Emirates SkyCargo’s Pakistan station has set a company record by hauling 29 tonnes of cargo in the belly of an Airbus 330-200 passenger aircraft. The record-braking load came soon after Emirates launched a triple daily service to Karachi.

The Karachi to Dubai load primarily consisted of sweet ripe mangoes, a very popular export from Pakistan to European destinations, along with some dry shipments. The load broke the previous record, which set in February 2001 when the Johannesburg station lifted 28 tonnes of cargo in an A330-200.

Peter Sedgley, vice president of cargo commercial operations, Emirates Airline, says “Congratulations to the entire SkyCargo Karachi team for achieving this worldwide record across our Emirates stations. This is an example of initiative and tremendous teamwork.”

“SkyCargo’s operation in Pakistan has grown tremendously over the years. It can be attributed to the consistent quality of our products and services and the tailor-made solutions that we have been able to deliver to our customers over these years. We are excited about our new services to Moscow and the planned start of services to Auckland on 1st August,” adds Fallahuddin Malik, cargo manager, Pakistan, Emirates Airline.
