The new Boeing 777 Freighter will run a weekly service and can carry up to 103 tonnes

Emirates SkyCargo, the freight division of Emirates Airline, celebrated the inaugural flight of its new Far East and Australasia freighter route on September 12, 2011.

The weekly service, operated by a new Boeing 777 freighter will fly Dubai-Singapore-Sydney-Hong Kong-Dubai, offering businesses the chance to connect to the 114 destinations in the carrier’s network.  The Boeing 777F has the capacity to carry 103 tonnes of goods, and consumes nearly 18% less fuel than other freighters.

Emirates’ SVP Cargo Planning & Freighters, Hiran Perera, feels that customers will now experience the benefits of increased trade opportunities.  “We currently transport cargo in the belly-hold of 126 passenger flights a week between Dubai and Australia, as well as 28 Hong Kong and 42 Singapore flights,” he said.  “The freighter – with a wide main deck door – will increase our ability to carry oversized shipments.”  The import capacity to Australia will now reach 1,370 tonnes per week.

Flight EK9920 will depart Dubai at 20:35 every Sunday and land at Singapore at 07:55 on Monday morning.  The freighter will then depart at 09:00, and is due to arrive at Sydney International Airport at 18:30.  The return leg of the journey (EK9921) will depart Sydney every Monday at 21:30 and arrive in Hong Kong at 04:35 on Tuesday.  At 07:35, as EK9865, the aircraft will depart for Dubai, and is due to land at 10:35.
