them reach new markets more speedily,” Nabil Sultan, Emirates SkyCargo divisional senior vice president, said.
