Bangalore is a key destination for Emirates SkyCargo

The announcement of Emirates Airline's new passenger service to Bangalore commencing October 29th is good news for cargo customers eager to increase services through Southern India's largest city and tech hub. The service will provide a substantial 120 additional tonnes of cargo capacity in both directions: an essential improvement needed to meet demand jumps across the gateway.
The new service, operated on both the A330-200 and Boeing 777-200 aircraft, gives Emirates a full eight, non-stop, direct weekly frequencies in addition to its existing weekly freighter flight.
Typical exports from Bangalore including computer equipment and garments will continue to constitute large proportions of freight out of the city. Shipments into Bangalore are expected to include growing quantities of consumer goods as well as personal effects.
"Bangalore is a key destination for Emirates SkyCargo and we have noted increasing demand for capacity over recent years," said Ram Menen, Divisional Senior Vice President, Cargo.
