The air freight company started cargo flights to Viracopos on October 31, 2010 and to Brussels on October 25, 2015.
Emirates’ Boeing 777 freighters have been the focus of the airline’s cargo operations since 2009 and can carry up to 100 tons of cargo per flight. In addition, they have wide main doors that allow heavy and large loads to be transported.
