[Avionics Today 08-21-2014] Starting Sept. 21, Emirates SkyCargo is introducing a weekly air freighter service from Basel, Switzerland to Dubai. The new air cargo operation aims to supplement the existing belly-hold cargo capacity in the Swiss market provided on Emirates’ double-daily passenger services to Zurich and daily Geneva flights. 

The Emirates SkyCargo Boeing 777 freighter aircraft, capable of carrying over 100 tons of cargo, will travel the Basel-Dubai route. The Boeing 777F is expected to carry popular commodities and goods, such as pharmaceuticals, chemicals, spare parts and medical devices. 
Basel, the center of the Swiss pharmaceutical and chemical industry will become the 40th European destination to join the Emirates SkyCargo network, boosting bilateral trade links between the UAE and the region.
