Emirates Sky Cargo resumes dual-hub operations in Dubai

Recently, we learned from Emirates Sky Cargo that its Emirates Sky Central cargo center at the "Dubai World Central" Airport (DWC) in Dubai South has been restarted since March 26 for all-cargo operations. The move marks the first time in nearly two years that Emirates has resumed its dual-hub cargo operations in Dubai.

In April 2020, due to the suspension of passenger flight operations in the early stages of the COVID-19 pandemic, Emirates Sky Cargo consolidated its cargo operations for all cargo and passenger flights (with belly cargo) at Dubai International Airport (DXB). The merger move at the time was to simplify and speed up the movement of critical and medical supplies around the world.

With the recovery of the Emirates passenger network and the gradual increase in cargo volume, Emirates SkyCargo has once again established a dual-hub operation in Dubai, namely the Emirates Sky Central at Dubai International Airport (DXB), which handles passenger flights. Cargo, Emirates Sky Central Cargo Centre at Dubai World Central Airport (DWC) will be used to handle all freighter cargo deliveries.

The Emirates Sky Central cargo center at Dubai World Central Airport (DWC) opened in 2015 and handles more than 1 million tonnes of cargo annually. The terminal is state-of-the-art, with a large-scale cold chain processing facility and an EU GDP-certified pharmaceutical processing area. The airport's dedicated apron is located next to the terminal building, allowing for faster and more efficient transport of goods. A dedicated truck fleet operating 24/7 provides a seamless connection for cargo movement between the two airports. For high-priority cargo and urgently needed supplies, Emirates Sky Cargo is able to complete the entire process from loading, unloading, and take-off between Dubai International Airport (DXB) and Dubai World Central Airport (DWC) within five hours. Emirates SkyCargo, part of Emirates, provides air cargo services to customers across a global network of more than 140 destinations on six continents with a fleet of all Boeing 777 and Airbus A380 wide-body aircraft.
