Emirates adds Santiago to its South American network

June 29, 2018

Emirates will add Santiago, Chile to its network providing up to 15 tonnes of cargo capacity per flight to the region.

 

The Boeing 777-200LR services will start on 5 July providing cargo capacity for Chilean exports including salmon and other perishables.

 

Chile is the world’s second largest producer of farmed salmon and exports of salmon were valued at over $4.6 billion in 2017.

 

The service will offer flight connections for cargo from Chile to destinations in East Asia, the Middle East and Russia through Dubai.

 

Emirates SkyCargo also offers a suite of specialised transportation solutions for perishables – Emirates Fresh – to help ensure the freshness of Chilean salmon and fruits during transit.

 

The airline’s state-of-the-art cargo terminals in Dubai also have extensive cool chain facilities including dedicated temperature controlled storage areas and equipment such as Cool Dollies and thermal blankets to ensure cargo is protected against thermal radiation.

 

The main imports into Santiago are expected to be e-commerce shipments from East Asia.

 

Santiago will be Emirates’ sixth destination in South America following Rio de Janeiro, Sao Paulo and Viracopos in Brazil, Buenos Aires in Argentina and Ciudad del Este in Paraguay.

 

Emirates SkyCargo moved 48,000 tonnes of cargo to and from South America in 2017 helping local businesses connect with customers across the airline’s network.
