Emirates SkyCargo was voted Cargo Airline of the Year - for the 24th consecutive year – at the Cargo Airline of the Year 2012 awards held at London’s Lancaster Hotel.
The carrier was also named the Best Middle East Cargo Airline and the Best Best African Cargo Airline.
“These awards are voted for by our industry and their recognition of the continued success of Emirates SkyCargo is a great honour,” said Ram Menen, Emirates’ divisional senior vice president cargo.
The Cargo Airline of the Year 2012 awards are organised by trade magazine Air Cargo News and attract votes from freight forwarders around the world. The awards are the only event where the British International Freight Association audits and approves the votes cast.
Emirates SkyCargo recently introduced a fourth Boeing 777F to its fleet, taking its dedicated fleet to eight aircraft, with a further nine Boeing 777Fs on order.
Since January, it has introduced services to eight new destinations: Rio de Janeiro, Buenos Aires, Dublin, Dallas, Lusaka, Harare, Liege and Seattle. It will also launch flights to Ho Chi Minh City in June, Lisbon and Barcelona in July, and Washington DC in September.
