Emirates SkyCargo goes the distance
UAE – Emirates SkyCargo, the freight arm of Emirates airlines has operated its longest non-stop flight of 17.5 hours from Sydney to New York.
“The Boeing 777F boasts the longest range capability of all twin engine jets, is quieter and uses less fuel per tonne than other freighters, which are all increasingly important as the industry demands more environmentally sound practices globally,” Ram Menen, divisional senior vice president for cargo at Emirates said.
The previous longest distance flown was 16.8 hours between Dubai and Houston International Airport, TI reported.
“Being located some distance from many of the world’s key markets, a high importance is placed on range capability,” Greg Johnson, manager for Emirates’ cargo arm in Australia said.
